Social Service Organizations Harness Their Own Big Data

This month, Mobilize released their Enterprise tool, a dynamic cloud-based product that enables multi-tiered organizations to create centralized, unified data intake and client communication processes. With food bank partners such as the Food Bank Council of Michigan at the forefront of development, we understand social service organizations’ strategy to continually make services more accessible to their clients and make data more accessible to their teams.


The Food Bank Council of Michigan is a unique organization composed of member regional food banks and their subsidiaries – each with innovative strategies to respond to the specific needs of their community. With the knowledge that data drives impact, they saw an opportunity to create a centralized data system while securing the autonomy of their partners’ workflows.


By creating a partnership with Mobilize, the Food Bank Council of Michigan’s vision to unify data became possible. Now, each partner organization can handle client intake and other data gathering processes through digital forms sent straight to the person’s phone via text, making intake and distribution safer and more efficient than ever. This automated process replacing manual intake processes, data is centralized and updated in real-time. Using this system, the Food Bank Council of Michigan can view the impact of the organization and any partners and pantries at any moment.
