Cascade Personal

This is the Personal licence for one self-employed coach, ideal if you run your own coaching practice and you will be the only user of Cascade. It includes an array of reports to get you started where you can manage the themes of your clients. You may want to add the Bonus Pack if you work with teams or clients beyond the top 5 themes. As your business grows, the Go Large add-on expands the capacity of Cascade from 500 clients to 2000.

If you work for an organisation, you need the Cascade Professional licence.

Product Options

Cascade is available with two different licence types depending on your usage.

Cascade Personal 
Limited to self-employed coaches with their own coaching practice. Cascade is licensed to one coach where their name and company appears on all of the client reports.

Cascade Professional
Designed for coaches working in a department for an organisation in the same location. Cascade is licensed to the organisation where the organisation’s name and location are shown in the reports. The same location is defined by the same town/city. Geographically spread organisations will require a separate licence of Cascade for each location.

The user(s) are not permitted to electronically distribute Cascade or use it beyond the limits of the licence. Sharing the whole of Cascade with a client is not acceptable.

Bonus Pack
The Bonus Pack adds another level to many of the Cascade reports. It provides a second page to the team reports for larger teams. The individual reports have the option to show the theme characteristics beyond the top 5, displaying themes 6 to 10.

Go Large
Cascade as standard can accommodate up to 500 clients or staff. The Go Large option expands the capacity to 2000 clients. This is beneficial for larger organisations and coaches who have a large client base.

Language Packs
New for 2020 is the ability to create the reports in French, Spanish and German. There is an easy way to change the language in the Settings part of the Cascade Menu.

Cascade runs on Microsoft Excel for Windows or Mac incorporating several advanced features to bring a seamless and visual package.  Cascade requires MS Office 2016, 2019 or Office 365.

The recommended platforms for Cascade are Excel for Windows and Excel for Mac.

Due to the wide variety of content featured in Cascade, Numbers for Mac does not support all the technical functions required. Cascade does not function properly on Google SheetsOfficeLive or LibreOffice, several of the graphical elements distort and a few of the critical functions are not available. We do not recommend using Cascade on these platforms.

Cascade also requires that Macros are Enabled. In corporate environments, make sure that the use of macros is permitted.

Excel Online does not support macros so Cascade does not function properly with Excel Online.
