Trailblazing impact software

ImpactTracker pioneered the cloud-based model for impact tracking software in 2014, and has since continued to be the premium product worldwide for managing impact requirements in a single, centralised environment. Individuals and organisations worldwide use the software to capture, measure, demonstrate the impact of their work – and to embed impact as a cornerstone of their sustainability culture.

Tracker’s proprietary taxonomy, which enables research impact projects and activities to be easily categorised and related to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), played a key role in the establishment of the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings in 2018, and continues to support institutions wishing to improve their rankings today. In 2021 public engagement fields were introduced to increase the breadth of activities supported.

ImpactTracker scales with your own sustainability and impact requirements – start with a trial and then continue to grow your licence count to ensure you always have the support you need. Tracker runs on resilient global infrastructure and enables you to optimise your impact regardless of geographic distribution.

Innovation in Impact

Unique Taxonomy

Tracker is based on unique taxonomy that allows users around the world to easily map their impact onto the UN’s SDGs and improve their progress towards the 2030 target

Evidence Vault

Tracker allows you to collect all your evidence for your impact projects as you go – pull in external feeds, web clippings, document uploads and associate these with relevant activities

Report Automation

Through the portal you can easily generate submissions from your projects, along with evidence, and generate these in a format ready for frameworks such as national assessments and Impact Rankings

Case Study Focus

The Impact Ecosystem

Impact Ecosystem

End-to-end impact enablement

ImpactTracker is part of the Vertigo Ventures impact ecosystem, a family of solutions that enables individuals and organisations to maximise their impact.

Your impact journey with VV starts through gaining expertise and online CPD accreditations through our ImpactAcademy eLearning programme, then continues through ImpactTracker as you begin to capture, report on and demonstrate your impact. Because Tracker integrates with a variety of systems, such as Symplectic and Pure, it is easy to align all of your sources and activities with the actual impact of your projects. The system makes sustainability reporting easy.

As you continue to improve your impact, you will next start collaborating on projects internationally, working across different sectors (such as academia and industry) to speed up progress towards the UN’s SDG target. Finally, live performance comparisons will allow you to benchmark your progress.
