We have developed a data management application for voluntary and community sector infrastructure organisations across Derbyshire. They can now maintain and utilise a shared database of all groups/organisations in the sector and record their interventions with them. This will massively improve reporting, monitoring and overall effectiveness.
The application is complex in structure and yet user-friendly in form. Each partner organisation can customise the data they collect and can manage the extent to which it is shared. There is a website component that allows the general public to search and browse (www.communitydirectoryderbyshire.org.uk). The administrative systems are complete and in use by the partners, with the source data being continuously updated.
In addition to the technical development we have worked with the partnership management team to specify and implement the system across the county. We have delivered user training to all of the partner organisations and in many cases performed data migration from their existing systems. It all sounds so simple in a few sentences!
