SOLUTIONS & SERVICES
The CRM can be SalesForce, Excel, Zoho, HubSpot, or any other cloud-based CRM. A live connection will be made to the CRM via a webhook (ie. Integromat) so that donor and stakeholder information will be continuously updated and visualized via an ArcGIS Dashboard. The dashboards will typically show maps, graphs, and analysis of current situations.
- INSTANT NOTIFICATION EMAILS – each time a survey is submitted with an answer that contains a positive potential symptom the appropriate manager can be notified.
- DASHBOARDS OF RESULTS – Results of all surveys are viewed in an online dashboard for summaries and contact tracing.
- DAILY REMINDER EMAILS – Optional daily emails can be sent to remind your employees to fill out their survey before returning to work.
- COMPANY LOGO AND BRANDING – all surveys can have your company colors and logo shown prominently.
- HEALTH SYMPTOM SURVEY TEMPLATES – Select a survey template and we can help customize the questions to meet your needs.
- PRIVACY – This data is private and shared only with critical personnel, and is used to keep everyone informed in a sensitive way.
Custom Mobile Applications (including Native Apps)
Bay Park Data Solutions will work with your nonprofit to configure a mobile survey with custom questions and features. Use these surveys in the field in remote locations without internet or cell service while still collecting location information to aid in transparency. Once the field workers are back within WiFi service they can upload the surveys so that managers and stakeholders can view the data and begin to analyze the results.
We help build out quality control data checks and automated emails to identify issues or send summary results weekly.
Recently Bay Park DS launched a beta version of the Global CHE Network application running "natively" on a mobile platform and will be publicly accessible on the Apple and Google Play stores.
The mobile application is built using Esri's AppStudio and Survey123 platforms. The Global CHE Network mobile app is designed to be used by members of the Global CHE Network. However, we can help your nonprofit create your own branded native app to be used on mobile devices as well!
StoryMap Stories typically include maps, along with narrative text, lists, images, videos, charts, embedded items, and other media. In addition to incorporating “live” online maps, users & readers of StoryMaps will have access to some very cool technology and functionality such as swipe, pop-ups, and time sliders that make exploring the content a fun and truly immersive experience.
A story can effect change, influence opinion, and create awareness—and maps are an integral part of storytelling. ArcGIS StoryMaps can give your narrative a stronger sense of place, illustrate spatial relationships, and add visual appeal and credibility to your ideas. (Esri)
As a donor trying to understand a nonprofit’s mission can be daunting. It's a lot more effective if the nonprofit includes maps of where their projects are happening, where they are providing their services, and where they are changing the world! This is called “geospatial” data. A “geospatial database” has a locational component, but also includes all the information associated with that location in a database (Excel is a database) that can be accessed through an online map, or even better, a StoryMap!
The team at Bay Park Data Solutions designs dashboards that are viewable to only your management staff or they can be open to the public so that donor and stakeholders have more transparency to your daily activities. Submitted data through the surveys is viewed “live” on these dashboards and you can even embed these dashboards in your websites or a Story Map.
