PwC enables effective grants management with Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics CRM
The Grants Management solution is a customisable solution designed to be tailored to your grant processes. Grants Manager Plus integrates with legacy applications, allows applicants to apply online, gives grantors instant access to where every grant is in the process, and facilitates the management of funding and payment authorisations.
You can use Grants Management to:
Automate grants management to simplify processes and reduce errors and delays
Customise workflows to efficiently assign and track tasks and responsibilities
Manage grantees’ organisational information
Manage grantors’ reviewer and award information
Manage funding and payment authorisations
Provide financial summary information at grant/application and program levels
Generate ad hoc reports and dashboards to streamline operational and strategic communications.
Integration between Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Dynamics AX allows the authorisation of funding sources and the processing of payment requests from Grants Management.
Manage grant applicants
With Grants Management you can maintain a rich set of data about each grantee, including multiple address types and points of contact and a history of programs for which they have applied in the past. This helps you analyse grantees and detect impact trends through business intelligence techniques.
Manage grant reviewers
Grants Management delivers advanced functionality to identify and audit reviewers and track the entire lifecycle of the review process, including unassigned applications. You get an easy way to automate the review process, including grouping reviewers and creating a website that reviewers can use to submit review scores based on a flexible, program-driven set of criteria.
Grants Management helps you manage and phase out funds for a grant after it has been awarded. You can administer and monitor payments and deliverables over multiple years to ensure the grantee is meeting all of its reporting and other stated obligations.
Grants Management provides a proposal management module to help you manage proposals, team members, vendors and contacts. All information on new, approved and rejected proposals is maintained and categorised for easy reviewing and auditing.
