ImpactTrackerThe world's leading impact engine
ImpactTracker provides a world-leading, unified interface for capturing, analysing, understanding and reporting your social, economic, environmental and cultural impact
A Product Evolved to Help You Collect, Manage, Verify and Report on Impact Data
Understanding impact is tricky enough – but having to go through the laborious process of gathering evidence, managing and verifying your data, and then demonstrating this in any number of formats can be several steps too far.
Fortunately, ImpactTracker was built with these challenges in mind, and evolved to make the user experience of managing impact data and evidence as streamlined as possible.
Taking the burden out of showing the impact that matters to you is a really important step on your journey to impact enlightenment.

Case Study: Brunel University London
Brunel University London uses ImpactTracker to centralise how it captures impact evidence, storing 500+ different items of “social, cultural, environmental and economic research impact evidence… over many years, across multiple interlinked projects [which adds] complexity and the need for timely intervention” and supporting 59 Impact Case Studies that were submitted to the 2021 edition of the Research Excellence Framework (REF).
Steps to Success with ImpactTracker
Plan and Prepare Properly
Whether you’re starting from scratch with an impact project, or importing your existing work, use ImpactTracker’s project wizard to quickly set up the basics – and map the impact you want to track onto our set of 2500+ indicators. The wizard also helps identify the appropriate UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that you want to track against.
Begin capturing your data and evidence
Once your project is set up, you and your colleagues can immediately begin capturing data on the metrics that matter to you. Meanwhile the EvidenceVault module provides you with the tools to rapidly capture proof as you go, storing this into a central secure repository and associating it to appropriate projects in seconds, so it can be called upon by your team when needed.
Export and Report
Depending on your sector and role, you will be required to produce a variety of impact and sustainability reports, as well as submitting data to a wide range of portals for frameworks, regulations and rankings. With all your data and evidence stored centrally, ImpactTracker simplifies this process, enabling you to select and quickly export into the right format.

Customers Feeling the Buzz
ImpactTracker is one of a kind.
It is a key tool to help you monitor impact over a long period of time. Vertigo Ventures (hivve) are also a great company to work with.
Impact has taken on increasing importance during my time at the University. Initially, the focus was one of raising awareness and basic impact literacy across a broad base of academic and support colleagues. Central to this was encouraging members of staff to engage with the ImpactTracker and use it as part of their everyday activities.
VV’s ImpactTracker platform has allowed me to save vital evidence to clearly demonstrate the impact of the project, and, it has also helped me to map out and assess the nature of that impact in terms of stakeholders. Had it not been available to me when the project began, I doubt I would be in such a strong position now.
