At Impact Institute we develop software for impact measurement and reporting on different levels and for different types of users. Our solutions build on our innovative open-source method and data such as the GID and monetization database. The software can be tailored to your needs and to the impacts relevant to your organisation.
Our experience ranges from a full Integrated Profit & Loss measurement tool suited for external reporting for a large bank, dashboards, data collection apps, to farm survey tools among others. The tools are designed using your input and feedback and can be hosted on our secure cloud servers.
