iCoalesce changes the way you think about grant evaluating and not soon enough. Since the economic downturn, winning and evaluating grants requires clear statements of goals and objectives as well as how they are to be measured. Our specialized goal tree package allows grant writers and evaluators to enter grant structures directly into a secure project. iCoalesce streamlines the evaluation process with our report generator, analytic routines, and our customizable survey creation, distribution, and data collection system. To tie it all together each project includes a suite of communication and management tools including project news announcements, forum, to-do lists, automatic notifications and much more. Finally a software service made with grant evaluators in mind.
Every grant proposal uses a variant of the structure of goals, objectives, activities and performance measures. With the increased competition in recent years grantors now require a clear statement of goals, outcomes and how they are to be measured. So it only makes sense to allow grant evaluators to create and monitor the goal tree for every program. Each performance measure is attached with a survey to provide for direct, easy data collection and real-time monitoring. Due to many organizations allowing their grant programs to adapt to maximize success rates, all of iCoalesce for grant evaluator features can be easily edited to meet your clients needs.
iCoalesce provides you with a secure survey system to create, distribute and collect data from surveys. Questions are easily added into new or existing surveys and can include custom weights and skip logic. Existing surveys are conveniently stored in your personal library which can then be shared with others, edited, or archived to maximize reuse. Instead of a solution for everybody iCoalesce has multiple survey distribution methods. One method having iCoalesce project members directly fill out the survey inside the project. To send surveys outside iCoalesce a simple click sets a survey to be public, creating a clickable link to distribute in emails or to print. Submitted survey responses are automatically stored in an secure project database that includes powerful, easy to use searching and analysis tools.
How much time do you spend each month simply compiling all the necessary reports for your clients? iCoalesce streamlines the whole process from data collection through analytics to reporting. We provide a suite of commonly used analytical routines including descriptive statistics, cross-tabulations, correlations and more. Custom analytical routines can be included into your analysis library on an individual basis. The system includes a chart/graph tool for data visualization necessary for any report including pie charts, histograms, and much more. Using iCoalesce the reporting process has never been easier. Setting up a report template allows our system to automatically include saved information such as grant or bio information, charts images.
An iCoalesce project is provided for each relationship you have with an organization or client as a centralized place for you and the program administrator(s) to easily and securely stay informed of program events, news, tasks, and reports. For your convenience events, tasks, and due dates are automatically entered into the program calendar. To facilitate communication and management between grant evaluators and program administrators iCoalesce projects include goal trees/evaluations, forums, to-do lists with assignable tasks, project news, and a knowledge base.
