What Is An Ecosystem?

What Is An Ecosystem?

PARTNER is intended to help you track your community ecosystem: The network of organizations, entities, institutions, and individuals that produce community outcomes you seek to change. Your ecosystem contains a list of members, a set of questions used to collect data from them, and banks and email and report templates used to collect data and share findings. Your data is collected by creating one or more "Data Captures" within your ecosystem. 

From Projects to Ecosystems

For more than a decade, PARTNER was designed around projects. However, as the world increasingly embraces the network way of working, we've seen the need for a more dynamic and adaptive framework for ongoing network analysis and ecosystem tracking.

The Benefits of Ecosystem Management

By shifting to an ecosystem-based format, you can create more advanced network tracking systems that leverage comparative and longitudinal analysis in addition to our existing tools and features. It's a game-changer that provides dozens of untapped opportunities for innovative mapping, tracking, and analysis in the future. We can't wait to show you what we have in the works.
