It is mainly being used by our Program department for our competitive grant process, however anyone who is a member of our Internal Review Committee was also accessing SmartSimple or Grant Central as we branded it. We already had a GMS prior to SmartSimple, however it was a self-managed platform. We are not in the business of application development so engaging with a company like SmartSimple took that burden off of our plate. It also has improved our processes and efficiencies within our organization - we are completely paperless when it comes to grants processing.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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.
