Apricot by Social Solutions

Apricot is well suited to help with output reporting. However, I don't believe it offers a narrative function. Apricot is well suited for capturing client intake, especially with is secure web form feature. However, it is not like GoogleForms where it can be used to either capture RSVP information or sign-in information for events or trainings.Apricot is well-suited for comparison reporting and discovering effort. However, I don't believe it has predictive features that can be leveraged.

Excellent for local and state level political campaigns. Also has worked very well for some of our non-profit clients. We do not currently use the platform outside of these scenarios.

Pros

  • The report function allows for building of reports that are specific to the information being requested by funders. The report feature is relatively simple to maneuver.
  • Maintaining client data allows this organization to have a more reliable manner to record services provided.
  • We are just beginning to use the donor section of the database for donor retention purposes.

  • Great platform for managing website, social media, and donations in a single dashboard.
  • Some particularly helpful features includes turf maps for walking door to door.
  • I really appreciate the included voter files.

Cons

  • A more mainstreamed method to record client data. At this time, our service providers are required to enter data in several sections of the program that can make data entry more cumbersome.
  • Creation of batch records for services would make data entry much better for our staff. At this time, if we provide a group counseling session, staff have to individually add the service to each client folder. When you have a group of 20-25, this is a timely process.
  • Technical support methods could be simplified with the addition of actually speaking to a tech support person instead of strictly relying on email communication. Lots can be lost in translation with this form of communication.
  • At times, it appears the servers that maintain all data are not functioning at the required capacity necessary to maintain the data. On more than one occasion, data entered would not actually show up until a day or days later, resulting in multiple entries of the same data.

  • Some of the native integrations are limited.
  • Advanced plugin support, similar to Wordpress, would make this a very powerful competitor.
  • Admin navigation and functionality is not the most intuitive.

I went to the Summit a few weeks ago to learn about the future expansion and vision of Social Solutions. I already been with Apricot for 5 years and researched other products I still come back to Apricot and where it can grow with us.

Take the time to learn apricot and all the functions before implementation. Know what the end results are before designing forms

We have only used Alice in the past. We transferred to Apricot after the creator of Alice retired and recommended Apricot as our replacement

NationBuilder is a much more capable platform, at basically the same price point.

Return on Investment

  • Able now to pull in real time statistics in our care
  • Able in real time to see the work that the nurses are doing on documentation
  • Able to use the statistics to get more funders

  • NationBuilder is very affordable, making it easy to provide a return.
  • We see a great ROI based on the simple fact that so much data can be accessed and analyzed from a single platform.
