LogAlto offers solutions to a wide range of issues related to nonprofit and NGO data management. It is generally acquired as a monitoring and evaluation software, but its features can make your organization more efficient, organized, inclusive and collaborative.
There are many monitoring and evaluation software available on the market, it is just a matter of finding the one that will suit your NGO or nonprofit the best.
LogAlto is generally a great fit for international NGOs (INGOs) implementing projects in different countries across the globe in collaboration with various partners and funded by multiple donors.
What our clients like the most about LogAlto:
Each project can enter their own logframe, and global-level logframes can include indicators that are the same across many projects (for comparison and aggregation purposes). This makes LogAlto a monitoring and evaluation software for the entire organization, from projects, to country offices or divisions, to HQ.
Collecting accurate data is important for maintaining transparency with donors and stakeholders. Having easy access to data in the monitoring and evaluation software allows to demonstrate exactly where your indicators values and logframe data comes from. And in forms and surveys, rich context fields like photos improve auditability.
Many NGOs and nonprofits still don’t have a monitoring and evaluation software and rely on a paper-based and/or spreasheets for data management and m&e. Sharing reports and data from the field, compiling, analyzing and publishing it comes with many challenges and is very time consuming.
A monitoring and evaluation software like LogAlto gives international NGOs solutions be more efficient, standardize data entry formats and standards, collect reliable information and produce ready-to-share and ready-to-analyse data.
There are many features that makes LogAlto a collaborative monitoring and evaluation software and allow your organization to improve collaboration with staff and partners across the globe. For instance:
Users can comments on activities, form records, indicators or progress reports and tag colleagues.
Users speaking different language can easily use LogAlto.
Planning documents, progress reports and form records can be validated.
Different users roles or profiles can be configured. You can even combine profiles with organizational units (like divisions or country offices) and projects to give even more flexibility in the way access rights are managed.
Many organization now prefer to use the MEL acronym (Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning) rather than the M&E acronym and international NGOs are increasingly looking for a monitoring and evaluation software that can offer solutions for learning and knowledge sharing. With LogAlto, knowledge sharing and learning is improved through the Files feature and the Forms module (which can be used in many ways, including for sharing best practices, lessons learned and impact stories).
If your organization is already using another monitoring and evaluation software, our team can help you transition from your previous m&e software to LogAlto by importing existing data.
