Who is SCP for?

SCP is for organisations that have significant number of their people in the community (Staff, Volunteers, Supporters, etc). This Smartphone App was designed to empower people within the community through secure critical information, support links, messaging and workflows.

Use cases (Persona) include:

  • Reduce churn amongst community-based part-time employees
  • Engaging with volunteers supporting your organisation
  • Allow Iwi koumatua  and supporters to be advocates for your members
  • Reach out to interest groups in the community looking for support 
  • Carry out duty of care for staff working remotely in times of BCP or Pandemic

 SCP can help your organisation face the common key challenges below:

  • High levels of churn amongst volunteer communities create organisation burden on recruitment, training costs and communication costs 
  • Engagement with communities often feels one way – organisation to community member 
  • Critical information or appointments are lost or missed or “not read” 
  • Community members feel alone or lost and unsure how or who to engage with 
  • Organisations struggle to get feedback from members 
  • Social media platforms are too easy for members to opt-out, or ignore 
  • High levels of non-compliance to formal instructions and mandatory events
