The application keeps us organized, streamlines multiple grant projects, and allows for tracking from start to finish. It allows us to share access to necessary parties whether that’s faculty, staff, leadership, or development officers. It also makes signing off and approvals fairly easy.

Cayuse (SmartGrant) has been in place at our institution for a while and we wouldn’t examine using anything else because it has been easy to work with, access, and stay organized with. Cayuse (SmartGrant) is also used for our office of research and is separate from our development software to keep everyone organized.
