The University of South Alabama (USA) is launching a project with Evisions to modernize administrative systems in support of research administration by leveraging Evisions’ Cayuse 424 and Cayuse SP solutions. A critical component of this initiative is maximizing the existing investments in campus IT infrastructure while providing new easy to use software for proposal development and submission. These new solutions will reduce administrative burden so that faculty and researchers can spend more time on investigation. Packaged integration will automate data transfer between the new systems and existing Banner® Finance modules.

Gina Hedberg, Director of Sponsored Projects Administration, comments, “The Office of Research and Economic Development has identified increasing the number of grant and contract proposals, especially those regarded as large and/or interdisciplinary proposals, as one of the key strategic objectives of 2013-2016. Partnering with Evisions for proposal development and multi-project submission supports that objective. Leveraging the integration with Banner Finance and other Banner supported systems will reduce duplicate data entry, align systems and improve procedures to support the strategic direction to achieve a Carnegie Very High (RU/VH) classification.”

USA selected the Evisions Research Suite following a thorough review of other products. A key factor in the decision was Evisions’ more than 16 years of development experience with Banner and a comprehensive suite of solutions supporting the sponsored projects lifecycle.
