SurveyMonkey Apply

SurveyMonkey Apply is well-suited for any grant making entity. It is adaptable for desktop, mobile device, and/or tablet, making it super accessible to all applicants. Its reporting capabilities continue to improve, helping even the smallest non-profit.SurveyMonkey Apply is less appropriate for those whose applicants are not computer literate and/or are against using electronic devices to share information.

Slate, by Technolutions

Overall, [Technolutions] Slate has been an incredible CRM for our institution. It was easy to learn, and it does its job well. The ability for students to log back into a portal and see their application digitally has saved our staff a lot of time and effort. Previously, we had a web based application that didn't allow for applicants to be actively engaged in their application files and [Technolutions] Slate solved a real problem for us. It's affordable, intuitive and effective.

Cons

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.

  • Some of their table structures are overly complex; don't necessarily conform to usual standards in relational databases. This is being addressed, but some oddities still exist.

It's incredibly usable and easy to figure out. It's modern and does exactly what we need for it to do

While I do wish they had actual representatives that we able to come to you for trainings for implementation and new users, I understand that a big draw is the money that is saved by instead investing in knowledgebase, which is it's online tutorials for different functions of Slate.

Alternatives Considered

SurveyMonkey Apply

We were an applicant for a grant through another entity that used FluidReview. It was exactly what we were looking for in a grant application software. We did not compare any at that time as FluidReview fit our needs. Since then, we have applied for grants through GovGrants. It is terrible on the user end, and even our grant administrator states they feel limited. I cannot compare the two as we use one as the grant maker and the other as a grant recipient

Other products can provide what you need to do your job, but can make doing your job more difficult, or even time-consuming. Slate gives you the ability to do your job and to do it well. It creates a means of doing your job efficiently and in a timely manner, creating shortcuts and better processes than other products.

Return on Investment

SurveyMonkey Apply

  • Made managing applications much smoother and less time intensive
  • Presenting application data to external stakeholders is much easier

Slate, by Technolutions

  • It has dismissed the need for outside services such as Wufoo and Active Campaign.
  • It has dismissed the admissions main use of an outdated "crm": ECAMS.
  • It has intertwined the way that we house everything from digital documents to interactions in a simpler interface.
