InFlow Social Network Analysis Software for Business, Communities and Government

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is an interactive model of your organization, community, or industry worth?

InFlow 3.1 performs network analysis AND network visualization in one integrated product — no passing files back and forth between different programs like other tools. What is mapped in one window is measured in the other window — what you see, is what you measure. InFlow excels at what-if analysis — change the network, get new metrics — just 2 clicks of the mouse. InFlow is designed to work with Microsoft Office and the WWW. You do not need to be an expert in statistics to use InFlow.

InFlow is the only popular SNA/ONA software that has available training and personal mentoring through your first project(s). Experienced consultants teach you both the methodology and practice of SNA/ONA, along with how to use the software.

Contact us for more information on purchasing InFlow and training on how to do social & organizational network analysis.

InFlow provides easy access to the most popular network metrics. With visualization and metrics in one interactive interface, almost unlimited what-if scenarios are possible.

  • Network Centrality / Centralization
  • Small-World Networks
  • Cluster Analysis
  • Network Density
  • Prestige / Influence
  • Structural Equivalence
  • Network Neighborhood
  • External / Internal Ratio
  • Weighted Average Path Length
  • Shortest Paths & Path Distribution

Gerry Falkowski, a former IBM consultant, has been using InFlow since 1993. He is elated with the ability to easily analyze an organization and quickly move network maps and metrics into his presentations and reports.

“InFlow is very user friendly allowing us to quickly show clients aspects of their organization
that are usually invisible. We can map and measure teamwork, communication, information flow,
and knowledge sharing/re-use. We show the client both gaps and effective connections — it is easy
to see where we need to focus our attention. The ability to do what-if scenarios of organizational change is priceless. I can’t see managing today’s organizations without this knowledge!”

An economic development professional said this about 1/3 of the way into her InFlow training. She had learned a few other SNA applications before switching to InFlow based upon a recommendation from a Foundation she was working with.

“Wow, this is so easy!”

The Corporate Leadership Council became enthralled with Organizational Network Mapping in the mid 1990s.
They gave it an “A” in their “Managing Core Competencies of the Organization” study.

“The most accurate, systematic means yet seen to identify key value creators and informal knowledge communities that drive corporate core competencies.”

One of our largest non-profit clients is Pact. From their web site: “Pact’s mission is to help build strong communities globally that provide people with an opportunity to earn a dignified living, raise healthy families, and participate in democratic life. Pact achieves this by strengthening the capacity of grassroots organizations, coalitions and networks and by forging linkages among government, business and the citizen sectors to achieve social, economic and environmental justice.” Pact has been an InFlow site licensee for 5+ years. Matt Reeves, who has lead many social network mapping and building projects for Pact, sent us this unsolicited comment in a recent email:

“At Pact, we now have a number of staff set up with our small office license and have used InFlow
in a range of projects all around the world. I love how easy it is to use, and the clarity
of the maps produced by the software.”
