Maplytics – profiting at Life with Dedication to a good cause
Not every organization aims at financial profits some win at aiding good causes
Maplytics, the preferred 5-star rated app of Microsoft AppSource is an all-inclusive package that unleashes locational intelligence and helps businesses flourish strategically within Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM. The features aid organizations with visualizing client records, finding records within proximity, scheduling appointments in advance, managing sales territories, and so on. These unique functions of the geo-mapping app can be applied to aid several non-profit organizations that work for the betterment and upliftment of society.
A nonprofit organization is a business that has been granted tax-exempt status because it furthers a social cause and provides a public benefit. It is an entity designed to better its community by facilitating donations and grants into programs. Non-profits serve society by offering services, distributing goods, and giving time. Some non-profits work exclusively for the cause of downtrodden, disease-stricken patients, some work for child and women welfare, while some exclusively support the cause of homeless animals.
Maplytics also offers its application and services for organizations that continuously contribute toward societal upliftment in multiple forms.
Challenges Faced by NPOs
Lack of funding, donations, and volunteers are not the only challenges often faced by non-profit organizations. At times the organizations have it all in plenty but are still lost due to hindrances in daily operations and process flow, permissions, or the lack of them.
Visits to Unknown Client Locations
The places where help is required are new in many situations. The locations may not be always available, known, or familiar
The volunteers working on-field may not be aware of the exact locations and paths to the old age homes, orphanages, second homes, pet shelters, houses for homeless animals, broken homes, etc.
Finding ways to meet the beings in need is also difficult for the firefighter, social workers, primary caregivers, officials, vets, animal rescuers, animal lovers, and volunteers in case of emergencies
In the case of affected animals, the survivors cannot dictate their addresses or call emergency numbers, thus, finding their locations becomes instinctive
Finding easy travel routes to reach out
The field agents and volunteers also need to travel to far-off places to offer help and cure or relocate the needy in case of emergencies
They also need to be sure of the availability of transport to those regions, or possible ways to reach inaccessible regions
Organized and planned schedules to accommodate ad-hoc situations
The dedicated field reps and volunteers are often expected to rush to an area of requirement on an impromptu basis.
There are no practices to recognize troubled areas beforehand and apply pre-planned services in order to be aware or prepared for the requirement
Some volunteers and workers are more sensitive toward and trained in handling animals, thus, scheduling them for an animal emergency seems legit.
Being alert in high-risk areas
Since the process flow fails to accommodate pre-planned forces of action, the regions and situations emitting risks in advance are left neglected.
Popular Poaching and shooting regions get forgotten when the workforce is occupied in ad hoc cases
Communicating effortlessly with the other stakeholders
In farfetched regions on the outskirts or emergency-stricken regions, communication finds a lull, hence sending the right help there gets difficult
Having the right mode of communication, connection, and documentation aids the cause
Communicating with tip-givers or information providers become vital in case of violence against animals
