SCORE is an organization backed by the Small Business Administration to advise small businesses, non-profits and startups in how to grow their business. The site performs many of the management functions previously involving manual labor, such as workshop management, scheduling and tracking of clients, marketing and social networking, membership management, recruiting, event management, document management, success metrics, and internal project collaboration. As a volunteer organization, the savings in time and errors of communication and transcription have allowed them to devote more time to their core mission of helping clients.
