Overall Satisfaction with Submittable

We run a small grant program. When we first started accepting applications, we had applicants fill out a PDF, submit via email with attachments, and then would upload all of that to a shared drive where reviewers could access specific applications. It was a lot of work and a lot of tracking. We decided to search for something that was more streamlined and Submittable fit our needs perfectly. We also love the reporting aspect because we are required to report out our recommended applications about every 3 months - the reporting is so streamlined and makes everything so much quicker.
  • Reporting
  • Creating an application
  • Communication with reviewers and applicants
  • Assignment of reviews
  • Randomization abilities for 'select all that apply' questions
  • Ability to show references in the application
  • Communicate with individual collaborators
  • Saves so much time in reporting
  • More/better response times from our reviewers
  • Less time between application periods because everything is easy to update
I think that the whole system is super intuitive. The onboarding was great and gave me all of the tools I now need to update/change, etc, my review process. I've rarely had to ask the Submittable support team for help because everything is super easy to understand. We have also received many comments on how easy the system is to use on the application and reviewer side of things.
Based on our market research at the time, we didn't actually demo any other products. We felt that Submittable really fit our needs.

Would you buy Submittable again?


We have often thrown around the idea of using Submittable for abstract management for conferences, which I think it would be well suited for but possibly overkill.
