Doing good in the community depends on more than your commitment and the enthusiasm of your co-workers and supporters. With more demands than ever you will need to adopt ideas that businesses are already deploying in their own quest to achieve more with available resources.
As a non-profit entity, or an organisation focussed on delivering community outcomes your main aims are generally on achieving the good works you are passionate about. This often means that you have to achieve more with limited resources and funding, reach out to communities by sending workers into the field, and rely on volunteers.
These are operational factors that make demands on your management resources and compete for your attention, distracting you from the work you really want to focus on. Alongside this, there are also the legislative requirements that apply to your activities, such as ensuring the safety of your people and accounting for how funds are used.

How Smartrak helps Community services
Smartrak solutions offer a wide range of benefits to community service organisations
Smartrak offers a broad, integrated suite that is customisable to a range of organisations’ and teams’ requirements. This ensures a single tool has the features to be used cross-functionally throughout the organisation.
Maximise scarce resources
The time your staff and any volunteers can spend achieving your organisation’s goals is dependent on the good management of resources. To ensure this, you need the tools to efficiently allocate people and assets, track activities in the community, and respond to changing requirements.
Being a non-profit organisation doesn’t excuse you from the legislative requirements surrounding safety at work and fiscal responsibility. Therefore, ensuring that your procedures and systems are supportive of a safe working culture and that your operations are efficiently run should be prime considerations for all managers in the sector.
Keep your worker safe
Weather they are driving or visiting people in the community, your workers should be confident they are operating within an organisation that values their safety. By gaining visibility of workers wherever they are and taking advantage of the range of duress solutions available, you can fulfil your duty of care to employees and volunteers.
Meet your obligations
The demands on managers in the non-profit sector are just as stringent as the corporate world. Indeed, it could be said the expectation that funds are used wisely places the bar even higher. In this environment, having access to the reporting that underpins cogent decision making and sound management is an absolute necessity.
Ensuring assets, such as vehicles, are correctly used is much easier by combining a pool booking solution with secure key management. This will ensure that keys can only be accessed by authorised personnel and only for the journey or task stipulated.
Start doing more with less
Community Service organisations use Smartrak to support the safety and welfare of employees while serving the community.
