Community Software Puts Integrated Data at Your Fingertips
Communities must take action now to address the problems of increasing poverty and soaring high school dropout rates so every child has the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential. To reverse these destructive trends, requires dedicated community and city leaders who are willing to collaborate with local resources to turn the tide on this social epidemic. Now, civic and community leaders can use the power of technology to better identify problems, address needs, monitor outcomes and make comprehensive changes that will ensure the success of future generations.
Nonprofit and city collaborations require more accurate and timelier information, as well as analytic tools and knowledge-sharing assets to better identify needs, map community resources and examine social data and statistics. To win this battle with limited resources available, nonprofits must become results-driven to create positive, dynamic change.
Community Software Solutions
Our Community Center suite offers your organization two very powerful web-based solutions to visualize and map data that will assist in reversing adverse trends and identify critical service gaps: Community Compass® and Community Server®.
Your data has a compelling story, and Community Compass helps you tell it. This web-based navigational tool gives you immediate information, single-point access and registration capabilities for local, community-based programs and services. By aligning individual needs with the best available resources, Community Compass becomes a vehicle for systemic and measurable change.
