As experts in the field of grant management, we know that managing awards, grants, scholarships, or other programs can be a time-consuming process. However, using an online solution to manage application intake and review can significantly reduce the burden. That’s where Submit.com comes in.
At Submit.com, we have helped many organisations move their grant management process online, streamlining their workflows/programs and making significant efficiencies in their business. Based on our customer feedback, we have compiled three tips to consider when setting up your application online.
Firstly, it’s important to detach from the email inbox. Juggling multiple tools to manage the process can lead to confusion and inefficiency. Instead, bring everything together in one location. Submit.com provides a one-stop-shop for collecting, reviewing, and managing applications. With all the information in one place, there’s no need to worry about losing or misplacing application data.
Secondly, communication is key. An application process can be stressful for applicants, and keeping them in the dark can lead to a drop in morale and an increase in support requests. At Submit.com, we encourage our users to embrace automation in the system. Our platform provides automatic emails and moves applicants between stages, ensuring they receive regular updates on the progress of their application. This keeps applicants engaged and reduces the workload of submission administrators and reviewers.
Lastly, only work on what’s relevant now. With Submit.com, you can archive applications that have passed your deadline or have been accepted. This keeps your workflow organised and ensures that you are always focused on the most recent and relevant data. Archiving applications also gives you the unique advantage of having old data lying just below the surface, making it easy to search for information if needed.
