Pros: I like that applicants have to create accounts in order to apply, and that I can include descriptions for various kinds of applications.

Cons: I don't like that applicants can create duplicate submissions for one application. This makes reviewing applications difficult and creates more work for our staff on the back end. I don't like that once you "close" an application you can't "hide" it also. This makes managing the program on the back end overwhelming.

Foundant is a must for grant makers

Comments: I am not sure how I could manage my grant and scholarship programs without Foundant GLM. Foundant is the most user-friendly (for applicants and administrators) and intuitive product on the market. Most people do not understand how labor-intensive grant and scholarship management is - Foundant gets it!
Foundant is extremely powerful; but moreover, it's very simple to use. Little to no training is needed to use all the functionality. I cannot stress enough how intuitive the work flow is, and how client-centered ALL the Foundant staff works! Updates and improvements to the program are prioritized according to our (Foundant client) needs. Love, love, love this work solution.

Comments: GLM works great for us. It is relatively easy to use and is a complete grants management product. The cost, customer service, technical assistance and capacity are its best features. Cons include some challenges with contact management and detailed reporting tool.

Comments: We have used the Grant Lifecycle Manager for over two years now, and have found the technology to be extremely intuitive and user-friendly. It has helped us organize our grantmaking process, from streamlining LOIs, and reviewing and organizing grant proposals, to recording and tracking outcomes. Being able to sort, manipulate, and export data has also made it easy to share information with our team in real-time. Most importantly, the Foundant team is always highly responsive and great to work with. We would highly recommend Foundant and their Grant Lifecycle Manager technology to anyone in the philanthropic space who seeks an effective tool for elevating their grantmaking process.

Comments: Based on a subscription cost that doesn't increase with the number of grantees or evaluators; GLM allows administrator's access to create and edit forms and email templates and is easy to use for both administrators, applicants and reviewers. Web based SAS, all GLM clients receive updates at the same time. Upgrades are well planned, implemented into demo sites for clients to test and implemented to the live systems seamlessly. Very little downtime and strong client support makes this company shine.
