  • Budgeting and forecasting

    Analytics tools can help nonprofits eliminate the challenge of managing the budgeting, planning, and forecasting processes through dozens of unsynchronized spreadsheets. Instead, they centralize the data and simplify collaboration using Integrated reports.

  • Fundraising and targeted outreach

    NPOs perform several events throughout the year to improve their outreach and get more donors and funds. They must track this data. The historic analysis of this data can help them leverage the power of Predictive Analytics to find which of their events/ activity/ location/ email have responded most positively and what went wrong.

  • Regulatory compliance

    Nonprofits are bound by regulations governing the types of data they collect, how they use it, and what to report. Business intelligence can help organizations gather, organize and analyze data; compile reports; and comply with requirements.

  • Unified view and global Insights

    NPOs face changes with their scattered data into different systems and files. They need integrated systems to understand the impact of one activity over the operations/ finances or available resources. This can be done by connecting siloed systems and then projecting everything on a unified dashboard
