Sahaja aharam(www.sahajaaharam.in) a farmer producer organisation in India is looking forward to implement a white label instance of OFN in India. @ramoo who is a key member of the initiative sees a great potential in OFN, and he was involved in a few calls last year with @MyriamBoure too. Sudhir(@kothagunda) is also involved currently in this pilot and we would like to get going at the earliest.
Sahaja aharam currently works with around 20 farmer cooperatives across various states in India, and would expand further. They have a packaging hub, a distribution hub and around 10 stores across 2 states currently and are looking forward for support for digitalising their supply chain end to end. They also are looking to expand to consumer hubs which would directly interact with either distribution hub directly or the stores based on requirement of quantity and logistic effort.
They wanted to test out quickly how OFN would suit their requirements and how easy is it to manage various regular tasks from Inventory management , Traceability to Order Mgmnt. Some of the key requirements are ease of usage and able to be use it from mobile. @ramoo and @kothagunda would be jotting down more requirements in the coming days, but currently to get the pilot started, wanted some help from any of the developers in setting up a quick test instance, so that we can allow the team try out various features. The current India OFN instance is a little outdated too, so looking for help updating the codebase too. Once we get some traction I can pool in some local resources and take over. We are looking to get a basic instance up this weekend itself. They already have some server space, or if we think digitalocean or AWS would be best, we can choose that too. Another option is to point to an existing unused server where we could use it to build their logic and customisation.
Anyone can pitch in sometime to get this going ?
