We do charge a minimal fee for using IMPACT. This is partly to cover the costs of development and running IMPACT at a larger scale, and also to cover the support and training costs that we incur.

1-5 users: £35 per month per user
6-10 users: £40 per month per user
11-25 users: £45 per month per user

We have made IMPACT as simple and straightforward to implement as possible. Because it’s an online system, your group could be up and running with IMPACT in a matter of days, but this depends on whether we need to transfer data from an existing system.  We also need to look at your infrastructure and reporting requirements so a simple system could be up and running very quickly, but a large scale system would take longer to implement.

We would provide full training to enable your users to get fully up to speed as soon as possible.

IMPACT provides datasets and reports that can be exported into Excel.

Yes, to meet individual needs. For example, you may need a unique reference field or to include a specific outcome into the framework.

Any internet enabled device can access IMPACT, but please be aware of the screen size as a lot of information is held within the system.
