Overall Satisfaction with Grant Lifecycle Manager

It's being used across our entire organization as the platform for our grant-making needs. Phases are encompassed in the GLM are: Letters of Interest/Application/Feedback and Evaluation/Selection/Electronic Agreement/Progress Monitoring/Payment/Correspondence. It helps to keep us organized by creating a single spot for our applicant/grantee application/grant agreement interactions.

Pros

  • I like the features that allow me to look at and provide input to applicants and grantees as they fill out applications and reports while they in progress. This is beneficial to both of us and helps us to build a good working rapport.
  • I like being able to review applications in the side-by-side with the my score sheet. It makes my reviews more efficient when I can look at the application while I'm writing my notes. No more printing things off. I can do it all online.
  • I like that there are multiple ways to find the grant information that I'm looking for within the system. The dashboard is easy to use and intuitive. I can usually find what I need fast.

Cons

  • I don't think about what's lacking. This is much better than our previous grants management software.
  • The landing page could have a snappier design.
  • I wish our grantees could see more than one follow-up for a process at a time. Sometimes there needs to be a project mod submitted while that is an active renewal going on.
  • It's helped us gain efficiencies.
  • We've stabilized the cost of our data management. The pricing structure provides better value than competitors that seemed to nickel and dime us.
GLM had the right combination of structure, utility, customer-focus, price that made it the most appealing.
It's well suited for a philanthropy that has multiple roles within the organization that need access to a system that is easy to understand.
