Selecting the right software to help your organization collect, manage, analyze, and/or communicate data about your work in your community is an important decision that can have major consequences. Unfortunately, there is no silver bullet software – every organization is going to use an array of different technology tools that serve complementary purposes. In this training, we will explore the categories of software tools your organization may want to consider as you grow in your ability to measure your impact. We will also share several of the category-leading tech tools used by many small and mid-sized nonprofits. And we will illustrate a process for selecting new software (including templates) that you can use for your next technology selection task.
