Social Enterprise Enabling Development
Our partner is a social enterprise distributing life-improving products ranging from solar lights and fuel-efficient cookstoves to reusable water filters and rechargeable batteries. They equip local retail shops in peri-urban and rural locations with the stock and knowledge and resources to sell it so it can reach those who need it.
They need to implement a new system that would enable them to integrate their accounting, logistics and procurement. They have identified and tested the new software, and have started their data migration in September. You will be supporting with project management of the data migration; they are looking to migrate inventory, pending balances from shop owners, and sales history data. They recently appointed a Project Coordinator who would need to be mentored in order to work independently after your placement is completed.
You will also support in implementing a better stock count process, and you will be developing and outlining processes to ensure that their new logistics software integrates with Quickbooks. This could involve outlining features for the developer to add, and creating processes for their team in Bangalore to follow.
This role requires a volunteer that is comfortable to work in a busy environment and more than 50% of the time remotely, as the team members are frequently travelling inside India. Please note that as this role centres around systems implementation, depending on your availability, the implementation will have progressed and therefore your exact objectives will need to be confirmed.
