Whether you’re a program manager for grants, scholarships, awards, or some other special program, at some point you may find yourself looking at the various options for application management software. The truth is there are a lot of options out there, and not all submission software is created equally. The whole point of purchasing software is to make your job easier, while also saving you time and money. With that in mind, we’d like to share some of the SmarterSelect features that may prove our software is just what you’re looking for.
The first step in application management for most program managers is to create their applications for hopeful candidates to fill out. One of the best SmarterSelect features is our intuitive, user-friendly program builder which shortens your time-to-market.
This is in large part thanks to our Program Library which is filled with real, tried, and true program templates developed by real program managers. Users just like you have given us permission to share their application questions and layouts so that you can simply duplicate and adjust to your needs until you have the perfect application for your own program.
Why reinvent the wheel, after all? It’s always better to use the proven ideas of successful people who have gone on before us. Our program library saves program managers hours of time debating about what to include in an application. Things you might not have even thought of - others have done, and therefore, may inspire your application too.
Once your program is ready to begin, communication throughout the entire process is key. That’s why we’ve implemented the following SmarterSelect features:
Application management systems should be designed to automate as much of the process as possible. That said, we’re proud to offer these SmarterSelect features to save you time on repetitive tasks:
A good application management solution will help thin the herd before the evaluation team ever gets involved. It’s that mindset that led to the following SmarterSelect features:
Another way SmarterSelect makes the application process easier on program managers and their teams is by including question-specific help, and by adding rules to the submission boxes for questions. For example, if you need to limit an essay to 500 characters, you can do that with the addition of a simple option. Or if you want to tell the applicant to write out their full legal name, your question-level hint could be “first, middle, last.” The easier you make it for your applicants to fill out their applications, the less time you have to spend curating the list of the most qualified candidates.
Hopefully, after looking through these SmarterSelect features you can see how our software makes program management easier and less time-consuming. However, we don’t want you to just take our word for it. We’d like you to kick our tires and see how our platform works. Click here to start your free trial today!
