The HELIOS Foundation

Our purpose

The Foundation was established to provide long term stability for HELIOS and the user group and to enable fund raising for collaborative development.


Why Automate?

It is only over the past 10 years that the humanitarian sector has begun to adopt supply chain disciplines to drive efficiencies. So why automate the supply chain?



HELIOS software is the offshoot of a collaborative effort by the humanitarian sector to design, develop, and implement the next generation of sector specific Supply Chain Management.
