Terrain NRM recently implemented Enquire Grant Management to offer their Community Grants application form online. Already 20 projects have won funding through successfully engaging with Terrain NRM online through their new grant application site.
Enquire Grant Management is an internet based grant program management system designed to eliminate offline forms and assessment processes, reduce paper work and improve data integrity through a secure and centralised system.
“Terrain NRM needs to ensure it can meet community expectations and best business practice by efficiently managing high volumes of applications and increasing our program’s accessibility across our region. Enquire supports our operational capacity without the need to add new resources” says Michelle Nusse, Terrain Business Manager. “Our new online forms reduce double handling and data entry, as well as incorporate data verification and assessment stages, saving everybody time and money.”
Terrain NRM used Enquire’s Form Builder to tailor forms for online grant applications that enabled grant applicants to tell their story in detail and ensured the unique requirements of the Community Grants program were met. By employing knowledge and skills gained in personalised consultation sessions, Terrain NRM could quickly road-test their grant application form and incorporate feedback.
Enquire Grant Management provided additional tools to help Terrain NRM to review the Community Grants program’s overall progress through reporting on grant applications and whether applicants met program requirements.
“Overall we were really happy with the outcomes we got from using the Enquire online application portal. Terrain was the first organisation to trial this new feature and although there were some unforeseen challenges along the way, the solutions found and the learnings gained for both Terrain and the developers will definitely add value to the application feature. We had amazing support from the whole Enquire team under some tight deadlines and we are looking forward to using the online application portal for our next round of grants,” added Marin Haldane, Operations Officer.
Enquire Grant Management provides configurable application forms, templates and reporting that can be configured to meet individual business needs all within a system that is internet based, fully managed and supported. “Terrain NRM are able to configure the system to include any data they need, clone and reuse templates or workflows and manage project information, including tasks and planned outcomes” says Damien Zeller, Tactiv’s COO. “Work undertaken on Terrain’s initial Community Grants program can be updated, revised and reused delivering future time and cost savings to subsequent grant programs.”
Through incorporating Enquire Grant Management to manage the full lifecycle of their grant business Terrain NRM can ensure its business processes are streamlined, data is secure and up-to-date and that they, and their stakeholders, benefit from Enquire’s extensive and configurable reporting capabilities.
