Pros: Ease of use of the software, you can find the information all in one location. Customer support does ready and answers your emails.

Cons: Sometimes the grants are incomplete--I can't find the closing date or if the grant spans more than one year.

I found the program easy to set up and navigate.

Pros: eCivis offers an easy to use interface that allows the user to easily search for specific areas and manage/track grants throughout the entire process. They also offer great technical support.

Cons: The price. It's a substantial investment, but the price can be worth it if you have staff that can aggressively pursue and secure the grant.

Overall: We have found several grants that we are eligible for.

Pros: I love the fact that all grants are located in one grant research portal. There are so many sites to research grants. The fact that e-civis combines all grants in one location is nice.

Cons: I do not care for the dashboard layout. I feel like it is too much on the screen. I would like to see a sleeker, more refined screen.

Pros: I particularly like the reminders and the Grant Announcements. I also appreciate that it serves as a repository for multiple departments who typically operate using different networks/servers.

Cons: Initially it took me quite some time to navigate. I thought training would help, and although I learned more about the features of the system, it still takes me a while to navigate. However, I eventually find accomplish the task.

Pros: It takes the pain out of looking for and tracking grant prospects. It's especially useful to get alerts for new cycles of grants we've considered or applied to in the past---and to get alerts for customized key word searches on new areas of interest.

Cons: Project management and grants management tools are more limited and not user-friendly or intuitive. The database is organized by topical Projects that don't work efficiently with how our agency subdivides our work.

The Ecivis network is user friendly and the customer support is helpful.

Pros: I like that the information is straight forward and easy to use. Whenever I reach out for support, I get answers to the questions I had. Additionally, the program is very easy to keep projects organized.

Cons: When you try to delete a "stage" you have to leave at least one file in there and can't delete it. In order to get the files delete, I have to upload a dummy file to remain in the project report section and it is not relevant to keep it in the file.

Pros: Probably the tracking features and being able to view past grants from the previous person in my position.

Cons: It is not intuitive or easy to use. You have to go through different tabs and enter some of the same information which seems redundant. I do not use often so when I do need to use it is usually a challenge trying to remember the steps.

I wish the process was a little more user-friendly as often, there is little time for data entry.

Pros: I completely LOVE the ability to search for grants and some of the resources attached. The research capability is the MAIN reason we have not totally stopped using eCivis. This is a wonderful tool and a much appreciated benefit.

Cons: for me, it isn't as user friendly as I thought it would be, which in turn, led me to not be using it to the fullest capacity I could have been. With little time on our hands for data entering, etc... trying to wend my way through the process of the system became a little cumbersome. I also was not extremely comfortable with the fact that more often than not, the current grant opportunities that I was aware of in our part of the country were either 1) not updated from previous years or 2) not there at all. Further, when I sent information to eCivis for them to enter it into the system (they do a better job at that than I do on my own because of the not-so-user-friendly process) it took longer than was conducive to what I needed. I would be working on a grant opportunity, ask for it to be entered into eCivis, and weeks later, I would receive a notice that it was entered...most often way after the grant had been submitted, awarded, etc...

I've always found it very easy to use the software. I enjoy being able to look in one place for mult

Pros: I like the fact that there are tutorials if there is something that you don't really understand. I also like the search method so you won't have to see ALL grants that have nothing to do with what you are looking for. I like how the system keeps up with your progress for you.

Cons: There is nothing that I don't like about the software. I have never had any issues with the software.

Pros: It's ease of use--very straightforward. I like the tasks and workflow features--they are very useful internally and make eliminate all the paper between departments. Tracking it and the time it's in a department is great too.

Cons: Scheduling reports takes too long. I think "simple tasks" should actually be simple. The scheduled report feature should be easier and all report should be camped under one or two folders in the eCivis documents section. There's no point is seeing a thousand different folders for various reports, as long as dates of reports are maintained. For example, we only need 1 folder for Progress Reports and 1 folder for FFRs.

Overall: Stay organized and on track with inter departmental tasks. Keeps documents in one place and easy to find.

The eCivis software is an excellent place to look for funding opportunities and it's user-friendly.

Pros: With so many grant opportunities, it can be a challenge to find every relevant grant to apply for. This software is not only easy to use, it's a streamlined approach to narrowing our search for grants that make sense for our organization.

Cons: The software can take some time to learn how to use. That said, eCivis offers training, and I found that after only a few hours of playing around with it that I got used to the search process and have appreciated the funding opportunities we've found so far.

Overall: The software is a great way to find grant opportunities, and to narrow our search for relevant funding opportunities.

The service keeps me updated on available grant opportunities.

Pros: The software allow the search criteria to take in several fields to search for the grants. It can search for several grants categorically and by the entities providing grant opportunities. It allows the users to save their grant search criteria for several tropics so the users don't need to recreate the search criteria .

The software is also being develop where the information can be retained for each grants that was applied for and awarded. It makes a great tracking system instead of maintaining several spreadsheet to track all of the grants.

Cons: Navigating and trying to figure where everything is located. Even during training, I got lost of which tabulation that the trainer was in. It is easy once I figured out where everything is.

Cons: Too much information to sort through. Need better filters and don't email me about grants that don't meet our criteria or no longer open. Updates are unneeded unless you had applied.

Pros: With most grant software I was unable to have other people work on them. There was always an issue about who would do what and when the project would be completed. With this program I am able to have multiple users registered in one grant project. There I can assign a specific task to someone and can go back and see the progress that has been made to it. This has helped greatly because we have a team of three that usually works on the same grant.

Cons: One of the issues that I have been experiencing is getting the search agent that I hae emailed to me to give me the appropriate grants that I am looking for. I have made specific change sin the filter area but I still get grant notifications that are not relevant to what the organization and does. Therefore, I cannot apply and it just gives me more work to do because I have to filter through the grants that should have already been filtered by the program. If there were more options when creating the search engine agent I think it would give more accurate results and create a better search.

Cons: The grant announcements that get emailed could be filtered more, or at the very least by state. We get emails for grants that we don't qualify for because of this.

Overall: Notifications of grants that are new to our organization. And notification of grant cycles that are open or that have deadlines approaching.

Pros: I can do both a very focused email, and I can do a broader brush email of grant opportunities. I read both and can then either click on the link to eCivis for a quick overview, or I can go directly to the grantor site for specific information regarding the opportunity. This saves me time and trouble looking through countless opportunities to find those of most interest to my organization.

Cons: Grants Network makes my job almost too easy. Other than that, I really cannot find anything I do not like about this software.

Pros: Easy use of search parameters and quick results provided. I'm new to the system and it was easy to learn and utilize, and provided me a lot of options while I was looking for grants for that initial project I needed it for. I like the ease of use and how informative the postings are once you get to them and being able to refer to them later made life easier while trying to track which to apply for, and which I'd already ruled out.

Cons: The only real con I have is the number of emails I received by eCivis and even that wasn't really too intrusive, and sometimes I found the information to be helpful regarding using the tool in the future. Overall, I think it's a good product and I'm still new to using it so I haven't identified any serious flaws that have prevented me from using it.

Overall: Quick and easy access to multiple grant opportunities relevant to the parameters I was searching within.

Being able to filter the grant search and receive a Summary of the RFPs makes work life much easier.

Cons: The time the summary is posted; however, it's very understandable because the RFPs consist of several pages.

Pros: The program is very easy to use. The categories to use when searching for funders is very convenient.

Cons: I have no complaints about the program. It covers the key factors about fundors that I need to prepare applications.

I am a daily user who is always searching for grant funding. Grants Network is easy to use.

Pros: The simplicity when it comes to searching for grants. There are too many grant funding sources that are just waiting to be discovered by applicants. This software makes it easier.

Pros: My favorite thing about this software is the grant search functionality. I especially like that I can set up key words and when relevant grants are released ecivis will send an email showing me grants matching my saved searches.

Cons: I don't seem to use all the features that ecivis offers. Specifically I prefer using my own proposal and grant management process than the features offered by ecivis.

Overall: Setting up keywords for grants I am interested in and receiving email notifications when relevant grants are released. I also like the links to grant management articles and such.

Pros: I love that I can easily look up grants and find different types. This is a GREAT service!! I love that it gives you options for foundations, federal and state.

Cons: I do not like the feature of looking at a grant and having to go back in and out to see certain tabs. Instead of saving a grant, I would like to tag it for interest for later review and if I close out of the grant, it takes me back to the top and I cannot remember what I looked at and didn't in a long list.

Pros: I like how eCivis has many options so it is very customizable for users. There are many options to change things or make them apply specifically to one's contracts. I think the program itself is very useful and will benefit our organization greatly!

Cons: I think it is almost overwhelming because there is so much (visually) going on. When I first started using eCivis I was a little apprehensive because I felt like the screen was a little cluttered, but it could be because I am an administrator.

Overall: Right now, we are in the beginning stages of setting up eCivis so we were not able to fully utilize all of the features that this software has to offer. So far, I think this software will greatly benefit our organization in the future.

Pros: I no longer have to scour the internet looking for grant opportunities; eCivis does that for me. There is nothing worse than finding a great grant opportunity, but then to learn that you have one week to complete the application. eCivis informs me of these same great opportunities the day they come along which allows me the time to complete them. Besides informing as they come along, they also find grants that I would never have found on my own.

Cons: The grant management side of the software is prepared to take on every contingency possible. Because of this ability, it is pretty complicated to navigate. If you are working for a city or university, then the management side of this software would be much more helpful than for a small school district like me. However, even for a small school district, this software is still well worth it.

Overall: I have more time to do other than things than search for grants and read grants that are dead ends.

This is a quick and easy way to search for grants and provide my boss a summary of the requirements.

Cons: I have struggled with using this system to track, update, set deadlines for the grants I have researched but in all fairness to eCivis, that is because I have not taken advantage of the resources available within eCivis.

Also, for running reports, there should be date ranges instead of just selecting 30,60,90 etc.

Pros: eCivis is an easy to use software that allows us the opportunity to research and apply for grants. Each grant is broken down to a concise summary that gives users the opportunity to review the grant to determine if they are eligible to apply. Users should review the grant's NOFO for more details, but users don't have to feel like they are wasting time by reviewing pages of a NOFO to find out they are not eligible to apply.

Cons: The search engine requires the user to be specific with its search requests. We work at a nonprofit museum and are looking for funding of restoration projects, museum collection assistance, and group tours, but sometimes when searching through eCivis it becomes difficult to find the required grants. We have been looking for restoration and preservation grants for buildings and items, but the search engine provides grants for paintings or other art related pieces.

Overall: An easy way to research grant opportunities in one safe and secure location.

eCivis has made searching for grant opportunities significantly more efficient.

Pros: I like the grant search functions but most importantly the grant tracking from beginning to end. I've been writing grants for 30 years, back before the internet, so I really understand and appreciate all this program does to help find and manage grants. The tutorials are short and to the point so when I need to learn about a function I have immediate access to learn how to do it. Having the ability to track and report with reminders of deadlines is one of the most valuable features in my mind especially in larger organizations that are juggling the management/compliance of many grants. For a large organization the cost of this software replaces a staff position that would cost as much but I'm convinced would be less efficient and likely more exposed to more errors. I would like to see eCivis come up with a smaller, affordable, simplified version (i.e. less bells & whistles) for small non-profits that just need to manage a handful of grants. Grant searching, writing and managing the grant really cut into programmatic responsibilities for these smaller organizations.

Cons: I don't really dislike anything about this software. From time-to-time I have thoughts of little things I wish were done differently or they would add but they haven't been important enough to keep record of.

Overall: 1. Ability to research grants and access the necessary details. 2. Store all documents in one location and share access to those documents with only the appropriate people.

Using eCivis for grant research has been a fantastic no-hassle experience.

Pros: Above all else, ease of usage is the most beneficial aspect of the eCivis system. The interface is simple, clean, and effective in communicating the most important aspects of grants to users, making the searching process one which is relatively painless and improving the efficiency of narrowing down eligible grants.

Cons: The overall visual look is rather plain, but this is a small nitpick, as the efficiency of the system overall negates the need for a flashy visual appeal.

Pros: Daily New and Updated Grants Notification.

Great tool for researching specific Primary Investigators needs; from programmatic needed funds, to specific disease or research needs.

Cons: Some are not relevant to my needs.
Since I am solely interested in looking for open calls for proposals for grants health related, I do not utilize the website for all of its capacity, so my input is limited to what I used, which is the daily new grant and updated notifications.

Overall: This software helps me when searching for grants for our faculty on campus.
Also, I put together a bi monthly report with upcoming deadlines for grants that might be of interest of anybody on our campus, and the Daily New and Updated reports that I get from eCivis is an invaluable tool for that purpose.

Software is intuitive and easy to adapt to my agency needs.

Comments: From my experience, I have been very pleased with the product. I have a very specific grant application focus ( i.e. foundations seeking to fund transitional housing and support services for individuals recovering from substance use disorders) and I am able to drill down to that specificity with the features that are available with eCivis. I have not needed to utilize much of the customer service feature offered by the program but when I have, it's been exceptional.

Comments: The services provided by eCivis was outstanding. Their team of experienced managers and hardworking grant writers were able to quickly assess and respond to the needs of the Sheriff¿s Department by providing technical assistance for several of our grant applications. It is their attention to details and responsiveness that makes eCivis an incredible resource.

The Grants Network software is extremely simple and user friendly when researching grant opportunities.

I have been using this system regularly to find possible grant opportunities.

Comments: The Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department has utilized eCivis over the past several years to research grant opportunities. Our Department applies for over $2 million in capital grant funding annually, and this service has allowed us to expand our search beyond our standard development grants to programming grants as well as funding opportunities that are available only non-profits. The Department has successfully established ¿Friends of¿ groups at our three nature centers, and we are looking to partner with these groups as well as other outside non-profits to expand our ability to apply for additional capital and programming grants.

eCivis offers several excellent features. The ability to research a grantor¿s past funding history allows our staff to determine whether a grantor¿s mission aligns with your proposed project. eCivis also sends a daily email which lists new grant opportunities as well as updates. The updates have been extremely beneficial, as often a second round of funding is advertized mid-cycle and our staff might not be aware of the new cycle if it weren¿t for the notification. When available, eCivis also includes past grant applications in their entirety, which is helpful in reviewing applications which have previously received funding. I would highly recommend eCivis to organizations interested in pursuing grant funding.

Excellent resource for non-profit agencies!

Comments: I have used eCivis for the past five years and because of the excellent service I have turned down multiple offers from other grant research companies to try their product. The weekly grant updates are useful and the details are easy to access when a potential funding match is identified. Customer service is prompt when needed, but the best part is that I have not had much reason to use them -- everything is easily accessible and intuitive to learn. As a CEO of a non-profit with a million dollar budget, I can heartily say that eCivis is a great match for other similar organizations.

I have found eCivis to be user-friendly and highly effective for our needs.

It has been highly effective for our use in managing our grants and applying for grants. The customer service is exceptional. I have had ongoing support from the staff at eCivis, which has been highly beneficial in our implementation of the software. I highly recommend this software.

Comments: The City of McAllen's Grant Administration team uses eCivis on a daily basis to research and manage grant projects because it¿s fast, intuitive and customizable to work with our schedules. eCivis not only presents current and potential grant opportunities but also makes past grants available for research ¿ a notable resource when some agencies¿ websites do not publicize this information. eCivis customer service has an outstanding response time as they typically get back to us with answers to our inquiries within the same day, minutes even! eCivis is excellent in that it tracks user activity, which helps us determine our organization¿s user trends, metrics and grant profile, another great tool for demonstrating its value come budget season.

It's a great, comprehensive software, use it every day and love the access to everything needed.

Comments: Really love the access to everything needed to apply for grants including links to the NOFAs, budgets, reviews, pre-award files, grant applications, contact information and suggestions. Your trainings are very useful, well organized and timely as well as your legislative insights. The only negative, which occurs infrequently, is how some grant opportunities are posted late while government websites have had them posted for a while. Otherwise, I really cannot find anything that would be a negative on this software. eCivis thought of everything.

eCivis has been a time saver in searching for grants and a good resource of other grant info.

Comments: I've been writing grants for eight years, and now teach grant writing for the health department. All my students (employees) sign up for eCivis and use it for their class homework to get them started finding funding opportunities. We have found the website easy to use and the information helpful. I use some of the eCivis handouts and educational information in class. The eCivis representative is great about getting students access to the website, usually within the same day as my request, and also helping those who need assistance. A few have used the grant tracking features, too. And the eCivis training sessions are helpful. But mostly it helps to save time in searching for funding opportunities, which is easy to do without training.

Comments: We have been using eCivis for over a year and found it easy. There is an abundant amount of information that can be searched and narrowed down to our projects. The eCivis system makes it easy to setup projects and have notices sent when a grant come available. The customer support is great. We are constantly being sent tips to improve our outcome and training modules to improve our proficiencies. There are also some great webinars to improve our chances of getting grant awards.
So far so good,

The City has been using this software for several years now to research and apply for grants.

Comments: My experience with this software has been very good because the software is user friendly and easy to work with. It would be wonderful if the City would find funds to allow us to use the software for managing and tracking all of our grants but that is a ways off. Various departments throughout the City use the research mechanism and have been very satisfied with their results.
