TurboGrants is the best way to get your investigators to adopt your new eRA solution. It’s an interface developed with them in mind. A casual user who logs in randomly can quickly and easily create a proposal with absolutely no training whatsoever. The system works the way they do, it speaks the way they do, it understands what they want and how to give it to them.
The system is highly configurable allowing you to set what fields are required to save as well as which are required to submit to your office when the investigator is ready to hand it of to you. the text can be modified to use your particular dialect to make them comfortable and the values in drop down fields flow from your settings in the proposal development module.
If you want an interface that will make it easy to have your investigators create their own proposals TurboGrants is the product you’re looking for.
