Your organization works with people to help improve lives, and an important part of that is being able to track the progress that they’re making. This often includes staff inputting data, but for Apricot Core and 360 users, there’s a new tool to help increase engagement while reducing staff workload. Connect for Apricot is a new feature that puts power in the hands of your participants. You can learn more about it over on our product blog.
What does this new feature mean for you and how does this affect your organization’s day-to-day?
For example, say that you work for a nonprofit that gets multiple new participants at once during a crisis response. In place of a member of your staff inputting all the information for all your new participants one at a time, they can instead collect an email address from each person, as well as all necessary information to begin, and work on starting service delivery. Using Connect for Apricot will save your staff time by decreasing their workload. Instead of spending an hour inputting information and walking each new participant through an assessment, they can gain back valuable time and use that time to deliver more impact in those participants’ lives in the wake of a crisis.
From their own devices, those new participants can fill out demographic information that your organization utilizes in reporting, take assessments, and answer surveys thanks to Connect for Apricot. Giving participants agency over their information not only increases engagement within your organization, that engagement can have a direct impact and further propel them towards their goals. Not only are those participants going to be able to receive services quicker in the wake of the crisis your organization is responding to, they are going to be able to continue to engage through those assessments and surveys long-term. The sense of ownership of their journey that this process can provide can have a positive impact on their long-term journey, as will being able to visualize their progress over time.
Using Connect for Apricot will save your staff time by giving participants the ability to provide data from their own devices, and you can use the time given back to deliver more mission. It also increases engagement throughout your organization by empowering your participants and giving them agency over their journey. This transparency can positively impact their journey long-term, and give them the opportunity to provide mission-critical feedback, all from the comfort of their own devices, on their own time.
