Apricot Now With PIR Reporting

PIR Report Now Available in Apricot

Organizations specializing in early education are working diligently to provide young children with the tools they need for success. Outside of traditional PIR Reporting software, there have not been many tools made available to them.

In an effort to continue our commitment to education from Cradle to Career as well as furthering our partnership with the Ballmer Group, Social Solutions is driven to improving outcomes for children of all ages. That’s exactly why we’re adding the PIR reporting functionality within Apricot. It’s an incredible functionality so email your Account Manager to learn more.

What Is PIR Reporting?

“PIR” stands for Program Information Report. All grantees and delegates are required to submit PIR data reports each year as a requirement for the Head Start program. PIR is important for several reasons. One reason is that it can help you continue to tell a story with your data.  Head Start also requires nonprofits to provide a program information report. Apricot with Head Start PIR will now allow your organization to do the compliance report needed for funding along with anything else you would need to track.

Many Head Start organizations depend on this report to be able to provide services to children who are just starting out in the education system. It only makes sense to provide these same organizations with the powerful functionality that Apricot can provide. By adding the PIR Report into Apricot we’re allowing organizations to receive funding that is imperative to their mission, providing industry-leading insights and data on the overall health of their programs, and eliminating dual data entry by consolidating databases.
