Regions & Cities
As well as our core user group who use Refernet in towns and Cities, we now have groups of Citizens Advice using Refernet to join referral activity together across whole boroughs and counties. They are running a single Refernet system to give them connectivity, flexibility and cost savings within their regions, making Refernet cheaper (per CA) with system coverage across larger populations (see pricing options).
We now have Greater Manchester, West Lancashire, and Cumbria using this model, with several more large regions on the way.
Refernet also caters for organisations who need to create a national network. Additional functionality allows for zoning where required, so that agencies can be grouped. Reporting by zone and the ability to make agencies only visible within certain zones is also possible, and even on an agency by agency basis.
Keep it simple
Refernet’s system is built & maintained to the highest standards for data encryption, storage and password generation.
Refernet is easy-to-use and integrate into your business. It’s a dedicated system that links advice providers & referral agencies together in a web-based community.
Refernet delivers unlimited referrals between organisations, networks & allows administrators to complete the referral process with a fully auditable record of conclusion types.
Refernet was created in conjunction with well known referral advice and local community service professionals, to deliver measured & conclusive referrals.
‘Refernet allows us to provide a streamlined referral service for our clients and the reporting mechanisms are ideal for our work with funders’
