    This September, we built from an amazing experience last year, and went back to the Big Apple with another BlockParty. The event was graciously hosted by SmartSimple client, JDRF, a global leader in the search to end Type 1 diabetes through research, funding, and advocacy. And in typical fashion, we learned a lot from the stories of the SmartSimple community.

    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.
