Transforming Non-Profit Custom Software for Report Generation
How Aciron does it
Principal investigators and a national nonprofit association that serves health departments were seeking to enhance their volunteer survey system. In addition, they were looking to advance the knowledge of public health preparedness. Therefore, they needed technology consulting and an online toolkit.
To start, the existing tool the team had was not meeting their research needs. As a result, they approached Aciron Consulting to reconstruct an online toolkit. In short, it would assess the effectiveness of engaging volunteers in public health events. Overall, the new system increased data collection, thorough analysis, and data reporting from field locations throughout the country.
Therefore, Aciron conducted brainstorming sessions to capture and thoroughly understand the client’s needs and goals. Then, Aciron analyzed project requirements,the practicality of the existing system, and identified improvement areas.
Aciron presented a strategy for the development and design of a new online survey system and toolkit. For example, this would facilitate more effective gathering and analysis of research data. Thus, providing sophisticated statistical analysis and graphical representation of real-time results. Throughout the engagement, Aciron personnel answered questions and offered suggestions. Also, Aciron continuously discussed the project with the client to make sure the client’s needs were fulfilled.
In conclusion, Aciron developed a user-friendly system to collect, analyze, and report research data. The system allowed users to complete custom questionnaires. In addition, they provide feedback on the effectiveness of relevant public health events. Likewise, the system’s automated reporting allows administrators to analyze and generate real-time custom reports.
Furthermore, administrators can log into the system and view survey data in charts and graphs. Similarly, administrators can view statistics on survey data by defined criteria and filter by custom variables in real time.
To sum up, the tool is being used as a vital component of both researchers’ investigation into public health preparedness and by public health practitioners. Also, the tool has been successful in evaluating the effectiveness of engaging volunteers in public health activities.
