Innovative Mentoring Software Overview

What is Innovative Mentoring Software?

Innovative Mentoring Software is a business management solution aimed at youth mentoring programs, with the tools for monitoring contacts, mentors, and mentees. With features including a self-service mentor portal, case notes, mentor applications, matching assistance, screening processes, custom reporting, time tracking, automatic reminders, and communications management, Innovative Mentoring Software aims to streamline and simplify the day-to-day tasks of youth mentoring businesses for both staff and mentors.

Utilizing the matching assistance tools, users can view and match potential mentees or mentors based on similarities such as shared interests, characteristics, location, gender, and age, and can create 1-on-1 or group matches based on this criteria. Innovative Mentoring Software can also help businesses to source and recruit new mentors with tools such as recruitment process workflows, mass emails, applications upload, mentor screening, background checks, and mentor training programs with time tracking and activity logging.

The online mentor portal aims to save on paperwork and time by providing mentors with a self-service solution to send messages to mentees, carry out surveys, send invitations, and track and document all meetings. Each meeting can be supported with evidence such as date, length of time, case notes, activity logs, and more, meaning custom reports can be automatically generated to assess the effectiveness of initiatives and programs.

The IDEAL Partner in Mentoring Software!

The team at Innovative Mentoring was a true partner. From the very first contact, Innovative Mentoring listened to our needs, was very responsive to customize the program to support us and throughout the experience has provided exceptional customer experience. We love working with the Innovative Mentoring team!

Comprehensive mentoring program software with great search tools!

We have been using IMS since July of this year and it's been a great comprehensive tool to help us consolidate a lot of the information that we track and use regularly. The powerful search tool has been extremely valuable for us. We love that surveys are integrated into IMS, too. Whenever there's any issue with any function of IMS or we've needed to make a change, both the customer support and development teams are extremely responsive, friendly, and helpful. The few minor hiccups we've had have been addressed quickly and thoroughly. IMS is built for mentoring programs, has everything we need, and on top of that, has been a great team to work with!

All the Support our Mentoring Efforts Needed!

I am very analytical and seek to know the limits of any database I use. Innoative Mentoring Software is intuitive and simple in every way: login (yes, I've found databases that manage to make that difficult... ahem... Blackbaud... ahem...), data entry, search, report, communication... you name it. Out of the box, there is a great depth of data that can be recorded, and it is clearly created with mentoring in mind. However, the most impressive feature is the team of staff who gets to know your needs, proactively seeks creative solutions, quickly resolves issues, and continuously seeks improvement. They make custom solutions seem standard. Their staff clearly works together and I am thrilled anytime I see an update!

What's more, this crew knows their strengths (databases) and partners with others for additional features. For example, they work with SurveyGizmo (the best survey software anywhere) to integrate phenomenal survey functionality for all their forms. The same goes for communication, whether by mass email or text.

Ask for a demo, get to know their team, and make the right decision by working with Innovative Mentoring Software.

We love working with the Innovative Mentoring team!

Pros

Innovative Mentoring was the perfect choice for our small non-profit start-up experience. The software was customizable, even with our lean budget. We found the software easy to use and it met our needs perfectly. Changes were easy to make as we refined our program needs.

Cons

Our experience was wonderful and I don't have any 'least' comments to add.

Pros

The search function, integrated surveys with Survey Gizmo, mentor application process, ease of creating relationships.

Cons

Reporting has been a little more convoluted than we initially realized, with data exports generally giving us much more information than we need and then needing to be pared down. Some search functions are a little buggy with regard to dates and time zones. Being unable to remove our own options from drop down menus is a drawback, but IMS staff take care of this quickly.

Working with Innovative both the staff and the software has been an amazing experience. The Innovative team is so helpful and responsive.

Pros

I love the ease of use for the end user. Because Innovative has records for both the mentor and mentee and then "matches" them, users can easily see all the data they need, both for the mentor and mentee including how many hours the pair have met, send emails or texts to mentors and so much more!

Cons

Innovative hasn't designed very many profiles for users. I'm also hoping they develop a report writer.
