Victoria Brain Injury Society Goes Live With NewOrg for Complete Data Management and Outcome Reporting
Turnkey PIPEDA-compliant solution migrates 10 years of legacy data, replaces homegrown Access database with comprehensive features, including 3 primary NewOrg modules for Case Management, Volunteer Management, and Donor Management to provide streamlined services and better access for brain injury survivors, including self-service online portals, volunteer vetting + matching and payment processing for donations/fundraising events
WASHINGTON and VICTORIA, British Columbia, November 18, 2021 (Newswire.com) - NewOrg Management System, a leading data management platform for nonprofit organizations, social service providers and government agencies, today announces a successful implementation project for Victoria Brain Injury Society.
Founded 36 years ago, Victoria Brain Injury Society (VBIS) provides support, education and advocacy to brain injury survivors to empower them to move toward emotional, economic, and social self-reliance. Traumatic brain injury is the No. 1 killer and disabler of young Canadians under the age of 40. Headquartered in British Columbia, VBIS gives survivors and their loved ones long-term support through the many steps of life after brain injury through peer support and 12 comprehensive programs.
Because of growing demand for its services and the desire to provide better outcome management for staff and funders, VBIS was seeking an affordable new solution to streamline its workflows and offer better online access to its clients to replace its homegrown Access database and disparate forms, surveys and other tools, according to Pam Prewett, Executive Director of VBIS, and after careful analysis selected NewOrg to meet the challenge.
"We are a small non-profit organization doing social service work and rely on volunteers and donors to help us provide service to our clients," Prewett said. "Finding an affordable database system that could provide information for case management, donations, and volunteers was critical in our decision because our former database didn't allow us to access all the information we needed in the same place. NewOrg's system has allowed us to consolidate all three areas for easier access for our staff and volunteers."
Within a few months of collaborative discovery, engagement and implementation, the NewOrg team provided VBIS and its staff a fully PIPEDA compliant, 100% integrated Outcome Management + Reporting System — a central point of data collection for Donor Management, Volunteer Management, Case Management, Client Service Tracking, Fundraising Events and Funder Reporting, highlights of which include:
- Online Client Intake Forms, automated sign-ups and payment processing for paid events, additional surveys and assessment forms with streamlined workflows for its 12 main programs
- Volunteer + Donor Management System including an online volunteer portal to promote open positions/opportunities, a volunteer intake form, event registration calendar sign-up and workflow to streamline vetting and matching, and online fundraising portal to manage and process payments and other activities via standard NewOrg system functionality
- Customized outcome tracking and reports 100% designed to provide everything needed for VBIS staff, stakeholders, and its funders (with ongoing support for any changing requirements and program data capture methodology) as well as end-user training through custom workflow manuals, online training sessions and 24/7 access to NewOrg's comprehensive web-based video library
"I love that I can easily access all the information I need about our stakeholders, whether they are funders, clients, donors… in one place," Prewett said. "I also appreciate how easy NewOrg reports are to generate and provide all the information I need in one place. I no longer have to worry about exporting and combining multiple spreadsheets to access the statistics I need for better reporting to funders."
From those just released from hospital, to those who have lived with their injuries for decades, brain injury survivors consistently express gratitude and relief once they've walked through the Victoria Brain Injury Society's doors. This new solution now assists VBIS clients, volunteers and donors via a new streamlined "online door" that provides easy access to VBIS services and programs like never before (especially important as we combat the pandemic).
"NewOrg has been great to partner with … starting from my first interaction with our sales rep, John Baker to Jared Ferguson, our customer service rep, who has been amazing - very quick to respond to any questions we have, extremely knowledgeable and supportive of my staff learning a new database. We look forward to future customizations and enhancements to help VBIS achieve our ongoing mission goals, including among many other things peer-to-peer fundraising pages."
