"In our company we refer to the Penelope Software familiarly as Penny. She is our friend in so many ways! She makes documentation, scheduling, reporting, payroll, invoicing easy!

"It has only been two months since ‘Go Live’ and already we have seen profound improvement in some of our processes. We anticipate more positive changes will occur over the next 6-12 months and look forward to the rich data we will shortly begin to extract and analyze. Importantly, we will finally begin to fully map the difference we make in the communities in which we operate."

"The ability to create documents for our own needs is a fantastic function of the system. The ability to customize fields at all levels for the system to track information we need for grants and statistics is also very helpful. I would recommend this system to any organization that tracks a variety of data elements and wants to organize your data to meet your needs."
