Streamline data reporting and inputting.

Let's build innovative mission-driven solutions for the future.

Integration Connects your Various Apps... Here's Why it's Important for Mission Driven Organizations

A Case for Integration

Technology's presence in our offices is expanding - integration is the glue that links all of our applications together. This not only streamlines our operations, but effects greater capacity for learnings that we can leverage for strategic planning.

More Apps

Applications like Salesforce and Quickbooks oversee segments of our operations. We tend to keep these applications seperate. 

Data Collection

The process in which we collect the data is an important piece of our overall integration strategy. Certain processes for data collection are better equipt to limit human error in reporting.

More Data

With more Apps comes more data. We are storing fragmented data sets, sometimes with duplicate data entrys that may be inconsistent. 

Building out a Data Ecosystem

Cloud integration tools can link together your applications so that they are able to automatically share data. This can dramatically streamline data reporting processes, saving time and money.

Data Aggregation

With more data comes the need for data management. The aggregation of our data in one place sets us up for better analysis. By aggregating this data we can better organize our processes. 

Automated reporting to external funders

Integration's potential for automation can extend to reporting requriements. In this case study about the HomeKeeper app, Grounded Solutions Network was able to automate their reporting to the Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Impact Reporting

Dashboard analysis can make this even faster and serve as a powerful tool for communicating our impact.
