What is a grant tracking app?

A grant tracking application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that enables users to track grants they are applying for or have applied for. Grant tracking apps usually include an interface for users to create and edit their personal profiles and submit proposals. The app may also provide administrative features that enable administrators to view the performance of all grant applicants and assess the progress of each proposal at any time during the proposal lifecycle.

Grant tracking apps are similar to project management apps, accounting apps, and accounting software. Popular grant tracking applications include FreeAgent, Wave Accounting, and Xero.

How to successfully grow your grant tracking application

A grant tracking app can increase user growth by providing an easy way for users to keep track of the grants that they are applying for and the status of their application. Because they are used by a wide range of people in different industries, grant tracking apps have a large number of potential users that are not motivated to pay for subscription fees. However, the limited functionality of these apps means that they need to find ways to provide value at no cost. In order to do this, they typically provide high-quality customer support and analytics data on grants that users have applied for in the past.

Risks and challenges of building a grant tracking application

Grant tracking apps are subject to a variety of risks, including failure to obtain the necessary government approvals, inaccurate data entry, and the loss of sensitive information. Before developing your grant tracking app, you will want to conduct an audit of your organization’s internal processes to ensure that your app will be able to accurately track all relevant data. In addition, it is recommended that your app store user data locally on each device in encrypted form (or leverage a trusted cloud-based storage provider), and provide users with a mechanism for securely deleting all of their data at any time.
