OR Services Web Application

Open Source Social Services Directory Software Designed for Interoperability and Ease of Use

ORServices is an open source, smartphone-friendly directory application that enables you to collect, verify, organize and share information about social services in your community with your stakeholders, beneficiaries, partner organizations and more.

Unlike other software products that place data into a silo, ORServices was designed from the ground up using open source components and Open Referral data formats, making data sharing and data interoperability as easy as possible to achieve.

As a nonprofit software project, ORServices has also been designed to be an easy to deploy, modify and maintain alternative to expensive proprietary service directories built by for-profit companies for 2-1-1 systems in the USA.

ORServices features include:

  • Web and mobile-friendly, geo-aware directory software 
  • Human Service Data Standard (HSDS) compliant data model
  • Manage any facet of HSDS data within the app
  • Create and manage users, and assign them the ability to manage contact, service, location and organization information on an organization by organization basis
  • Content management system for customizing home and about pages, headers and footers, site colors, icons, images and logos.
  • Location-aware search and filtering
  • Manage multiple service taxonomies
  • Download PDFs and CSVs of individual and filtered lists of services and organizations.
  • Track and manage user data entry sessions
  • Import data from Airtable, HSDS CSVs, HSDS Zip and HSDS Zip API and export data as HSDS CSV, HSDS Zip and HSDS Zip API
  • Integration with Google Translate to offer contents in dozens of different languages.
  • Integrate with Google Analytics for tracking user flows, usage statistics and more

You can use ORServices to build and manage your service directory data, or you can manage your data using our Airtable Template and sync it to display automatically via ORServices.

You can deploy ORServices yourself using our instructions on Github, or you can hire us to build and manage a solution for your unique needs.
