Dimagi's vision is to apply open-source and scalable technology to improve community-based service delivery across the world. Dimagi has produced a suite of three core mobile applications. The flagship tool is CommCare, an open source turnkey platform that enables partners to develop their own content of protocols and data collection, utilize multimedia for low literacy interfaces, and manage their program’s performance.

The two other tools are CommConnect, a solution for building SMS applications allowing for two-way messaging, conditional reminders, surveys and broadcast messages, and CommTrack, a tool for mobile logistics and supply-chain management. Dimagi has found multimedia to be universally popular among clients and holds strong evidence that recorded audio improves the persuasive power of health and other messaging.
