As natural disasters become increasingly common and intense it is vital that governments, non-for-profits, and other funding organisations have processes in place to facilitate rapid and reliable recovery and resilience programs. Enquire is a full lifecycle management software solution that streamlines these processes to speed-up decision making and ensure community needs are met.
Enquire Disaster Recovery Management Software is designed for American Government Agencies, Local Councils, Not-for-Profits, Corporates, Foundations and Higher Education Institutions.
When disaster strikes timing is everything. The sooner that funds are received, the sooner the recovery starts, and the sooner communities can return to normal. Enquire allows organisations to bring programs online faster, with citizen-centric applications and streamlined correspondence to ensure those in need face minimal delays and uncertainty.
With Enquire the process of establishing a new funding round is simple. Simply set the open and close dates, eligibility criteria and round details, and begin collecting applications from a fully branded client portal. You can even replicate past funding rounds and tweak them as needed, using configurable templates. Prepare ahead for fire and flood season with funding rounds ready to go live in just a few clicks.
Enquire’s citizen-centric user interface and navigation make the process of applying for grants less stressful for those living in the aftermath of a disaster. With auto-fill responses, data lookup and validation, and the ability to attach documents such as photographs, the application process is faster for applicants and easier to assess for your management team.
Should issues arise in an application, or more data be required for governance purposes, requesting an amendment is simple. Once requested, applicants will receive email notifications and alerts in their client portal account. Workflows guide the applicant to the exact application field that requires changes, with comments to provide further context.
Ensure all eligible applications are approved without delay using configurable workflows, bulk actions, and email templates. Enquire gives you the tools to respond to an enormous number of claims quickly without compromising program governance in the process. Financial integrations and payment milestones make scheduling and processing funding hassle-free for you and your applicants.
Assess claims faster using configurable workflows that eliminate delays by clearly identifying the assessment status, current assessor and more. Notify assessors when they are required to complete a step, including both your internal management team and external assessors who can seamlessly complete their reviews using the client portal.
If an emergency event is large enough to impact your entire community, you need a reliable system capable of handling an inundation of applicants. Enquire’s bulk actions enable greater efficiency and reduce the load on your team by allowing them to edit or approve multiple assessment forms in a single click.
Provide both detailed and rapid responses to application requests using a range of templated responses sent directly from the system. Templates are also used to generate the contracts that are stored against the record. Process one-off payments or recurring milestones with schedules by integrating with your financial system.
Whether you are proactively funding projects to reduce the severity of future disaster events or responding to those in urgent need, it is essential that you maintain complete oversight of your funding. Right through from validations in the application step to indicator-based outcome reporting, Enquire makes it easier to ensure that funds have been awarded and spent appropriately throughout the funding lifecycle.
Transparent eligibility criteria, mandatory fields and declaration checks improve the relevance of applicants by pre-screening potentially ineligible applicants. Enquire allows applicants to attach necessary evidence of their claim for assessors to review and validate before moving forward.
With configurable performance indicators that can be used across your funded projects, Enquire makes it easier to track, manage and analyse outcome data. Simply link costs to tangible outcomes and share this data with stakeholders via one-click reports to promote transparency and show that funds are being spent appropriately.
Enquire’s host of risk management features enable you to assess program performance with up-to-date data, making subsequent financial and compliance checks easier to manage. Conditional funding milestones and enhanced communication with funding recipients makes acquitting your disaster payments easy and efficient for all involved.
