“As someone who helped create Coalition Manager, I can honestly say that it has significantly transformed the efficiency of our organization. Gone are the days of manual counts, hash-marks, paper records and narrative documents. With Coalition Manager, we moved our record-keeping and reportable grant activities from multiple paper and electronic sources to one centralized solution that is both quick and easy to use. Now with a few simple clicks, we have grant required data in a matter of seconds, freeing up the days of work we previously undertook for each progress report.
Unlike generic database management systems, Coalition Manager was designed specifically with our work in mind. So rather than being forced to change our internal processes to fit a canned solution, Coalition Manager functions exactly as we need it to. And because it was built on a fully scalable platform, it can be modified at any time to accommodate our future needs as well.
Our partnership with Element 74 has also been a tremendous benefit. Working with their team has been a joy because of their technical knowledge and extreme responsiveness. Because they understand and appreciate the work of coalitions, they are also able to coach and guide us into best practices. Element 74’s ongoing technical support is also top-notch and friendly. At the Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence wouldn’t dream of using any other method of documentation.
You deserve at least one easy activity in your day, Coalition Manager is it.”
“Being a small state coalition with four full time staff and 32 member programs, it was increasingly difficult for us to manually key in all of the information being reported by our members. Our previous method of using Excel spreadsheets for data collection was very time consuming and not a good use of our staff time or resources. Coalition Manager has given our member programs the ability to securely input the required information directly to us. This feature alone saves our staff significant time, and allows us to focus on providing technical assistance and collaboration on special projects that greatly benefit our members. Coalition Manager also allows us to create training events, track registrations, and keep a historical record of staff attendance for all of our 32 programs. In addition, the platform allows us to internally measure the activities of our team members, which helps us provide a more accurate account of our efforts around the state to both our board and funders. It should also be noted that our experience with Element 74 and their staff has been wonderful and we appreciate their assistance whenever we have any questions or customization needs. Overall, we are very happy using Coalition Manager as our data collection and reporting software and would recommend it to any state domestic or sexual violence coalition.”
“Coalition Manager puts everything I need in one place. The system saves me time so that I can focus more on revenue development rather than reporting. Coalition Manager has been developed from a state coalition perspective, which makes preparing annual federal grant reports a breeze. The database has tremendous flexibility, an easy user interface, and meets the evolving demands of our growing organization. Our coalition continues to grow and we are mobilizing more individuals, business partners, and service providers. There is no way that we could support this growth with our the membership management capacity that Coalition Manager provides us. It is simply the best system that I have ever used and I would highly recommend it to any state coalition or member association.”
