Flexible themes, metrics & evaluation standards
Impact is framework independent, meaning we don’t tie you to specific sets of themes, metrics, proxy values or evaluation standards. During the onboarding process, our consultants will help you identify and utilise the most relevant metrics and (where necessary), proxy values specific to your organisation’s activities.
Impact removes uncertainties in your data, blending both binary metrics and the stories behind your outcomes to show the true depth and effect of your actions.
The thought of implementing a social value measurement tool across 17,000 employees and hundreds of accounts across the UK was a daunting thought, but with Impact’s professionalism, flexible approach and expertise, they enabled us to start our journey.

Understand the effects of actions on beneficiaries
A positive trend on a graph does not necessarily mean success. To ensure the generation of long-term sustainable impact, you need to understand how your activities are affecting your beneficiaries in the real world.
Impact is the only social value platform to have built-in surveying functionality that provides the insight you need to evidence the success of your activities and understand changes in beneficiary wellbeing over time.
Eliminate resource-blocking back-office processes
Stop relying on manual processes and paper to process data
The high degree of manual processing that has traditionally come with social value evaluation is costly, slow, and it can lead to inconsistent results with a high error rate.
You need a faster way of creating reports, without the back and forth. With Impact, any member of your organisation can collect and log the activity data you need, helping you take a faster, more economical and lower resource-intensive approach.
Digitize data capture workflows
You no longer have to collate data from error-strewn spreadsheets, documents, PDFs, or chase down colleagues for activity progress. Impact simplifies and digitises the process, with activity data able to be logged from any internet-enabled device or system.
Powerful data filtering and validation
Put the power to create firmly in your hands. Powerful, customisable filters let you uncover the information you need for reports and stakeholder updates in just a few clicks, without having to rely on 3rd parties or trawling through numbers on a screen.
Easily connect to existing systems
Eliminate duplicates, enrich your reports and add a whole new dimension to your disclosures by connecting to 3rd party systems and data warehouses. With Impact, you can pull data from just about anywhere with our OpenAPI.
Produce reports that tell a story not just numbers

Impact lets you draw out the stories really taking place on the ground, from beneficiaries, allowing you to easily evidence and demonstrate where and how you claim value.
