Customer Reviews

Doxa Youth Foundation

Socialsuite has allowed the team at Doxa to engage meaningfully with outcome measurement and evaluation. Because the software is so interactive and can easily show full cohort, to groups, to individuals, it allows Doxa staff from program facilitators and managers to senior managers and fundraisers to evidence the impact Doxa programs are having and identify the areas of improvement within a short period of time from data collection.

1. We could customise SocialSuite to fill our exact needs 2. Their team were fully involved in the mapping process, going over and beyond what we asked of them 3. Our fundraising team loved the interactive dashboard. Our Impact team were also able to quickly analyse data and make better decisions through it. 4. Whilst the back-end allowed us to have a robust and complex framework, our team had easy and simple surveys for beneficiaries to complete, and they integrated straight into the back-end.

Collective Action

Socialsuite have been great to work with because they listen to the customer and respond to their needs. Socialsuite’s stand out function is that it enables the user to aggregate evaluation data from across multiple activities to present a picture of the overall impact of an organisation. I have not found any other software that has this functionality. It is also very affordable so it is a viable product for small organisations.

Scope

Working with Socialsuite has been a very positive experience. All of the people I have been in contact with have been extremely helpful, responsive, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure that our needs are met. The software makes it easy to collect data as well as conduct analyses. The analytics are quite powerful and present data in a meaningful way.

The Scanlon Foundation is using Socialsuite to measure the impact of social and cultural cohesion.

The Scanlon Foundation funds and supports programs that foster social cohesion and celebrates cultural diversity. The Foundation has developed its own social cohesion metrics, and is a key supporter of ongoing research into measuring social cohesion.

The Scanlon Foundation has designed their own impact measurement methodology, and is currently using Socialsuite to implement this methodology through measuring the outcomes of the programs they support.

Participants of Community programs supported by Scanlon interact with Socialsuite by completing surveys relating to the impact areas Scanlon Foundations are addressing. Program staff also interact with Socialsuite by providing program outputs to show in relation to the participants impact. This data is rolled into reporting dashboards, enabling the Scanlon Foundation to visualise how their grantees are tracking against their overall impact goals.
