CommCare’s Unique Value: Highly Impactful & Scaleable

As the most widely-deployed and evidence-based platform for enabling Frontline Workers, CommCare empowers organizations to build their own digital solutions to better deliver services, manage clients, and collect data.

CommCare's unique value is its proven ability to deliver technology which is both highly impactful and highly scalable. While Dimagi shares many similar views and approaches in building technology with partner organizations, this dual focus on developing solutions that are both highly impactful and highly scalable is what differentiates CommCare from any other solutions.

In its High-Impact Growth Framework, Dimagi lists four questions that we ask ourselves to evaluate whether a potential solution we’re building achieves High-Impact Growth, and thus contributes to our mission to build and scale sustainable, high-impact digital solutions that amplify the efforts of Frontline Workers and programs.
