Exploring the Impact of FormAssembly’s COVID-19 Assistance Program
Earlier in 2020, as a response to the coronavirus pandemic, FormAssembly developed our COVID-19 Assistance Program. This program was designed to provide a pro bono data collection solution for the organizations that needed it most during this challenging time.
With the rise of remote work and social distancing, convenient online forms and data collection are seemingly more useful than ever before. In this blog post, you’ll learn about some of the organizations that used our COVID-19 Assistance Program to adapt, collect critical information, and protect sensitive data throughout the ongoing health crisis.
University of Florida
The pandemic forced staff at the University of Florida in Gainesville to quickly develop new online processes in order to support their students and staff. Students were unable to attend and finish classes in person, causing a major shift in instruction and assignment procedures for both students and faculty. In addition, housing, income, and other resources were unavailable to the students and staff that relied on them.
The University of Florida signed on to FormAssembly’s COVID-19 Assistance Program so they could quickly and easily get online forms up and running to collect data for key initiatives. The team used FormAssembly to create emergency financial assistance forms and class completion forms.
Hyphen8 is a Salesforce implementation and Impact partner that is focused on designing, building, and supporting Salesforce solutions for nonprofits in the U.K. Hyphen8 uses FormAssembly for many of their customers year-round, but they were able to utilize our pro bono Compliance Cloud offering in order to provide fast, secure, and streamlined implementation processes for nonprofits that needed to respond quickly to the pandemic.
Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank
The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank experienced a surge of people in need as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Staff at the food bank already used FormAssembly for volunteer efforts and partnerships, and they were able to expand their use cases to meet the diverse needs of their community during the health crisis. The team used FormAssembly to implement an online food delivery reservation system.
FormAssembly’s web form builder and data collection platform not only streamlines processes for these organizations on a regular basis, but it also helps them navigate unpredictable and unprecedented events. We’re thankful to all of the organizations who have taken advantage of our COVID-19 Assistance Program, and we look forward to continuing to deliver the highest level of service, security, and support throughout the pandemic and beyond.
