MAPSS solutions are based on extensive consultation with stakeholders, in-depth research, and field data collection. The solution is implemented and maintained using the latest technology, and support workflows to monitor, manage and report on project objectives, all of which allow for outputs that can be measured against social and ecological baselines.
MAPSS solutions lead to better, faster, and more effective decisions.
What is a solution?
We start by asking questions to identify the problem – what are the problems and where are the problems located?
We then propose management interventions centred on data collection routines to track key performance indicators (ecological, social, and economic). We develop mobile applications that allow field data collection and use remote sensing to complement the field data component.
- Real-time updates on changes in key performance indicators and;
- Insights where interventions can be focused to achieve project goals.
Sophisticated analytics allow for modelling tools to analyse data, visualize patterns, and make predictions to ensure that management interventions have maximum impact.
First, we identify the problem. To do so, we engage with key executives, programme managers, and frontline practitioners to define the solution requirements and verify that all ecological, social, and economic objectives are met. Second, we map these to specific technical requirements and create feature sets that serve as the integrated development framework. During this phase we also identify key performance indicators (social, ecological and economic) to monitor and track the success of interventions. Third, working prototypes are delivered to the client as often as possible. This allows us to continuously review and refine requirements at each stage of the development process and ensure the highest value is delivered with each release. Lastly, we look for opportunities throughout each development stage to integrate existing technologies and data into new, unified solutions to extend the value of capital investment.
