Are you an evaluator or consultant interested in PARTNER CPRM?

Leverage our platform as part of your business or firm’s services by joining our Evaluator Program. You’ll get access to the platform, training, and capacity-building opportunities to help you support communities as they implement the tool.

Tell your community partners, funders, and key stakeholders a compelling network story.

Every group of partners has a story to tell about their work and its impact on real people’s lives. PARTNER CPRM helps create the ‘front cover’ of your community’s collaborative story by visualizing how you all came together, built new ties, and collaborated over time to make a difference in your community.

Demonstrate the impact of your collaboration with community partners and link processes with outcomes.

Network analysis and visualization is a powerful way to link system and community outcomes to show how your relationship-building approach affects the broader system and community. Demonstrate your shared impact to support grant applications, communicate with stakeholders, and target your community interventions.

Generate actionable insights to improve your performance and create a network strategy

Most organizations focus on building a bigger network of partners with more interaction and engagement – but that saps everyone’s time, resources, and energy. PARTNER CPRM provides relational data and insights to build smarter, strategic networks that include the fewest number of key relationships required to achieve your goals.

Say goodbye to CRMs and spreadsheets.

Managing a network or ecosystem of partners isn’t easy – yet most organizations rely on spreadsheets or CRMs to track what’s happening. Yet these tools don’t track how your partners interact and how your network structure and dynamics change over time. PARTNER is the only platform for providing visibility into your entire collaborative ecosystem.
