Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) was challenged not only with the high volume of incoming grant applications but effectively managing the diverse needs and requirements associated with each application. Their data was scattered across different software and platforms, which caused delays in their administrative and application review processes. SmartSimple delivered them a cohesive system that integrated all functionality they needed into one, centralized platform to simplify their workflows. This enabled OCE to efficiently manage their processes on a large scale.

Stop Now And Plan’s (SNAP®) spreadsheet-based administrative process needed a software solution to accommodate its Canada-wide expansion of mental health services. Not only did SNAP need a way to consolidate and track all stages of their implementation and service delivery around the world, they also needed to maintain fidelity and create a support system for their affiliate offices across the country and beyond. SmartSimple delivered a cloud-based centralized system that enabled SNAP to collect and report data across all of their locations to best serve families and support internal and external stakeholders during all stages of program implementation.
