This partnership leverages strengths from both our organizations and gives the user new access to functionality, for collaboration, that is critical to finding and securing grant funding.
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
InfoReady Corporation, provider of social media-based search and collaboration software products, has teamed with the Grants Resource Center (GRC), a unit of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), to provide access to InfoReady’s In4Grants™ proposal development and collaboration functionality.
The GRC GrantSearch funding database of federal and private foundation grant information is offered exclusively to GRC member campuses. Members who find grant information on the GRC GrantSearch site can now send the grant opportunity to In4Grants™ to set up an information workspace for proposal preparation or further research development. The In4Grants information project workspace allows users to invite collaborators, share documents, approve documents, send messages, comment, establish tasks and timelines and track all activity easily with no setup, training or complex administration. This information workspace functionality will be offered at no charge to GRC members for a pre-determined amount of project workspaces per member campus. GRC members can also upgrade to the full In4Grants product, which offers a database for federal/foundation grants, SBIR/STTR and federal contracts/RFP funding opportunities with unlimited information project workspaces and comprehensive automated, on-demand reporting.
“This will be a valuable resource for GRC members. With the In4Grants partnership, members will identify funding opportunities through GRC’s GrantSearch database, and then use the search results to take proposal development to the next level through InfoReady’s state of the art inter-institutional and interdisciplinary collaborative tools,” commented Richard Dunfee, executive director of GRC.
Bhushan Kulkarni, CEO of InfoReady Corporation, added, “This partnership leverages strengths from both our organizations and gives the user new access to functionality, for collaboration, that is critical to finding and securing grant funding. We are excited to partner with GRC to bring more value to the GRC campuses.”
Established in 1967, the AASCU Grants Resource Center (GRC) provides comprehensive research and sponsored programs information services designed to make faculty and administrators at member institutions more successful in the pursuit of federal and private funding.
