Harness Artificial Intelligence (AI) to streamline grant application summaries during the application review stage of the grants management lifecycle

Reviewing applications has always been a foundational part of grants management. As processes have grown more complex, many organizations have incorporated grant summaries into their strategy. These summaries serve as a valuable tool for various purposes such as initial reviews, community sharing, and even in board books for board members. However, creating individual summaries for each application can be a daunting task. It's not only time-consuming but also challenging to maintain consistency, particularly for programs that receive a large volume of applications.

This is the problem SmartSimple Cloud +AI's Instant Application Summaries solve. Utilizing Artificial Intelligence (AI), Instant Application Summaries introduce new options for organizations to approach this challenge, making the summary process more efficient and consistent.

How Instant Application Summaries work

This AI-powered tool harnesses the power of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to review the text within a grant application, extract the key points and summarize vital details.

By presenting the information in a succinct, understandable format, Instant Application Summaries enable grant managers to rapidly grasp the core elements of each application, saving time and effort that can be better spent on strategic decision-making rather than application summarizations.
