Online Collaboration Platform for WA NFPs
Thursday, 22nd May 2014 at 10:18 am

The Western Australian Council of Social Service has launched a new online collaborative platform set to change the way the community services sector works together, and collaborates with government and corporate partners.

The online platform called DropIN, is supported by a Social Innovation Grant, and is free for all community sector based networks in Western Australia to join.

“DropIN was developed to enable people to collaborate and help reduce duplication and waste through providing a central meeting platform for networks,” WACOSS CEO Irina Cattalini said.

“It has the advantage of allowing both open and closed membership groups to operate as well as an open forum for people to pitch ideas, seek support and network.

“With increasing pressures on community services to tackle more complex social problems, to respond to increasing demand for support and to do more with less, DropIN is set to play an important role in this future.

“DropIN is the first platform of its type to be piloted in Western Australia – developed by the community services sector, for the sector.

“DropIN will provide a central repository for meeting documents, areas where individuals can pitch ideas and seek support, and opportunities for working collaboratively on projects and documents.”

A number of organisations and groups have piloted DropIN from February 2014 – providing positive feedback of the usefulness of this collaborative online tool.
