Global Value Exchange API

by Global Value Exchange

Jan 30, 2017

Did you know that the Global Value Exchange now has an API?

We believe that sharing information on stakeholders, outcomes, indicators and valuations enables impact measurement to be more transparent and effective. By understanding what information is being collected by other organisations to measure social value, you can draw upon a large pool of knowledge and adopt best practices in your own activities.

To help you do this, we have developed an Application Programming Interface (API). This allows you to access the almost 30,000 metrics (i.e. outcomes, indicators and valuations) on our crowd sourced database, in real time. A list of the most well-known frameworks and data sets hosted on the Global Value Exchange is available here. Metrics and the linkages between them are provided in a format which is machine readable (JSON). We can also provide information in a CSV spreadsheet.

How you use this API is up to you. It can be used to conduct research on social value, improve the services you provide to stakeholders or create altogether new ones! Several organisations are already using this information to help them deliver their products.

Pricing (excluding VAT) is detailed below:

Discounts are given for individual and organisational membership of Social Value UK or Social Value International. An additional discount is given if the API is used in a software product which has been accredited by Social Value UK.

To get started, check out the technical documentation here. If you think this API would be useful to you, please contact the GVE team.
