Non-Profit Turns to Graphical SaaS Dashboards for Low-Cost, Low-Risk Performance Management Solution
LOUISVILLE, CO--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) - myDIALS, the leader in SaaS performance management, today announced that Access Services, a large non-profit organization providing services for children and adults with mental health, developmental and physical challenges, has implemented the myDIALS performance management platform to measure and improve the quality of programs for individuals with special needs. myDIALS' software as a service (SaaS) dashboards deliver a snapshot of strategic business, operational, financial, HR and safety metrics that enable Access Services managers and staff to make more informed decisions about how the organization is performing.
Prior to working with myDIALS, Access Services tracked critical metrics by sifting through paper reports. Easy enough for all staff and department heads to understand, myDIALS now allows Access Services users to drill into data and monitor trends in order to focus on the quality of services they're delivering to clients. This includes initiatives such as tracking fundraising, revenue and expenses, measuring the impact of foster children home studies, maintaining low staff turnover rates and closely monitoring case management for children's crisis programs to minimize the number of psychiatric hospitalizations.
"In our goal to help people with special needs live successfully in the community, we are accountable to those we serve and we strive to show first-hand the effectiveness of our services," said Rob Reid, CEO, Access Services. "Though of course I had all the pertinent data to do so previously, viewing it through the lens of myDIALS brought it all into focus and gave me new insights. The intuitive, graphical format was an eye opener and I believe that myDIALS will make us a better organization. With the right information, we can make better decisions, manage more effectively and improve the quality of our services."
myDIALS was the right choice for Access, because it is the industry's most complete SaaS performance management solution that provides sophisticated analytics and what-if scenarios to help users quickly identify, characterize and fix issues. myDIALS automates data connectivity and extraction with more than 35 standard connectors to on-premise or SaaS operational and financial data sources, including NetSuite, Oracle, SAP, databases, spreadsheets, emailed data sources or manual data entry. By eliminating up-front capital expenditures, the myDIALS SaaS model ensures low-cost, rapid deployment and customization.
"We worked closely with the Access Services' team to understand its operational and business needs, helping the organization identify critical performance metrics, who should view them and how they'd be used to improve operational efficiency and outcomes," said Wayne Morris, CEO of myDIALS. "As a non-profit, Access Services appreciated the cost-effectiveness of our SaaS model: there is no need to buy hardware or software and there is no need to devote valuable internal IT resources to the project."
