Driven by data, guided by program and policy expertise
A dedicated partner success team, paired with data-driven outreach and prioritization, ensures your program reaches the most vulnerable populations. Our anti-poverty program experts leverage leading practices in program design and partnership with community-based organizations on the ground to support outreach.
Detailed workflows that encourage collaboration
Our workflows provide focus and cross-department collaboration unique to teams managing cash assistance programs, complete with a workflow dashboard to manage all stages of application review. In addition, we offer auto case assignment and assignment queues, as well as provide quick document previews so that staff can assess the completion and severity of a case. Case notes also track updates and communication between the staff.
Collecting only the essential data safely and securely
With Beam’s platform, you can quickly and confidently verify applicant identity and prevent fraud. The platform has met standards for SOC 1 compliance and data masking for PII. Beam collects and stores only essential data specific to a partner’s application process.
