Working in an NGO (Non-Government Organization) can require a lot of effort. Beyond addressing important sectoral issues, one has to hurdle dealing with limited resources, allocating budget, and managing manpower. At the end of the day, the fulfillment of having made an impact in uplifting human lives is a reward in itself.
Managing an NGO need not take a lot of one’s time. Using the native apps of G Suite can help with communication (Gmail), budget planning (Google Sheet), and creating technical documents (Google Doc). A workflow app based on G Suite would be a perfect addition to an NGO worker’s tools. Here’s how Form Workflow Plus can help with NGO work:
Setup approval process in minutes
Fresh from college, Andrew joined an NGO working with food security in Southeast Asia. After stumbling upon Form Workflow Plus on the G Suite Marketplace, he was able to set up a procurement workflow in minutes. The add-on worked seamlessly with their organization’s G Suite apps. The feature he liked most is the flexibility of the add-on to accommodate as many reviewers as his workflow requires.
Notes feature for approved requests
Andrew soon learned that he can activate a Notes feature on Form Workflow Plus. This came in handy for attaching Invoice Numbers as well as Purchase Order Numbers for approved requests. Keeping tabs on the team’s procurement workflow has never been easier.

Conditional approvals for automatic request routing
Sabine is part of an NGO seeking to improve child development in remote South American villages. Given the need for transportation, she manages car repair requests as approved by their regional office. This helps efficiently schedule mechanic visits. For this, she used Form Workflow Plus to automatically route requests depending on the repair type. Having automated the approval process allowed Sabine to focus more on her organization’s advocacies.
Form Workflow Plus offers discounted pricing for non-profits
Chris was happy to learn that Form Workflow Plus offers 40% discount for non-profits. He works as the IT Coordinator for an NGO in the education sector. The lower subscription fee allowed them to allocate budget for teaching materials instead.
