Our story

Upshot is a performance management software solution developed in 2009 by the Football Foundation, UK's largest sports charity. The Football Foundation needed to demonstrate the impact of its funding, and Upshot enabled them to measure outcomes quickly and easily. Previously it was very time consuming and difficult to produce quantitative or qualitative data.

Inspiration for development

To develop Upshot further, inspiration was taken from modern applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Amazon, where the public willingly enter data because it benefits them. These applications are accessible using mobile phones, tablets and computers and Upshot needed the same ease of use.

Upshot is unique

Upshot was launched in March 2012 as a performance management software solution for public and not-for-profit organisations like the Football Foundation.

Upshot can provide funders and deliverers with a clear picture of what’s going on and it combines evidence across projects, so everyone involved can analyse the bigger picture.

Now, more than 850 public and not-for-profit organisations are using Upshot to manage, monitor and evidence their community projects.
