Florence-based CharityTracker's new feature allows churches, nonprofits to record data with 1 scan
By Lucy Berry
FLORENCE, Alabama – A technology developed by Florence-based Simon Solutions to help organizations keep track of client intake and reporting data now allows assistance workers to record information with just one scan.
CharityTracker, which announced Friday that scanner and barcode technology is now being offered to use with the CharityTracker Plus product version, gives clients the option to open case files and add assistance records with a couple of scans.
Customers can also print and use scanned ID cards with the product. Officials hope the new features will streamline intake processes and cut down on the time workers spend on manual data entry.
"We believe the barcode scanning option will help charitable organizations serve their clients faster and with greater accuracy," said Simon Solutions Chief Executive Officer Ben Stedman.
First implemented in northwest Alabama in 2007, CharityTracker has networks in 678 cities and recorded more than $150,000,000 in assistance spending since its introduction six years ago.
Simon Solutions, which opened in early 2006, developed the CharityTracker after being approached by the United Way of Northwest Alabama to create a system that would link caregivers in the event of a future emergency.
The online service is now used by faith-based and community nonprofit organizations, churches and government agencies.
