Whether you want to improve your stakeholder relationships, stay on top of issues or lower your project risks, utilizing Stakeholder Relationship Management (SRM) software to take your stakeholder management process to the next level is an excellent choice, especially if you want to streamline and simplify your efforts. But with many SRM options on the market today, it can be overwhelming to choose the best option for your organization.
To help your research, in today’s blog, we’re sharing four ways our SRM, Jambo, makes your stakeholder management efforts faster and easier.
1. Jambo's stakeholder-focused workflows are specifically designed to manage your stakeholder information
With Jambo’s stakeholder-focused workflows, our software has been specifically designed for managing stakeholder information so that you can gain richer insights and report on your data faster and easier.
While many software providers talk about their workflows, having stakeholder-focused workflows means the software you’re using has been intentionally designed to meet your stakeholder management needs and challenges.
With an SRM like Jambo, you can be confident that you're using the right software for the task at hand, so you don’t have to worry about making do with a subpar option or trying to customize something that’s not suited to your needs.
Traceability - everything connects in Jambo, so you can understand the full story
Part of what makes Jambo’s workflows so efficient is how all your inputted stakeholder information connects together, helping you understand your stakeholders and projects more efficiently. This connectivity is called traceability (i.e., the ability for the information to connect to tell you the full story or gain the big picture).
An example of how traceability works in Jambo is in our stakeholder profiles. By clicking into a stakeholder profile in Jambo, you can easily access all the previous engagement information, such as communications, issues, or commitments associated with that stakeholder.
But this capability is not limited just to the profiles, as traceability works throughout the entire system, helping you find the information you need and then leading you to other related information with Jambo’s suggestions and easy platform navigation.
With this ability, you can quickly and easily prepare for stakeholder meetings or decide on your next logical stakeholder engagement step for better project outcomes.

2. Jambo's dashboard overview helps you and your team stay updated at a moment's notice
In stakeholder management, it’s common to deal with a lot of stakeholder information and many different tasks, so you and your team will benefit from having a dashboard overview to help you make sense of your data at a moment’s notice.
The Jambo dashboard helps users stay updated on stakeholder project highlights
Jambo’s dashboard overview gives you a snapshot of some of your vital stakeholder data when you log into your account, showing you key updates on your project. This snapshot includes the issue’s materiality matrix and the progress of issues (e.g., open vs. closed issues). You can also see your specific tasks for whatever project you’re on and any recent changes your team has made to help you understand what they’re currently working on for more transparency and better team collaboration.
Additionally, with Jambo’s dashboard, you can view key documentation, the geospatial project overview map and gain valuable stakeholder insights to understand how many stakeholders you’re engaging with, how (and where) you and your team have been engaging with them.
With all of this information at your fingertips, you’re better able to use your data to make strategic stakeholder management decisions quickly and easily.
3. Jambo keeps the stakeholder data you and your team collect in one organized, accessible and secure space
In order to gain the most value from your stakeholder information, it needs to be organized and understandable. You can’t rely on your information if you can’t find it or if it’s not accessible to you and your team.
Spreadsheets are not the best option for managing stakeholder engagement projects
Most organizations are still trying to make spreadsheets work for their stakeholder management, but trying to make sense of multiple spreadsheets with various input processes can be frustrating and time-consuming. In addition, when you’re unsure of where your information is or if you even have access to it all, it’s impossible to make the best decisions for your stakeholder engagement plan. You and your team end up wasting valuable time searching for your information in these spreadsheets, and this issue snowballs as you continue to collect more data.

4. Jambo offers valuable reporting options to meet a variety of needs
