In order for Champions to track their inventory this will require a phone, however it does not have to be a smart phone and it does not require internet from the user standpoint. Each week the champions will receive a text message from a Ugandan phone number from Bana’s administration platform, FrontlineSMS.

Their response is sent to the server for the administration to observe, analyze and manage inventory. The Champion only needs to send one SMS message per week, noting the amount of boxes she has sold, and the amount of boxes she needs.

This is a brief manual detailing step-by-step instructions for Champions to integrate mobile inventory tracking into their sales. This manual will need be used during mobile inventory training workshops as Champions make the switch from paper to SMS records.
