Sinzer software becomes first tool to be reviewed against Social Value Principles
Sinzer, a software tool for managing social impact, has become the first software tool to be reviewed in line with the Principles of Social Value (pdf).
This assessment, conducted by Social Value UK, confirmed that Sinzer is capable of collecting and processing the information required to produce a report conforming to Social Value International’s Principles (it should be noted that the actual adherence to the SVI principles of a specific report relying on [Sinzer’s] software system would require separate, additional assurance).
As an organisation, the team behind Sinzer have provided solutions and knowledge for managing social impact since 2008, and their first software tool, Social E-valuator, produced over 1,800 SROI reports.
Sinzer itself was launched in September 2014 and is available in English, Dutch, Arabic, Hebrew, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Finnish and German (next month). It supports a range of standard frameworks, including SROI, and has over 400 users internationally.
Sinzer has also joined Social Value International as an organisational member, and has become the first software provider to have an official license with the Global Value Exchange, Social Value UK’s free online database of outcomes, indicators and valuations. The license allows project users of Sinzer to access information stored on GVE and integrate it into their own projects.
Marlon van Dijk, Managing Director of Sinzer, says “It’s our mission to enable our clients to manage and maximize their social impact in a time and cost efficient way. We hope to further strengthen our partnership with GVE and Social Value International to gain more international exposure of the importance of measuring and managing social value.”
