New York, NY (PRWEB) July 11, 2013
charity: water, a non-profit organization bringing clean water to people in developing nations, has partnered with WorkZone, a leading provider of web-based project management software, using WorkZone’s software to plan and coordinate the installation of remote monitoring sensors at 4,000 water wells across the developing world. The sensors will transmit data to establish the health of water projects allowing for more effective monitoring and provision of clean water. Such a large project requires robust project management, and WorkZone project management software has been selected to help coordinate the efforts.
“WorkZone provides a great balance of high-level project visibility for senior management and tactical to-do lists for the day-to-day teams,” states President of charity: water, Christoph Gorder. “We were able to get up and running quickly with very little training. We’re excited to continue our relationship with WorkZone in this new undertaking and for many years to come.”
charity: water was founded in 2006 by Scott Harrison, who previously worked as a photographer documenting the effects of contaminated water throughout West Africa. Harrison found himself dismayed by the millions of people without reliable access to clean sources of water, and upon return to the United States founded charity: water in an effort to remedy the situation he had viewed first hand.
Since then, charity: water has funded over 8,600 water projects in 20 countries. Those projects will serve more than 2.5 million people.
This past year, charity: water began using WorkZone in an effort to organize its staff and projects more effectively. WorkZone is a project management software company located in suburban Philadelphia. Founded in 2002 by Rick Mosenkis and Allan Kalish, WorkZone offers sophisticated web-based project management tools that can be used by non-technical users. Inspired by charity: water’s mission, Mosenkis reached out to the organization offering its program free of charge.
“Access to clean drinking water is so fundamental to good health,” said WorkZone CEO Rick Mosenkis. “I already give personally to charity: water and thought WorkZone software could make a big difference in helping charity: water fulfill its far-reaching goals.”
Charitable giving is a big part of WorkZone’s culture. WorkZone has a managed charity foundation through which employees donate a portion of their profits to worthy charities. To date, more than $500,000 has been contributed.
