Friday, January 15, 2016

MŌDERAS is proud to announce Salt Lake Community College’s adoption of FastTrak; our cloud-based, low cost, turnkey eRA solution.

When Salt Lake Community College initiated their eRA search it was important to find “a viable solution that accommodated our smaller portfolio but offered functionality similar to what a research institution would want,” said Ashley R. Riggleman, Grant Technology Officer.
FastTrak is a unique solution; providing a package of affordable and intelligent eRA solutions that can address all your research administration needs.  FastTrak offers everything you need to embrace the most widely adopted electronic research administration (eRA) system available today, without the burden of a traditional implementation.
Riggleman states, “We were looking for an affordable product that would allow us to streamline our processes and would allow us to gather more meaningful data on the work we are doing. MŌDERAS does that and more.”
FastTrak is a fully functional solution that provides our partners the opportunity to be more effective, efficient, and to excel in their areas of expertise.
