Programme challenges

Due to its vast programme widespread, there was a frequent monitoring and assessment travel involved. These travels were both money and time taking, as the locations were far off in rural areas with low connectivity. In the meantime, ACF being an NKN partner with NASSCOM Foundation came across the offers being flashed by Big Tech. Without further delay, ACF registered itself and took the opportunity to buy licensed software’s at minimal administrative cost. After understanding the benefit of Eagle conferencing, ACF immediately order for one and started its use immediately. The first demo within the organization was so smooth, thanks to the easy 3-4 steps involved in this conferencing package.

As described by Sukruta Dhongade, Programme Executive, ACF "Eagle conferencing came to my rescue when I had to conduct a portal demo for all my 19 locations. I just had to instruct my colleagues the simple steps and we all were connected at same point. It not only ensured smooth communication but also cross sharing of doubts at the same time. This has not only limited my travel time but also reduced my Seniors travel , who now conduct monitoring and reviewing meetings over Eagle Conferencing. Thank you very much! ".
