Those working in stakeholder engagement and consultation are challenged with a difficult task. We’ve been there – planning consultation programs, engaging with stakeholders, gathering concerns, proposing mitigations, logging every communication, and filing regulatory reports.
In 2016, we started working with industry, governments, sustainability professionals, and stakeholder consultation practitioners from across North America, to identify the consultation challenges they face.
One thing became clear, stakeholder engagement requirements are increasing, take up a lot of time, and the administration is not fun. Recognizing this, we set out on a journey.
We merged our expertise in developing exciting, easy-to-use web applications with our knowledge of the challenges faced by organizations in completing their stakeholder engagement requirements.
We have one clear objective: to create the fastest and easiest stakeholder engagement and consultation software on the planet.
Today we call it Jambo.
Jambo (jam-bo!) is a Swahili greeting similar in meaning to the English word "Hello”. We thought this fit well because all consultation starts with “Hello”, and although Jambo is the name of our product, the meaning runs much deeper. Jambo is a part of the Silvacom Group of Companies, an organization that has a deep and long-running relationship with a Canadian non-profit called Classrooms for Africa.
Classrooms for Africa provides assistance to communities that want to build classrooms and other school buildings in disadvantaged areas of Sub-Saharan Africa. Being a socially responsible business was a decision we made right from the start.
That is why we have joined the Pledge 1% movement and have pledged to donate 1% of Jambo profits to Classrooms for Africa.
Jambo partners are power users that have been trained and certified in using our software.
Our Partner Program gives companies working in stakeholder engagement or consultation the opportunity to work with us to grow their businesses by empowering them to offer the fastest and easiest software solution in addition to their exceptional services.
Our Program is a mutually beneficial offering. If you're interested in joining, email us email@example.com.
