At Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, Heifer International’s Chief Financial Officer will share how the organization built a global technology platform to support the organization’s mission of ending world hunger and poverty. Heifer International, based in Little Rock, Arkansas, has helped 22.6 million families lift themselves out of hunger and poverty for more than 70 years through sustainable agriculture.
The presentation will take place on Wednesday, October 7 at 1:45 PM in Walt Disney World Dolphin, Southern 5.
“With a mission of ending hunger and poverty, leveraging technology for increased effectiveness and efficiencies is paramount,” said Bob Bloom, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Heifer International. “As we scale our impact, creating a digital platform with robust capability will enable us to direct more of our donor resources toward the small-holder farmer communities we work with.”
As Chief Financial Officer, Bloom oversees all financial, treasury, technology and human resources activities. Since joining Heifer, he has led the organization’s technology transformation initiative. This includes deploying Laserfiche enterprise content management (ECM) so staff can quickly review, approve and access project-related contracts using Laserfiche electronic forms and robust workflow automation solutions.
“Our vision is that all of our remote and local workers across the globe will use Laserfiche, which will help us work more efficiently with every dollar we spend to help others,” said Bloom.
“Heifer International is leveraging Laserfiche as a key part of its technology ecosystem to transform its business,” said Thomas Phelps IV, CIO and Chief Corporate Strategist at Laserfiche. “Laserfiche provides Heifer with instant, secure access to the information necessary to deploy aid quickly and cost-effectively, directly impacting those most in need.”
