The Best 4 Features Coming to the New PARTNER CPRM 2.0 Platform

On October 24th, our team will launch PARTNER CPRM 2.0, the most powerful and easy-to-use version of our platform to date. Designed to help map, track, and strengthen community partnerships, networks, and ecosystems, the new version includes advanced features and robust improvements to deliver more to our community partners, clients, and customers.

We wanted to highlight four new features and improvements that we are especially excited to introduce this month. Let’s start with our new Ecosystem Management system – a centerpiece of the 2.0 re-design.

1. New Ecosystem Management System

After working with community networks for more than a decade, we’ve seen and experienced the limitations of “one and done” style evaluations and SNA projects. Networks are constantly evolving, dynamic entities that require tracking to understand and appreciate over time.

We re-built PARTNER CPRM around an ecosystem management framework ideal for tracking partnerships and networks over time. You can create multiple captures within your ecosystem – a data record of a specific sub-network or interaction with partners. 

After capturing multiple networks or interactions in your ecosystem, you can use the Analyzer as various levels to map, analyze, and compare your connectivity across sub-networks and interactions. This powerful new design has numerous use cases and provides a flexible foundation to use PARTNER CPRM in myriad different ways.

2. Improved Network Analyzer Capabilities

The Network Analyzer is where the magic happens in PARTNER CPRM. Here’s what’s new in the new and improved 2.0 version.

The Crosstabs feature allows you to uncover hidden patterns across your network members and data. Included within the Analyzer, it compares question responses by member attributes like sector, and focus area, to identify patterns with a color-coded visualization. Export them directly to the Report Builder to share with your stakeholders.

In the main Analyzer interface, the newly rolled out system of node and relationship filters lets you build network maps using various options. You can color code nodes and edges or vary them by size to show relationship attributes like levels of trust or power, metrics like centrality, highlight resource contributions, or attributes like sector and geographic location.

Lastly, the new PARTNER CPRM 2.0 platform is making it easier to control the appearance of your maps and visualizations to match your style and brand:

  • Drag nodes to move their position and lock them in place
  • Lock nodes in place while applying new filters and settings
  • Re-color nodes and edges to match your brand style
  • Change label size, node size, and line thickness
  • Click a button to re-run the Node Layout Algorithm

3. The New Report Builder

The Report Builder is a new way to share your network maps, charts, tables, and crosstabs with partners and stakeholders to make the most of your data and insights.

Create report templates at the ecosystem level for use across your data captures and networks. Add network maps and charts saved from the Analyzer, and add your titles, descriptions, and interpretations to add more detail. You can also customize the Member Profiles that show each partner’s responses, network map, and other information.

When you are ready to download and share your findings, click a button to export your reports as high-quality PDF documents or share access to Member Profiles with an online link you can copy and paste.

4. Streamlined New Interface and Style

Throughout the entire platform, you’ll notice a streamlined interface with new icons, menus, and navigation options. Designed by our talented UX/UI Manager, Steve, the new 2.0 interface emphasizes usability and simplicity. The layout makes it easy to jump between the ecosystem and network levels, access account settings, and access various features with only one or two clicks.

We want to know what you think about our new interface and other PARTNER CPRM 2.0 improvements. Join our Wait List below to try exploring the platform on October 24th and share your feedback.
