About Dimagi

The spread of mobile phones in the developing world has created an unprecedented opportunity to support service delivery to underserved populations. Dimagi believes that such frontline programs have the potential to improve overall quality of life around the globe. Whether they are providing mothers in rural Bangladesh with prenatal care, or strengthening farmers’ livelihoods with better resources and support, our goal is to develop mobile technology that can improve frontline programs’ service delivery, thus amplifying the benefits to the millions of individuals served.

Dimagi has three open source mobile products that support frontline workers in low-resource settings: CommCare, CommConnect, & CommCare Supply Chain. These products support frontline workers by performing case management, decision support, data collection and monitoring, communication and logistics management, thereby strengthening ties between programs’ managers, frontline workers, and the communities they serve. 

To date, we have performed technical strategy, systems design, software development, and research for over 268 development projects in 42 countries across a number of sectors. Dimagi has successfully implemented projects with over 75 partners, including the World Health Organization, World Bank, USAID, CDC, World Vision, UNICEF, PATH, and the Rockefeller Foundation. Our 100-member worldwide team consists of engineers, physicians, lawyers, public health professionals, data analysts, project managers, and field staff.

We became a B Corp in 2010 because we shared a commitment to this movement's focus on transparency, accountability, and putting the community first. Dimagi's corporate mission reflects this commitment, as we are also a registered benefit corporation in Massachusetts.

The Change We Seek®

It’s no secret that the distribution of wealth in the world is highly unequal. Billions around the globe do not have access to basic food, health, and education resources that most people in the developed world take for granted.

Dimagi believes that many of the world’s problems can be assuaged with low-cost technological solutions. Whether it is incentivizing people in Bangladesh to access educational materials in return for free airtime – or the patient in Zambia that can carry her entire medical history in her pocket – Dimagi's goal is to utilize modern technology to improve overall quality of life around the globe.

The developing world stands to massively benefit from the technological advances that have been made in recent years and Dimagi wants to bring those benefits to fruition.
