Capture and measure everything
It’s hard to evaluate your initiatives without access to the relevant data. With Impact, you can capture and aggregate 1st, 2nd and 3rd party data in one platform and receive real-world, quantifiable outcomes of your initiatives.
“Impact is really user-friendly and is quick to use because data can be entered regularly. Since data is captured online, we save time in terms of entering data.”
01. DECENTRALISED DATA CAPTURE
Stop tying together disparate pieces of information to form a coherent picture
Impact shares responsibility for data capture across the organisation – you no longer have to collate data from error-strewn spreadsheets, documents and PDFs, or chase your colleagues for their latest data, they can do it themselves!
Impact has an easy-to-use interface that allows you to assign responsibility for leading on – or recording against – different activities undertaken by your organisation. Impactful data can be logged from any internet-connected device, meaning that you don’t need to know everything or be everywhere all the time.
02. STAY IN THE KNOW
Make capturing impact data from partners and your supply chain a breeze
In large organisations, the scale and effect of your activities can be diverse and complex especially when you also need to prove value generation across your supply chain. Getting this data is time-consuming.
Surveys are a great way of collecting and managing this in a standardised manner, combined with just-in-time reminders and notifications, you can get the data you need in minutes instead of months.
03. FOCUS ON MORE IMPORTANT TASKS
Bulk import existing datasets to save hours of manual input
If you’re not ready to or are unable to delegate data capture to your employees, adding each entry manually can take time, especially when you have a large list of activities, beneficiaries and numbers.
Thankfully, our bulk import wizard makes this easy, taking data from any excel or csv file and directly inputting entries into Impact. What’s more, our pre-made templates make sure your data is structured correctly to prevent errors and our smart input validation prevents erroneous figures from entering your data stream.
04. GET THE ANSWERS YOU’RE LOOKING FOR
Measurement framework and classification independent
In order to make sense of your data, it needs to be converted into outcomes using a measurement framework. However, many of these are too restrictive, often forcing you to use themes and measures that might not be applicable for the insights you need and overlook multiple other factors that take place around the activity your measuring.
Impact has been built to be framework independent, meaning you can analyse and interpret your data your way, using a range of measurements most applicable to you.
05. PUT DATA CAPTURE ON AUTOPILOT
Connect to the tools and services you use every day
From HR records to utility metering, our advanced API lets you connect Impact to virtually any application, service, platform or infrastructure used by your organisation.
Our platform can asynchronously pull or push relevant impact data, combine it with other entries and deliver you real-world, quantifiable outcomes and reports of your initiatives.
06. A DATA WAREHOUSE DESIGNED TO HOLD YOUR PURPOSE
All your impact metrics in one place
Without application, data is simply that: data. It’s not until you do something with it that becomes powerful information. With simple and straightforward dashboards and fuss-free reports, Impact ensures your data is doing the hard work, not you.
Advanced visualisations and dynamic, easy-to-understand charts and graphs turn your data into more than numbers, Impact provides you with the full picture as well as the context you need to understand it all.
