You're using networks to make a difference...
We can help
The PARTNER Platform is a robust network analysis platform that uses network science to help visualize your partnerships, demonstrate collective impact, track and adapt your strategy to do more, together.
PARTNER Platform Collaboration

The PARTNER Platform uses data to change the way we build networks.

Networks are the new normal, but they can feel complicated and in-efficient, making it hard to tell if a network approach is actually helping.
The PARTNER Platform is a CPRM (Community Partner Relationship Manager) that uses network science and analysis to help you map and track your collaboration over time. This makes it easy to find efficiencies, evolve your network strategy and improve the outcomes of your work.
Program to Analyze, Record, & Track Networks to Enhance Relationships
Whole Network Tracking

PARTNER is a CPRM (Community Partner Relationship Manager) designed to track not just how an organization interacts with its own partners, but how all of them interact with each other.

Scientifically Validated Metrics

A network map is only as good as the data that goes into it. PARTNER is built around our validated metrics, developed through decades of network science research and professional practice.

Mapping & Data Visualization

PARTNER’s robust network analyzer was built with a network science lens to help you quickly explore and leverage network connections. Use GIS Mapping for additional place-based insights.

Relation Quality Analytics

Measure the quality of partnerships and relationships within your network using our trust and value scores to identify connections that can be strengthened and improved.

ROI Tracking & Improvement

PARTNER provides numerous ways to measure your process outcomes and demonstrate collective impact. Track the return on investment from your partnerships to drive impact.

Greater Collective Impact

A shared tracking platform provides partners transparency to reflect on and improve their collaborative processes. This is scientifically proven to lead to better group outcomes.

Hear what our clients & partners are saying

VNL is an amazing team of professionals who are actively building tools, like PARTNER, that we need to measure collaboration, networks, and more. They think outside of the box, and they are an innovative partner when it comes to trying to define and measure those things that are innately challenging.


Katie Edwards

Executive Director, The Nonprofit Centers Networkl
“There’s very little data about what it takes to create effective cross-sector collaboration. What VNL does with network science and data provides real insight into what empowers multi-sector collaboration and networks to advance health in communities around the country and world.”

Kate Kingery

Deputy Director, County Health Rankings & Roadmaps
VNL and their PARTNER network data have been critical components to support County Health Rankings & Roadmaps in analyzing existing networks around the country. VNL provided important training on network science concepts, network mapping and analysis, and SDoH resource allocation within networks. We were able to align health rankings data with VNL’s analysis of inter-organizational relationships and partnerships to identify gaps for targeted outreach.
Building a Network Strategy

Justin Rivas

Network Strategist, County Health Rankings & Roadmaps

We have worked with VNL over the past five years, and utilized PARTNER to assess the collaborative function of community-based quality improvement learning teams. PARTNER allowed us to assess how we work together for health improvement planning and identify how we can target our efforts to optimize capacity development. It is a pleasure to work with Dr. Varda and her team.
