Frequently Asked Questions

What’s a program?

A program is anything that you want people to apply for. It could be a scholarship, grant, recognition award, contest, report, exam, certification, survey, etc.

What’s a user and user count?

A user is an individual who logs on to the SmarterSelect website using a unique e-mail address. Users are the admins, evaluators, and applicants who access your programs and applications.

The user count for annual subscription purposes is based on the number of users who log into the site during your annual (12 month) subscription period. The user count resets to zero at the beginning of each new subscription period. Users cannot be deleted from the system to reduce user count.

An applicant who applies to multiple of your programs only counts as 1 user. Incomplete applicants are included the user count because we must provide the infrastructure and staffing to support all inbound applicants irrespective application completion.

Users who last logged into the system in prior annual subscription periods do not count against your current user count.    

What if I expect more than 10,000 users per year?

No problem! Our solution is very scalable. We have clients with up to 30,000 users (applicants) each year.  Contact us for more information and pricing.

How does your pricing and billing work?

We are an annual subscription service based on annual user count and the feature level (e.g. Create, Enhance, Enterprise). You pay for one year’s worth of service at the beginning of your subscription period and at each annual renewal. We will send you an invoice annually via e-mail. We accept payment via check, credit card,, or ACH transfer.

Do I have to sign up for multiple years?

Not at all!  Your subscription is for 1 year and renews automatically each year.  Should you wish to cancel, just let us know before or at your renewal date.  Unlike other vendors, we don’t feel you should be “trapped” into a service for years until you can switch.  We want to earn your business every day!

Do you have non-profit pricing?

Non-profit pricing is available to all of our customers.  Our service and pricing is also designed for both small and large organizations or for lean or complex organizations.

Are there any set up, maintenance, or support fees?

Nope! You’re provided free web conference training sessions when you sign up for our service. Customer support and all updates and new price-level features are included in your annual subscription price.

Can I try out your service before buying?

Absolutely! Click here to create a Trial account.  No credit card is needed.

Do I need a credit card or purchase order to sign up for the trial?

No. Our trial is 100% risk-free for you and your organization. All we need to create your account is some basic information about your organization … and about three minutes of your time.

Is there a time limit on the trial?

No. You can experiment with the trial as long as you’d like, although you’re limited to ten users.

The feature I’m most interested in isn’t available in my Trial account. Is there any way I could take it for a test drive?

Absolutely! Contact us and let us know what you’re looking for, and we’d be happy to give you a demonstration and/or activate the feature in your Trial account.

Can an applicant apply to more than one application or program?

Yes. Applicants can apply to as many programs as you have created. The user will only count once for purposes of your annual user count.

Tell me about your support?

As part of your annual subscription, you will receive access to the SmarterSelect On-Line Support Site, which provides user help, setup information, how-to answers, videos, and a community forum to help with common questions. Customer support is provided via e-mail, phone callback, and web conference. 

Our Support hours are 9 AM/Eastern US to 7:30 PM/Eastern US on Monday to Friday (holidays excepted).

We commit to responding to customer requests within one (1) business day, but typically it’s in a few hours or less!

Can you create my programs and applications for me?

The majority of clients find our service so easy to use that they create their own programs and applications following our training session. However, if you are short on time or would like to benefit from our best practices, please contact us for a quote for administrative services.

How do I contact you with questions or problems?

Please access our SmarterSelect On-Line Support Site and submit a support request. All emails are responded to within one business day but typically within the hour.

“Great price to quality ratio for the program.
Unlike others, they don’t raise prices dramatically every year and have kept the prices down, which is great for smaller budgets. Also, while keeping prices down they’ve added more and more features.”
