– Reduces manual paper work at the sites

– Helps in easy monitoring of center activities & Advance planning
The system also generates real time accurate reports with statistics, assists in recording inventory of purchased and donated assets across all centers.

Both the parents need to work to support themselves and their family, which leaves the child to fend for themselves or entrust them to older children in an unsafe environment where heavy equipment and material used at the construction sites.
Without these crèches children could go astray or led to anti-social elements in the vicinity. These crèches not only provide shelter to the children but also some basic education. The child health is also taken care through the Nutrition program including Food and Medicines.
The new digital MMC inventory system uses open source technology and is deployed on the MMC server. This system also complements the Donor Management system which was previously conceptualized, designed by TCS for MMC to manage donors and donations systematically.
