Overall Satisfaction with Apricot by Social Solutions

Apricot is being used by our Program division, which includes shelter, housing, hotline, counseling, children's court services, and violence prevention education. It has enabled us to go almost paperless. It has enabled us to accurately record services and run reports. It is helping reduce silos so that when a client comes to us they are served by the entire organization, not individual programs.
  • Creating edits and forms does not require IT expertise.
  • There is a client portal for electronic forms.
  • It is internet based.
  • HUD reporting is pre-built in the system.
  • Reporting feature now includes graphs with color.
  • Chat support is very responsive.
  • VOCA report is pre-built but can't be used to accurately report all services provided.
  • Some features are limited if you use Apple/ipad products.
  • Accurate data entry.
  • Reliable reporting.
  • Able to audit staff data entry.
We are new to using Apricot. We just implemented 3 months ago, creating new forms. We completed our report creation last month. We are still working to streamline data entry with staff. I did add a not grant funded feature to our system which allows staff to record when they provide a service that is not funded. This will help us determine additional funding needs.
I have yet to confirm this.
Salesforce, Peoplesoft, Charity tracker, and Clienttrack.

It was cheaper than Salesforce. Included pre-built HUD and VOCA reporting. Did not require IT person to customize in-house.
The product is suitable for organizations who provide case management as the foundation of their services. Great for agencies in need of HUD, VOCA, or HHSC reporting made easier. Well suited for organizations wanting client data entry to be mobile, not limited to a server. The functionality does get challenging if you have multiple government funders.
