Altum, Inc., Releases Easygrants 7.8

Reston, VA – June 30, 2014 – Altum, Inc. announced today that it has released the next significant version of Easygrants™, its enterprise grants management solution.

Easygrants™ 7.8 includes the Easygrants™ scheduler, a high performance processing engine which yields dramatic improvements in document generation and conversion for all clients.

“The scheduler has been a monumental leap forward in performance and scalability of our processing engine; we could not be more excited about its potential going forward.” says David Cooke, Director of Technology at Altum.

In addition, 7.8 continues to build on features from prior releases, such that the form configuration has become easier and more flexible, allowing custom configuration to be done without coding changes. The powerful financial management capabilities of Easygrants™ have been further enhanced and extended. This release also yields much improved abilities to integrate with external systems and perform data migration into Easygrants™.

In addition to all of these, significant focus has been made on installing Easygrants™ in a very short timeframe. A template implementation is available that dramatically cuts the startup time to get Easygrants™ installed, configured and running.
