The past few years have seen a number of new grants management products come to market. The increase in options is good for the sector as a more diverse product landscape leads to more competition and, ultimately, technology that is better keeping pace with the changes happening in philanthropy and technology. Nowadays, data is at the heart of everything, and you need software that supports the way you actually work, not the way a product wants you to work.
And this is why we decided to build a grants management solution. Or rather, this is why we went to our clients, some of the largest and most strategic grantmakers, and said, “Work with us to build this solution. Work with us to build something unique, and of real value to the sector.” And the call was answered. We rolled up our sleeves and got to work, engaging deeply with program, grants, finance, and executive teams so that we could really understand the nuances of the way they work.
