SmartSimple GMS360

SmartSimple is a great choice as a Grants Management solution, it is very expandable and customizable to meet organizational needs. We have been waiting to see if they can come up with a Donor Portal solution but we haven't seen one yet. It would be nice to not have to have a separate solution for that

SurveyMonkey Apply

SurveyMonky Apply would work well for any application program. Because you are able to build your application and customize it to your specific needs, it would truly support any scenario. I recently attended a seminar with other SMA users and there was such a large spectrum of different companies and organizations that are using the product.It was so interesting, because we realized that despite how different all of us were, we all had the same application components: an eligibility stage, an application, and a review process. This made us more similar than we ever considered!

Pros

SmartSimple GMS360

  • We needed a system that could be flexible in how we manage different funds and it is an extremely scalable product.
  • We needed a system that was easy for our external grantees to navigate - by utilizing tabs and smart logic to make it easy for them to get around the system.
  • They have vastly improved their admin portal and it is very easy to create/edit forms, etc.

Cons

SmartSimple GMS360

  • Reports - as with most systems it's not always that easy to create a report on the fly. It would be nice to make this easier for all staff to do.
  • Workflows - not easy to create a more complicated workflow, usually requires support to assist.
  • Design - hoping that they upgrade their design to a more appealing look soon.

SurveyMonkey Apply

  • The only struggle we've experienced with SMA is the ease in incorporating other language formats for our applications. Being able to offer our application in other languages not only comes with an extra price, but the work needed to build the application in that language can be incredibly time consuming.

I honestly didn't search any further than SurveyMonkey Apply, as the price was so affordable and the ability to do everything we needed was already there.

SurveyMonkey Apply

  • As a non-profit organization, we are not profit oriented, but we ARE invested in growing our impact. SMA has provided a platform that enables our program to be scale-able and more accessible to our users.
  • SMA has provided a platform that allows for automations that truly save staff time, allowing us to focus on bigger picture work, rather than tedious data entry.
  • SMA has also provided a system for storing past applications.
