The Polis Center is the first place I think of when I’m approached by someone needing specific information within a geographic area. SAVI has the most comprehensive, up-to-date, place-based information available.

Data Integration & Analysis

When we can combine formerly disconnected data systems, new insights and analysis are possible. We have deep experience creating long-term, stable solutions to data integration and transformation. From the data architecture to the analysis and vizualization, we create meaning from the overwhelming amount of data available.

By working with SAVI, we can…identify areas that have need, connect them with the information they’re calling about or services in the community, and then start to look at what services the human service network provides for that area.

Web-Based Decision Support Tools

As one of the country’s first public online tools for community data, SAVI is a leader in creating web tools that don’t just show community-level data, but present information in context. By balancing a simple user experience and analytical power, we have created award winning web tools to support community development, non-profits, education initiatives, and more.

Having tools like SAVI, we can hold ourselves accountable to the goals we’re setting, and we can prove that we’re doing what we say we’re going to do.

Hunger is a major issue for Americans, because 1 in 6 are food insecure. A multitude of people and organizations are responding. Systems level thinking is crucial, however, if these efforts are going to meet all of the need. A data-based approach is essential, and SAVI can help organizations and communities make much better informed decisions.
