Blackbaud is known for their applications that focus on financial and philanthropical endeavors. MicroEdge, one of Blackbaud’s products, recently unveiled its outcomes solution that helps funders and nonprofits move from traditional philanthropy to social investing. The Globe Newswire brought this news to our attention in their article, “Blackbaud’s MicroEdge Business Unveils Outcomes Solution for the Giving Community at MESC@bbcon.”

With the shift to social investing, there is heightened demand for measuring funding outcomes and impact. Blackbaud’s outcomes solution is the first platform that brings together funders and nonprofits under one umbrella for improved collaboration and mission alignment. In addition, the solution offers a first-of-its-kind outcomes measurement taxonomy that will continue to grow and evolve with use, getting smarter with each user interaction and creating a living record of social impact.

All records management systems need a system of indexing to create findability. We know that indexing against a strong, standards-based taxonomy can ensure comprehensive search results. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ISO/ANSI/NISO compliant taxonomies to produce comprehensive results.
