Say Hello to Jambo

Jambo is a cloud-based Stakeholder Relationship Management (SRM) engagement software platform used by organizations and governments worldwide. Considered an inclusive process, it provides tools for task management, automate communication channels, issues, commitments, and reduce risks for enabling workflow solutions.

Launched in 2016, Edmonton-based Jambo helps organizations manage their stakeholder engagement and consultation projects by helping teams collaborate in real-time to track, report and stay on top of their stakeholder information. It quickly and easily can log stakeholder communications, issues, commitments, tasks and contact details.

All information in Jambo is stored securely in the cloud in real-time, so users always know they’re viewing the most up-to-date stakeholder information.

A purpose-driven company

The company name Jambo (jam-bo!) is a Swahili greeting similar in meaning to the English word “Hello.” The name was chosen because all consultation starts with “Hello,” but the meaning and connection also runs much deeper for our entire team with the organization’s commitment to supporting Classrooms for Africa, a Canadian-based charity that provides direct assistance to communities in disadvantaged areas of Sub-Saharan Africa that want to build classrooms and other school buildings like dormitories and kitchens.
