AUSTIN, TX (March 14, 2016) — Catapult Systems, a leading IT consulting firm and nationally managed Microsoft solutions provider, today announced the availability of a new Grants Management solution. The solution streamlines and enhances the grant making process from creation to completion, allowing grant makers to focus on fulfilling their organization’s mission while reducing the complexity of managing the grant process.

The Catapult Systems’ Grants Management solution greatly reduces the administrative burden associated with creating, reviewing, verifying, scoring and awarding grants to individuals, businesses or governments. During a grant’s lifetime, this solution continues the post-award administration including contracting, funding and reimbursement, reporting and ongoing monitoring of progress.

“After coming to the realization that commercial off-the-shelf packages weren’t fully meeting the needs of large grantmaking institutions, Catapult came up with a solution to help them accomplish this process. Their feature sets are becoming overly complex and they lack the flexibility needed to accommodate the unique processes of each organization,” states David Fuess, CEO of Catapult Systems. “We designed the grants management solution on Microsoft Dynamics CRM so we can quickly custom configure the solution for customers, providing a robust solution that meets their unique needs.”

Unlike traditional grant management solutions’ one-size-fits-all approach, each Catapult Systems’ Grants Management engagement starts with a detailed understanding of an organizations current grantmaking process. Our team of business process consultants partner with customers to ensure our industry-leading workflows are configured for the organization’s needs.

The solution layers best practice business processes in grant management onto Microsoft Dynamics CRM to provide next-generation productivity improvements for customers. The CRM platform easily integrates with Microsoft solutions such as Office365 to support Excel and Word templates and editing within the solution; document management across SharePoint and OneDrive; and robust email and task creation with Exchange. It is a highly scalable architecture that provides unlimited opportunities for future development and enhancement.
