I use ProposalCENTRAL to coordinate pre-award and post-award review of applications/awards.

Pros

I like how much data is captured on applications and reviews. This is helpful for generating outcomes summaries.

Cons

I feel like some parts are counter-intuitive or not user-friendly. I would like to see improvements to the way that custom reports are pulled together.

Initially a little hard to navigate but after time very intuitive with the grants process.

We had several benefits including consistency in reporting, ability to see overdue reports, quick communication with awardees and integration with our AP systems.

Pros

It is very flexible to collect data. We can create numerous reports to obtain data from the database. Very easy to use for critiques and meetings. Completely integrates with our AP program.

Cons

The Report Builder is not a quick way to access information. A lot of manual manipulation is required for reports.

The program is somewhat not intuitive and requires a lot of training and use to be proficient

One big benefit is having a platform to "advertise" our grant opportunity. The biggest benefit though would be having a GMS that is cloud based, making it accessible to all employees anywhere at anytime.

Pros

I like the functions offered through pC. What makes it different from other grant management software is that it also functions as a platform for applicants to search for grant opportunities and keep all their applications in one place.

Cons

The actual interface is dated looking and finding certain functions is not very intuitive. As a new user, I found customer support was necessary frequently.

User friendly, great costumer service, makes review process easy

Pros

Once you go over the system a few times it's pretty self explanatory. It might just be easy because we're a small organization but the data is easy to compile.

Cons

I'm not always clear about what I can change vs what the grantee has to change, sometimes a small/easy to miss detail can make a huge difference.

Overall, this software accommodates a full online experience and hastens internal processes.

Pros

The ability to maintain all grant information in one place. The willingness of the company to edit, modify and upgrade the software for specific needs. Customer Support is one of the best I've ever experienced. They are very prompt in responses and problem solutions.

Cons

Functionality is somewhat old school and labor intensive. Reporting limited especially if you're using all aspects of the software.
