Partner Capacity Indicator
The partner capacity indicator is a quick visual way to gauge in real-time how much capacity a partner organization has to take on a referral. So whether they're in the green and ready to help or inching toward red, everyone in the system can stay informed on each other's status and continue to work to improve resource allocation and how they serve families together.
Community Referrals Report
This report is a per partner organization breakdown of incoming and outgoing referral volume.
It is available to all users at every organization, reflecting our commitment to transparency and belief that knowing more will allow communities to do better.
Real time notifications
The notifications feature offers a way for partners to stay informed on the status of their referral in real time.
They can opt-in to email notifications when a partner comments on their referral request so everyone knows what's going on at all times, making communication fast and easy.
What should we budget?
We are a not for profit committed to making IRIS accessible to communities who need it to accelerate their vision for change. As such, our focus is on measurable results and outcomes—at an affordable price.
