Discover a more delicious way to present your project reports., research papers., outcomes reports., policy reports., content.     

What is Report Kitchen?

Report Kitchen is a platform for publishing research reports, policy papers, project outcomes reports, and similar large, structured report documents.

Organizations typically post these reports as PDFs on their website, but PDFs don't work well on mobile, they don't support video or interactive data, you can't share just one section, they're terrible for SEO, you can't get good analytics from them... the list goes on.  Report Kitchen solves all of these problems.

Report Kitchen is the solution to all those PDFs nobody reads.

Benefits

Transform your research, project, and policy reports into engaging, interactive experiences optimized for online, mobile and social.

Optimized for phones, tablets, and the future

Report Kitchen reports utilize the latest, standards-compliant responsive design techniques to ensure the best possible experience on every device

Effortless social sharing

Unlike PDFs, your readers can share a specific section of your report with friends and colleagues. If they share an interactive chart their share includes a still image for context.

Interactive data visualization

Printed or PDF reports often include static charts and graphs to illustrate data but modern interactive data visualizations are much more engaging and impactful. Report Kitchen’s extensive dataviz capabilities will make your data come alive.

Video, forms, and interactivity

Enhance your report with embedded video, or create polls, quizzes or feedback forms to engage your readers and add call-to-action links.

Better Search Engine Performance

While search engines can usually read the contents of a PDF file, the user experience is very rough. You only see one result for the entire document even if there are multiple matches for your search. Report Kitchen results look and work like you’d expect, and take you right where you want to go, without waiting.

Accessible & Multilingual Ready

All our reports comply with WCAG 2.0 and U.S Section 508 standards for accessibility. If you have or you need your document translated to other languages, a single Report Kitchen site serves your entire audience.

This foundation-funded research project examined some best practices of a housing authority partnership in the Pacific Northwest.

Video interviews were a key component of the project, and a PDF with external video links would have been awkward and confusing. With Report Kitchen, the videos form a seamless part of the reader experience, and the overall report is more engaging too.
