Collaborate for statewide CAC networks

Unlike traditional case management platforms, Collaborate’s smart data model supports CACs’ complex relationships requirements, automatically.

This sort of sophisticated data integrity - unique to Collaborate - means your data can be accurately managed, mined to extract truly meaningful insights, and reported on.

Tailored Case Management Software, Built for CACs

Collaborate was designed to improve accuracy and save time for CAC staff, so you can minimize “deskwork” and concentrate on helping Clients. Each organization does things a bit differently, so the software is customized to match your unique workflows.

Streamlined, Accurate Data Management

You’ll leverage Network Ninja’s decades of experience, along with Collaborate’s intuitive software design, to help maximize efficiency and accuracy for your data management processes.

Intelligent Conflict Checks help prevent duplicate entries, using exclusive technology to find “sounds-like” matches - even when names are misspelled. Data entry for CACs has never been quicker or more accurate than in Collaborate.

“Collaborate has simplified our work, made our team more efficient and improved our process and program outcomes.”

Funder-Focused Reports

Collaborate includes the most popular CAC funder Reports, like NCA, VOCA, United Way, VAWA, and PSSF. Ad-hoc Reports are just a few clicks away, and saved Reports can be shared with everyone in your network.

The new Standard VOCA Report was designed to take the stress out of reporting season.

“I am very pleased with Collaborate’s VOCA Report and appreciate that I can rely more on the ‘one click’ function...I appreciate the efforts of Collaborate/Network Ninja in helping to make the reporting process more manageable!”

Tight Security for HIPAA Compliance

Collaborate was developed with HIPAA compliance in mind. Roles & Permissions allow you to restrict access to PHI only to users that need it, while Multi-Factor Authentication adds an additional layer of security.

Combined with firewalls, vulnerability testing, automated identification and response to security events, and encryption everywhere, Collaborate works overtime to help keep your data secure.

HIPAA Primer for CACs: It’s Not Spelled Like HIPPO

Network Ninja and Collaborate created a presentation called “It’s Not Spelled like HIPPO,” which is a practical and social-worker friendly HIPAA primer for CACs.

Trusted by CSEC Programs, Too

Collaborate is used by hundreds of Commercial Sexual Explotation of Children (CSEC) advocates to coordinate over 6,700 units of service for more than 500 affected youth each year.
“Because CSEC cases are so much more complex than traditional child sexual abuse cases, it really requires a more collective approach. Collaborate helps us connect several agencies together to understand the client’s needs and address them.”

Easy to Use for Your Entire Team

Collaborate is used by thousands of social workers and other very vocal specialists that aren’t traditionally “enthusiastic about technology” - they just need it to work - so its success depends on being user friendly. The combination of intuitive design and tailored functionality makes the software simple and effective.

“With customized forms, each discipline is able to document their work easily and accurately, and sharing and tracking information is super easy!”
