What's New with Compass® Reports?


Human services agencies today are stretched for time and resources in almost every capacity. To really maximize efficiency, you need data. You need to be able to manage your workers’ caseloads, see how the tools you provide them are being used, and understand what services your community utilizes most.

Good news: you can now get the data you need through Compass® Reports for Compass® Pilot and Compass® CoPilot, which has recently been expanded to include over 40 reports.

Download the written case study and check out the video series to hear firsthand reactions from Lenoir County’s child support supervisors and caseworkers.
