Vera Solutions is foundedA decade ago, Vera Solutions grew out of a health education nonprofit in South Africa, where Co-founder and CEO, Zak Kaufman, put in place one of the first Salesforce-based monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems to track the program’s outputs and outcomes for over 2 million beneficiaries. Vera Solutions was born to help more organizations leverage the power and flexibility of Salesforce to track their impact, streamline their operations, and create feedback loops that put data in the hands of staff who need it.

Begin designing Amp ImpactAfter dozens of portfolio management projects, including with Elton John AIDS Foundation, Skoll Foundation, Segal Family Foundation, Women Win, and Pact, we identified common needs in the ways organizations manage portfolios and track impact, and began designing a packaged solution on Salesforce alongside early adopters.
Amp Impact debuts at DreamforceIn 2017, we officially launched Amp Impact on the Salesforce AppExchange. What started as an indicator management and performance tracking tool to help organizations track targets and results against indicators across geographies and projects, has grown to a full-featured portfolio management and impact measurement solution.
We debuted Amp Impact alongside the Aga Khan Foundation at Dreamforce 2017 in a session called, Amplify Impact: A Live Demo on Managing Indicators to Track Performance.
Inaugural Amp Impact SummitWe hosted the first Amp Impact Summit in Amsterdam to meet with global users, share our vision for Amp Impact with partners and customers, and ideate new features and enhancements for the product’s roadmap.
We also launched three new product releases in 2019, introducing powerful functionality to create implementation plans and track activities, identify, manage, and mitigate risks, and publish data to the IATI registry.
Used across 60+ countries
Amp Impact is used in more than 60 countries to manage over $1.5 billion of programs and grants. Through three major releases in 2020, Amp Impact introduced multilingual functionality, a Grant Applications and Reviews Module, and major enhancements to Indicators, Logframes, Activities, and Submissions. Over 50 clients are using or implementing Amp Impact to centralize portfolio management and impact measurement on Salesforce, including a number of INGOs such as Oxfam International, Plan International, Norwegian Refugee Council, and War Child.
