Some people say that the devil is in the details, but some say details can be a devil to deal with! According to Heather Lytle, Executive Director of F.A.C.T. (Family Advocacy and Community Training), an agency that mentors and empowers families to improve the quality of life and opportunities for children and adults with disabilities, “FAMCare was our first choice for case management because they understand that a small, family organization of 40 employees needs a software that focuses on the details without being too clinical.” F.A.C.T. has been a FAMCare client since 2014 and chose them over several other products because of their ability to modify the software to fit F.A.C.T.’s needs, as well as the constant technical support that FAMCare offers its clients.
For most organizations, case management software is about a lot more than just making your day slightly easier through the adoption of new technology. It's about leveraging the power of the digital world both to your advantage and to the advantage of the people you serve. It's about enabling superior communication that gives way to better, stronger collaboration. It's about driving business outcomes and building your enterprise around the performance-enhancing engine that you need when you need it the most.
We speak to clients everyday. We often get questions asked around the difference between "configuration" and "customization". I wanted to help set the FAMCare record straight and share how the FAMCare platform answers this question.
When looking for case management software, an agency should consider a number of factors. You want to find the ideal partner who can assist you in optimizing your case management while making the greatest impact on your performance and client outcomes.
Let's look at the Must-Have Features that your agency will benefit from when selecting case management software.
The history of the social work profession is the remarkable story of caring people responding to the evolving needs of society’s marginalized. Since the first social work class was offered in the summer of 1898 at Columbia University, social workers have led the way developing private and charitable organizations to serve people in need.
The significance of non-profit's efforts in the lives of so many people cannot be overstated. People from different cultural and social backgrounds take advantage of such non-profit organization services in completely diverse ways.
However, how does case management software help society? We respond by examining the significance of human services software in relation to the nonprofit organizations that choose to use this specialized software.
NGOs will do for social change what most organizations will not.
Non-governmental (nonprofit) organizations make significant contributions to society in terms of structural and economic change. There are approximately 1.5 million of them in the country, and the majority of them address serious social issues. Nonprofits must operate efficiently because of the nature of their business. Inefficient workflows can jeopardize an NGO's ability to meet operational objectives.
Here are some ideas for increasing nonprofit workflow efficiency.

While each implementation can be different and have their own nuances, we have a template we follow for each of our implementations regardless of the size of the organization or the type of services they offer to their clients.
A non-profit project is a rewarding idea. Whatever path you choose for your non-profit, you will be giving back to the community in some way, which can be a very rewarding experience.
But, as heartwarming as it is, running a non-profit is no easy task. It takes a lot of strategic planning, resources, and a lot of resilience to develop an initial idea and expand on it, especially when you're on a non-profit. Given the early challenges, investing in non-profit software to streamline some of your work early on will help you stay on track until much later.
