In our November Upgrade, we are releasing 45 new features and enhancements. While we think all of the things we’ve added help to make Platform3 even better, we’ve highlighted a couple of enhancements and new features in this blog that we’re particularly excited about. You can find a full upgrade summary of all features and enhancements on our Wiki or by attending our Upgrade Webinars.
Consider this: non-profit organizations everywhere are under pressure to maximize their resources, provide for community needs, all while managing their relationships with foundations and partners. Meanwhile, funders and their staff are under duress to balance program development, stakeholder engagement, and fiduciary responsibility. At the end of the day, the grant application, for both grantseekers and grantmakers, is one part of the process that both have to interact with to move forward.
Along with having a clear mission and efficient processes, effective budgeting is critically important to any grantmaking organization's success. Leanly staffed grantmakers of all sizes can often grapple with maintaining and improving their philanthropic budgeting operations, especially when using systems that are rigid and do not easily adapt to today's rapidly changing world and economic uncertainty.
Grants management can be complicated. With the right software, it doesn’t have to be. We’re excited to introduce SmartSimple Direct.
Collaborating with multiple users on one application, especially when working remotely, can be a cumbersome challenge of gathering accurate information in an efficient manner. SmartSimple’s built-in Invitation feature allows your applicants to easily add co-applicants their submission, making collaboration much more efficient.
