Federal Technology Fund Addresses COVID-19 Community Challenges
COVID-19 is forcing communities across Canada to find new ways to address the immediate and ongoing challenges posed by the pandemic. Infrastructure Canada is funding an opportunity for municipalities to identify innovative digital projects that address changing community needs through the use of data and connected technologies.
We are inviting municipalities across Canada to hear from our panel of experts about how digital solutions can help respond to immediate and ongoing needs arising from COVID-19 over the next two years.
The diverse panel of experts we will be hearing from include Minister Bardish Chagger MP for Waterloo, Iain Klugman of Communitech, Tracy Elop from Carizon, John Neufeld from House of Friendship, and Dana Fox from Athena Software.
How to reduce errors and enhance data efficiency within your case management
In some of our previous sessions, we debated how to grow funding and serve more clients and how to secure grants.
It’s extremely important today and in the future that social service and nonprofit organizations demonstrate effectiveness to continue or grow their funding base. The ability to display efficiency will not only ensure optimal ROI for your funders but also enable organizations to serve a larger group of people or provide additional services.
Join Jordan Fox, Athena Software’s Director of Sales, and Amanda McInnis, our VP of Customer Success and learn about:
- Why it’s important to reduce errors and improve efficiency
- What tools and features are available in Penelope to help accelerate this journey
- Integration capabilities through the Penelope Integration Engine
- Examples and scenarios of Penelope customers leveraging modules and features like Walk.Me and our pre-loaded Standard Assessment
