“In these challenging economic times, performance management has never been more critical, and we wanted to provide a way for all direct service workers to have access to the tools that will make them highly effective,” said Steve Butz.

Social Solutions, the leading provider of performance management software for human and social services, today announced it will be providing nonprofits with a free version of it Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) software with ETO-1. The software is designed to help nonprofit staff excel at managing their workloads, demonstrating effectiveness and enhancing overall performance without requiring any financial investment.
As a former social services worker who developed ETO software to manage his own performance at the Living Classrooms Foundation, Steve Butz, executive chairman and founder, Social Solutions, decided to offer Social Solution’s ETO software for free to all social services workers who require the tools needed to be a high performer.
“In these challenging economic times, performance management has never been more critical, and we wanted to provide a way for all direct service workers to have access to the tools that will make them highly effective,” said Steve Butz. “I hope that by offering a free version of our ETO software, we can level the playing field and make virtually all human service professionals ‘superstars’ in their own right.”
It can be very difficult for nonprofits to effectively manage performance because they are lacking the right tools, training and knowledge to track outcomes, measure performance and enhance their programs based on these efforts. With ETO-1, front-line staff can stay focused on their mission by easily managing their workload through features like to-do lists and dashboards, while at the same time demonstrating the positive difference they are making in people’s lives.
The launch of ETO-1 also reinforces Butz’s passion for rewarding top performing human service professionals with his Superstar Foundation, which recently bestowed $20,000 in grants to four outstanding human service professionals who have become local heroes in their community by working tirelessly to help others.
ETO-1 is pre-configured and available to a single user for tracking of his/her own work with program participants. An ETO-1 user account comes with a user guide and access to support. For more information and to sign up for an ETO-1 account, click here.
