SmartSimple Cloud +AI's QuickTag: An enhanced way to navigate your grantee database

Posted by SmartSimple Software on Aug 15, 2023 4:21:56 PM

For grantmakers, efficiently navigating through a database of grantees and applicants can often be challenging. Grant Management Systems (GMS) are instrumental in tracking grantee data but typically lack the additional step of intuitively summarizing and classifying organizations by type. This results in grantee databases that are increasingly difficult to navigate over time. This makes everything, from database navigation to identifying similar organizations, much more difficult. Recognizing this gap, we present a novel feature called QuickTag.

Private equity and philanthropy: Exploring the implications

Written by Mike Reid, COO and co-founder of SmartSimple Software

Private equity ownership and the percentage-based pricing narrative

As the CEO of a software company operating in the not-for-profit sector, I want to delve further into a prevailing trend that warrants closer examination. Private equity ownership in the software industry, particularly in companies providing solutions for managing donations and grants, has become increasingly common. There is a narrative that tying software revenue to a percentage of the not-for-profit's program budget benefits all parties involved. However, we must critically evaluate this notion, taking into account additional dimensions that have significant implications for both software providers and not-for-profit organizations.
