Manipal Foundation has entered into a new partnership with Treeni Sustainability Solutions for a CSR
management contract from FY 2020-21 onwards, in a bid to help overcome multiple challenges faced by
the former in managing data from their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities manually.
Manipal Foundation is the social and philanthropic arm of Manipal Education and Medical Group
“Manipal Foundation was facing multiple challenges in managing the data from their CSR activities
manually. Budget and expense tracking for all CSR projects, overall project management, and continuous
data mining were some of the critical problems they were facing. With Treeni’s “resustain” CSR SaaS
platform, they were able to eliminate human errors in evaluation, free up management bandwidth and
optimize resources while onboarding multiple projects. Inbuilt email integration allowed seamless data
entry through individual templates, and reduced the time and effort spent in managing these functions
significantly,” a release issued here stated.
The platform also generates financial data and budget allocations reports, tracks fund status summary
and project schedules in real time. The current workflows have been aligned to the organization’s
processes for tracking and managing all monthly expenses, it added.
Rajen Padukone, CEO, Manipal Foundation said, “Treeni’s platform ‘resustain’ and the responsiveness of
their people has provided valuable ways of streamlining and automating our processes.
‘Resustain’ has helped track fund status summary, donations and other financial reports, and the overall impact of running programmes, primarily virtual classrooms in monthly senior management dashboards.
We are expanding our reach under the CSR programmes and this renewed partnership with Treeni will help us in managing our data in a seamless, automated manner. We see Treeni as our long-term technology
Ankush Patel, Founder and CEO of Treeni said, “We are proud to be associated with Manipal Foundation
given all the cool work they are doing especially around education, healthcare, livelihood and
community development, given their importance in addressing gender disparity and inequality, and
preparing a skilled future workforce. Manipal Foundation is one of our first clients. The CSR space in
India is constantly evolving and requires solutions that meet the client’s unique needs, we have been
able to deliver that to Manipal Foundation.”
