What is Upshot
Upshot helps organisations, who make a difference, become more insight-led. Using a MEL (Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning) approach, they provide an easy-to-use online system for funders and delivers of all sizes to monitor, evaluate and learn from their data. Today, more than 1,400 organisations across a wide range of sectors and countries are using Upshot.

Why Barnet Together believe in Upshot
Barnet Together spent a lot of time looking at Upshot and similar M&E systems before choosing which they felt was best placed to be of benefit to the members. We found Upshot to be easy to use, easy to capture information, easy to provide really effective reporting, all at a very reasonable price.
For organisations it can be used simply as a glorified register & to store participant details (rather than spreadsheets and lots of bits of paper). Or depending on the requirements can easily be used to help monitor projects against outcomes &/or track a participants journey of development. The power of the tool is great and we are adamant it will save organisation so much time when writing end of project reports. The tool to map an individual’s journey of development is also really exciting.
From the Barnet Together point of view, the system allows us to collate anonymous top line data which will allow us to collate a picture of all the great work going on across the borough, which will be passed back to members to aid with funding bids and to help show your impact as part of the wider borough. Everything in the system is GDPR compliant.
The level of support in the set up process along with ongoing support at the end of phone will help members feel confident in using the tool.
