Playworks is a leading national nonprofit that leverages the power of play to improve children’s social and emotional health. Thus far in the 2017-2018 school year, Playworks has ensured over 800,000 kids in over 1,600 schools are experiencing safe and healthy play every day.
Prior to using Adaptive Insights, the company primarily used Excel to track its various revenue streams, including government and city grants, earned income, and fundraising efforts. The complexity of planning for these disparate revenue sources and the size of the organization led to a planning process that was time-consuming, labor intensive, and episodic. Additionally, the fragile Excel-based budget process made it difficult for budget owners to collaborate and ensure accuracy.
To solve these challenges, Playworks deployed Adaptive Insights to make planning and reporting for the nonprofit’s finance and non-finance users easier, more collaborative, and more insightful.
“Our mission depends on a large community of folks who support our work. The less time we spend in the office trying to understand our financials, the more time we can spend out in the community building those relationships,” said Elizabeth Cushing, President, Playworks.
