Rise is a nonprofit organization which supports people who have disabilities and other barriers to employment and housing in attaining their vocational achievement, self-sufficiency, and belonging in their communities. Rise believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to contribute to the community and experience the highest degree of self-sufficiency possible.
There is a lot of diversity and change among programs, making Rise’s information needs complex. Rise required integration of core data across software applications including the traditional administrative functionality (Finance and Accounting, HR, Payroll) plus functions such as Billing, Job Costing, Purchasing, Inventory Management, Funding, and Case Management. The breadth of variety in Programs drove the demand for truly integrated information management, tracking, and reporting.
Many of Rise’s current enterprise systems were internally developed over several years in D-Base, and were not viable for further long term use and support. Rise was using a portion of Vertex for Case Management, and Traverse for accounting, and were seeking an updated, integrated architecture that is viable now and into the future.
