MicroEdge, a provider of solutions for grantmaking community, released IGAM 4, an update to its online grant application solution that includes features such as online grantee reporting and enhanced communication.
IGAM 4 enables organisations to streamline the grants management process and manage grantee relationships. IGAM 4 provides for online submission of applications and now includes online grantee reporting. IGAM 4 advanced features facilitate online collection of progress reports, revised budgets and final reports, simplifying the process for both the grantee and the giving organisation.
IGAM 4 integrates with MicroEdge’s GIFTS grants management system. IGAM 4’s enhanced communication capabilities give grantees instant web access to request status, requirement due dates and forms. Online access of information reduces the administrative burden and allows staff to focus on strategic endeavors.
Danette Peters, grants manager for the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation, said: “Shifting to an online reporting process with IGAM 4 allows our foundation to eliminate mountains of paper and develop a more manageable approach to our outcomes analysis. It also helps us establish a clear line of communication to our grantees. Because many of our grantees are required to report on recurring grants, an online process enables them to more easily keep track of which grants we are asking about, and it simplifies and accelerates the reporting process.”
