Introducing CyberGrants Insights: Bring your data to life

This deep analytics solution lets you organize, optimize, adapt and enable programs faster than ever before with a hands-on approach to understanding and exploring your data for real-time decision making and rapid response when emerging needs arise.

The vision for CyberGrants Insights was born during the first-ever virtual Social Impact Leadership Conference (SILC)  last summer. It’s no secret that 2020 was a year of momentous change, from a nationwide lockdown and months of social distancing to global protests calling for racial equality. As a result, corporations launched COVID-19 campaigns and began implementing and expanding their social justice programs. Across the US, nearly every corporation brought racial equity to the forefront of its CSR campaigns. But how do we measure the impact of these programs? How do we measure equity? CyberGrants Insights was developed in response to these very questions. 

Gathering data from your CSR campaigns is only the tip of the iceberg. While collecting and reporting data is crucial, it is inherently biased. It merely shows what we already know, but what happens if you want to explore? What if you want to steer and innovate your CSR programs? What if you want to measure your impact? The data alone isn’t enough. CyberGrants Insights allows you to do more with your data by providing you with tools to be agile in your CSR efforts. 

How Insights Works: 

Before you can begin exploring, analyzing, and engaging with your data, it’s essential to compile all your information into a standard dashboard. CyberGrants Insights is laying the groundwork to give you the ability to merge your CyberGrants transactional information with additional data including web analytics, support statistics, census data, and industry benchmarking information. Stay tuned for updates on how you can organize and enrich your data within the platform, making it more accessible and allowing for visualization and exploration!

The simple, user-friendly visualizations are where insights are derived- this is where we measure impact. Within the Insights dashboard, your data becomes accessible through color-coded bar charts, pie graphs, and maps to spark curiosity and promote exploration. The simplicity of the interface aids in highlighting issues and shortcomings as well as the positive impacts of your CSR programs. Until now, finding trends amongst sets of data was akin to searching for a needle in a haystack. With CyberGrants Insights, you can easily filter your data by type to quickly visualize and understand those trends. But most importantly, the organized data structure and visualizations are how you measure the impact of your CSR efforts.
