Collaborate for State CAC Networks
Collaborate for Networks is tailor made for groups that need to communicate and securely share sensitive data between other organizations that use Collaborate. Statewide implementations for Children’s Advocacy Networks benefit from being able to track a transient Client base across two or more organizations, securely, and member Centers benefit by having immediate access to historical information from partner agencies.
Network Ninja has implemented Collaborate in multiple statewide CAC networks that include anywhere from several dozen individual CACs to over 70 CACs.
