The program enrollment process can be an emotional, tense and critical time for those seeking help. There are stories to tell, forms to fill out and changes to navigate in real time. Nonprofits are experts at assisting. But, sometimes, conducting participant intake can become a challenging and time-consuming process.
Many nonprofit organizations are still using paper to conduct intake, which bogs down the process and overruns storage space. Paper also leaves room for human error—mistakes can happen when manually transferring data from paper to a spreadsheet or database, making updating status changes cumbersome.
What can be done to make the enrollment and intake process as smooth as possible for everyone involved? Allowing participants to enroll online makes the process of getting help less stressful for them and frees up more time for you to connect one-on-one while serving more people.

- Reduce Participant Stress and Improve Data Quality
- Protect Participant Privacy and Keep Information Secure
- Save Time and Serve More People
