Purpose and goal

The goal of the project was a stable, needs based and user-friendly platform that connects to the Global goals and their targets. Target group input meant that development focused on ease of use, intuitive interface and high-quality analysis of Swedish/English texts. When the beta testers communicated that the solution met their needs, the goal and the purpose: To develop an easy to use tool to connect the core business to the global goals and thus combine social, environmental and economic results, was achieved.

Expected results and effects

The platform is currently used to understand the goals and for organisations to analyse their sustainability and opportunities. It meets communication needs. The beta gives organisations tools to work with the goals. To effectively measure impact, Novospection must how. Consequently, the goal during implementation will be that >30% of users open an account. This will allow them to track and communicate their contribution and us to aggregate the total effects. Indirectly the platform contributes through the basic search function, as more can go from word to deed.

Planned approach and implementation

The project had two phases: concept development and implementation. Technical development was carried out together with Parlametric. To guarantee a needs-based and user-friendly platform beta testing and disseminating was key. More than 100 people provided input on functionality, user interface and impact potential before beta testing. After beta testing the target group validated that the solution met needs and expectations and could be launched.
