dipoleDIAMOND “DDL” offers a Automation for Good Program (AFG) to non-governmental organizations, charities and not-for-profit entities that wish to automate some of their manual repetitive business tasks using automation tools for digital transformation. Automation for Good aims to bridge this gap by providing pro-bono automation support to three selected African non-profits. By automating essential business processes, we seek to enhance their productivity, optimize resources, and enable them to focus on what truly matters – making a difference in people’s lives.

The AFG program and bot provided for you or your organization is owned by dipoleDIAMOND or an official Partner, and is copyrighted and licensed, not sold. The term “Bot” means the software automation robot where the automated business process is built and compiled for use. Subject to the terms contained herein, this bot is granted specifically for internal business purposes ONLY exclusively within your organization.
