And they’re nice people!

DATA VISUALIZATION AND REPORTING

Dashboards and built-in analysis and reporting tools make it quick and easy to extract grant information.

EFFICIENT PROCESSES

Processes are quicker with the proposalCENTRAL online process, streamlining the grants management process from application, review, selection, and award, to grantee reporting and post-award management. Clients experience between 30% and 50% shorter cycle times. Staff effort is reduced, and staff can handle more grants with less stress.

OUTCOMES

The outcomes module collects mission- and program-driven performance metrics from grantees to enable boards and donors to assess the outcomes and impact of programs and grants. Detailed budget, expenditure, and payment management enables the same performance assessment of grant and program financials.


COMMUNICATIONS

Communications are improved with all participants in the process through personalized email templates, and automated notifications and reminders. Once set up, these standard communications are automatic, freeing staff to focus on more critical communications with the applicants and grantees who require more attention.


FLEXIBLE CONFIGURATION

Tools enable you to mold the system to your processes and data needs. As your needs change, the system adapts with you.


QUICK IMPLEMENTATION

We will have you up and running in days, not months. proposalCENTRAL is hosted by Altum, so there is no hardware or software to buy. A flexible design supports rapid deployment of customized applications within just a few days. Our proven implementation methodology provides a clear path from requirements through final assurance and rollout.
