Bileeta’s Entution Vesta powers health commodity supply management in Nepal

Improving the health of Nepali citizens and supporting the country’s National Health Policy and Health Sector Strategy 2015–2020 has been the primary objective of USAID’s Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project in Nepal.

In supporting the Nepali government institutions to easily access and use data for decisions to improve the health of all Nepali rural community, the Cloud and Mobile based ERP Platform of Bileeta ‘Entution Vesta’ recently became part of USAID’s GHSC-PSM project to streamline the health commodity supply chain management process.

The solution reduces manual paperwork involved in inventory management, communication and approval process and becomes the central access point for real time logistic status. Entution Vesta is also linked with mobile apps which ensures that everyone involved in the process from central procurement to last mile service delivery point including mid-wives are well equipped with information to make timely decisions to serve the community.

Chief Executive Officer, Bileeta (Pvt) Ltd., Sanji de Silva said, “It’s a privilege for Bileeta, a 100% Sri Lankan company to be a part of a project of this magnitude with USAID, Chemonics and Ministry of Health in Nepal. We have successfully completed phase 1 of this project by empowering 22 districts out of 77 districts and now in the process of rolling out Entution Vesta to cater to rest of the 55 districts which is around 4,000 health facilities across Nepal.”

Chief Technical Officer, Bileeta (Pvt) Ltd., Sankka Weerasinghe said, “The biggest challenge we had was how to implement a cloud-based solution for remote sites with poor infrastructure such as lack of stable internet connectivity or electricity. Besides the online solution, we offered a version that can work on offline mode and also as mobile apps at those sites.”
