SA M&E – Can you tell me: 1.What services you gave to your clients in Jan? 2.How many clients have you served since the beginning of the year? 3.What counselling topics are spoken about most by your clients? 4.What changes are you producing in our clients? 5.What did our donors get for their money? 6.Does your M&E results influence your staff training decisions?
SA M&E – typical systems: None at all Loose papers Hard copy books Excel spreadsheets Custom built in house systems – Difficult to change South African Charities do not benefit from the information age yet!
SA M&E : Results : we spend ages trying to answer basic questions we duplicate services that others are already doing = waste money & resources we cannot quantify the difference that we make or if we do, it takes us a very LONG ti`me. Our clients suffer unnecessarily Why should donors support us?
What is ? DELSTAT stands for Delivery Statistics Database DELSTAT is a record keeping system that U-turn developed since 2008 on the Salesforce CRM platform Salesforce.com = The world’s leader in customer relationship management (CRM) & cloud computing In short: DELSTAT is an online database that allows users to capture their Service delivery statistics

A word about costs: Years of development costs If you don’t pay for it you don’t appreciate it Why sell it? Bigger orgs are more complex We want to help smaller organizations Why annual license fees? So that we can continue to maintain and develop it further. Why different prices for different size orgs? U-turn rates vs Commercial rates? Commercial rates = R6000 p day for consulting R400 000+ dev quote
