Vera Solutions was proud to host our fourth (and third virtual) Amp Impact Summit in February. Amp Impact clients, partners, and staff from around the world gathered to participate in this four-hour virtual event – collaborating on the Amp Impact roadmap, engaging in discussions on best practices, and watching demos and presentations from customers using Amp Impact to advance their mission.
A Kickoff to the Summit: 5 Years of Amp Impact
To kick off the summit, Co-Founder and CEO Zak Kaufman and Director of Business Development Katrina Seidel reflected on the past five years of Amp Impact. From launching on the Salesforce AppExchange in 2017 to being used across 150+ countries with 8 implementation partners in 2022, Amp Impact’s footprint has expanded rapidly.
Vera was inspired to bring together organizations of different shapes and sizes to connect, share common challenges, and learn from each other. Three organizations presented on how they utilize Amp Impact in different ways:
2. Amp Impact for Project Management with World Animal Protection
3. Amp Impact for Indicator Management with Itaú Social
Amp Impact Roadmap Highlights
Vera remains deeply invested in developing the product alongside our users to meet a wide range of impact measurement and portfolio management needs. In this session, Vera Solutions’ Gabi Espinoza and Zak Kaufman walked through the key highlights from the Amp Impact Gemini (Fall ’21) release and what’s on tap for upcoming releases. Participants then joined breakout groups to collaboratively brainstorm and prioritize features and enhancements for Amp Impact’s development.
