Our support team is here to help you along the way, providing personal guidance to help turn your dreams into a reality.

Automate processes and workflows

Don’t let busy work keep your people from doing the work that makes an impact. Give your team access to what they need exactly when they need it.

User-specific views, notifications, and reminders will keep your projects moving through the process smoothly and on time.

Allow managers to see where in the process their projects are so they can spend their time managing, rather than asking for updates.

Time to get rid of all those spreadsheets with conflicting data that are impossible to decipher. Knack will be your single source of truth for all the data your organization manages.

Create custom reports, dashboards, and specialized formulas to create relationships and tell a story from what used to be just a pile of numbers.

Customer Spotlight: WorldVision

Managing logistics is never easy. When you’re doing so for a sprawling nonprofit operating in more than 90 countries, even robust enterprise software may not get the job done. In Knack, World Vision found a solution that was easy to create and did only exactly what they needed it to do. They are saving time and money by providing each team with only the information they need to do their job. Real-time updates and visibility ensure everyone is operating on the same level and allows teams and individuals to better plan ahead.

"Knack fills a significant gap in our business. It allows us to capture only the data we want, and make it available to stakeholders in custom formats based on their needs."
