My name is Ravi, I'm originally a tech entrepreneur from Boston, and while volunteering for Grameen Foundation in Ghana (MOTECH maternal health program), I saw a big need for an easy-to-use Missed Call, Voice IVR, and two-way SMS platform so that anyone, especially non-techies, could launch interactive campaigns in minutes.
So, I founded a not-for-profit social enterprise, engageSPARK, to empower non-techies to build low-cost campaigns in minutes to engage patients and staff by leveraging mobile phones. And especially be able to get local phone numbers in 200+ countries.
Given the great expertise of this group, I'd like ask you all to help us test our platform and give us the critical feedback we need to make it as easy and useful as possible to launch IVR, Blasts, Surveys, Curriculums, Reminders, and Auto Replies for things like adherence, information dissemination, data gathering, etc.
Organizations like IPA, MedAir, and Mercy Corps have been using the platform and have given us great feedback. Mercy Corps has sent out over 1 Million Calls & SMS messages using an interactive soap opera format (with quizzes) for a behavior change campaign for 20,000 people in the Philippines.
I'd really appreciate any feedback to share your insights and suggestions! If you have a few minutes, sign up at https://start.engagespark.com/coupons/mhealthfeedback to get $2 in free credits to try it out and give us feedback. Check out www.engageSPARK.com for more details.
