Additional organizations that are leveraging QlikView grants include:
- Doctors Without Borders (Sweden) is an international humanitarian medical organization with the mission to save lives and alleviate suffering. Doctors Without Borders is using QlikView to gain more information and effectively communicate with their target donor segments. The fundraising team has been able to track the results of campaigns and dig deeper into donors – from response rates to lifetime value of individual donors. The organization’s most valuable use of QlikView has been to visualize a five-year perspective, where they can compare the past to the future to more strategically make campaign decisions.
- KIPP New Orleans, the Knowledge Is Power Program, (USA) is a national network of free open-enrollment college preparatory schools dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and life. Recognizing the vast amounts of data in the education world, KIPP uses QlikView to enable teachers to better track students’ progress. KIPP New Orleans deployed QlikView to over 190 teachers and found the benefits overwhelming. Teachers are now able to input data about each student classroom performance, analyze it, and then quickly act on it as necessary whether that is changing curriculum or flagging an important need to parents.
- HOPEHIV (United Kingdom) is helping some 50,000 vulnerable children and young people in 26 partner organizations across sub-Saharan Africa. Through its use of QlikView, HOPEHIV is starting to gauge how effective and efficient its fundraising strategies are to make better decisions about how to allocate critical funds.
- The Shift Project (France), a think tank centered on climate change and energy issues, required a tool that allowed users to not only analyze but visualize global energy statistics. The organization integrated QlikView into its data portal, the first of its kind to provide immediate and free access to a wide range of datasets. Saving over €30,000 euros (approximately $39,000 dollars), The Shift Project has been able to create a user-friendly source of improved data for the public and has also begun to implement QlikView in human resources.
- The Philadelphia Youth Network (USA) is a workforce development organization for local youth. PYN deployed QlikView to support its finance, workforce development, student payroll, and student activities departments. In employment costs alone PYN has been able to save to $30,000-$75,000 a year. PYN plans to enable its partner network to view external dashboards and expand its use into other municipalities.
- AIDS Accountability International (Sweden) holds its stakeholder’s accountable through rating tools to increase transparency and empower advocacy for an improved response to AIDS. AAI launched the “Workplace Scorecard” which enables companies to monitor and benchmark their HIV/AIDS strategies and activities in the workplace. QlikView is used to help aggregate the data collected from the various organizations, identifying which need to improve their initiatives. With QlikView, AAI plans to include a wider range of global health and human rights data sources, providing a more complete picture of the response to AIDS.
