In May 2016 we published the fourth edition of A Consumers Guide to Grants Management Systems, a collaborative effort of Idealware, PEAK Grantmaking (previously Grants Managers Network), and the Technology Affinity Group. Because vendors are constantly improving their products between editions of our report, we are also publishing four Vendor Product Update Supplements to help you keep up with those improvements.

For the first supplement, we invited vendors included in the report to submit information about any updates or additions they made to their systems since our software demos for the report. For this, the second supplement, we’ve asked them about any changes they’ve made since then. There will be two more supplements after this.

All content is provided by the vendors themselves in response to our questions. By publishing both the guide and the supplements, we strive to provide transparency that fosters healthy competition in the market and helps vendors to be more responsive to their clients’ needs. Participation in this update is not mandatory, and not all vendors chose to participate in this second edition—that does not mean they won’t choose otherwise in subsequent editions, nor does it mean their systems are not being updated. We’ll continue to invite them in the future.

Like the Consumers Guide, the supplement is free to download thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. Just sign up below.
