It's been an exciting few weeks here at DaizyLogik. Our team attended this year's Nonprofit Technology Conference, and as a result, are even more excited about the ways technology can help nonprofits and social enterprises like you scale your impact.
Special thanks to the NTEN.org community for putting together a fantastic collection of collaborative notes. These can be found here.
Last Tuesday, the DaizyLogik team also attended the Salesforce World Tour in Washington, DC. Keep your eyes on Einstein, the integration of artificial intelligence, and the many ways Salesforce apps can help your organization streamline your systems so you can put more face time into the areas that need it most.
Last Tuesday was also Equal Pay Day in the United States, and Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff hosted a panel with equal pay activists, and winners of the Salesforce Equality Awards, Lilly Ledbetter, Patricia Arquette, and Billy Jean King to discuss how employees and CEOs can work together to close the gender pay gap. Mary J. Blige also received the award during Monday night's award ceremony.
HomeKeeper 2.0 – Building the Future of HUD Reporting in Salesforce
Grounded Solutions Network worked with DaizyLogik, SoPact, and an advisory committee of users to help develop HomeKeeper into a HUD compliant CMS. As a sector-wide program management and impact measurement tool, HomeKeeper was well positioned to build on their popular app by expanding the housing counseling features and seeking approval from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Once made publicly available, HomeKeeper will be an excellent tool for affordable home ownership programs that offer workshops and other housing counseling services.
While other technology systems exist that support the Housing Counseling industry, none of the other HUD approved client management tools have been built on Salesforce. Organizations have been unable to have a consolidated view of their homeownership and housing counseling programs. Frustrated program directors couldn’t easily report on the breadth of their services, the overall demographics of their client base, and the impact of their work across multiple programs.
Grounded Solutions Network knew that it would be no easy task to meet the security requirements for a Salesforce managed package and overcome the hurdles of expanding HomeKeeper to meet HUD’s requirements. As a result, they partnered with two Salesforce Partners, DaizyLogik and SoPact, to help them maneuver through the complexities of this project.
