Synergy to Develop Modules for Grants Management System for AGRA’s Existing Management Information System

  • February 5, 2020

Synergy International Systems, Inc. is proud to announce the signing of a new contract with the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA). Within this new collaboration, Synergy will be adding new modules from its Grants Management System to AGRA’s existing AMIS (AGRA Management Information System) – also developed by Synergy – to support the management of AGRA’s Programs and their grantees.

The new modules of AMIS will enable AGRA to monitor the operational performance of their programs and grants and enhance communication of results to AGRA’s partners and stakeholders with an advanced efficiency. Moreover, the AMIS will improve AGRA’s data collection, analysis, and reporting capabilities.

“We are excited over our continuous collaboration with AGRA and are working on building a system that will help AGRA to fully address grantor and grantee needs at granular level, from grant planning to administration and grant performance analysis,” says Dr. Ashot Hovanesian, Synergy’s Founder and CEO.

Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, AGRA was formed in 2006, with the goal “To increase the incomes and improve food security for 30 million farming households in 11 African countries by 2021”. The organization is working towards dramatically increasing the productivity of smallholder farms, thus helping tens of millions of extreme poverty.

In 2015, AGRA selected Synergy Indicata as the technological platform for the implementation of its corporate web-based strategy execution and Monitoring and Evaluation Information System. The centralized, automated M&E information system is designed to support AGRA’s commitment to transformation of the agricultural landscape of Africa and serves as a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation framework called to capture all program data on process monitoring and impact assessments. Since then, Synergy has continued to provide technology support to AGRA through building additional modules and providing maintenance and support.

Synergy’s Grants Management System was recognized in Gartner’s 2019 Market Guide for Grant Management Solutions. The system fully addresses grantor and grantee needs at granular level – from grant planning to administration and grant performance analysis.
