Aarhus Art Museum, Moesgaard Museum, and Aarhus Theatre. All of these organisations have enjoyed sizeable grant awards from Salling Funds. The fund supports a number of cultural, religious, sports, education, and charitable organisations. But as more and more organisations become aware of the fund, application volume has increased. In fact, the fund currently receives more than 800 grant applications every year, with each requiring a significant amount of administrative time and resources to manage.
To better facilitate these increasing workloads, the foundation invited three different companies to pitch their digital grant application processing solution. Following careful evaluation, Salling Funds chose OpenFlow as the clear winner. OpenFlow is a sophisticated solution for digital application processing, helping the organisation easily manage submissions and communications within one unified and automated platform. Applicants receive secure individual log-ins to manage instalment payments, review automated replies, and access a historical archive of their data, records, and communications.
OpenFlow didn’t just make work easier for one of the largest charitable foundations, we notably optimised their use of resources.
Trine Skjoldborg from Salling Funds said: "It is rare that a new IT system improves working conditions from day one. Openflow did precisely that. We can now handle the many grant applications much more efficiently than we use to, freeing resources for other tasks. The system is tailored 100 percent to our needs and provides a simple and open application process with integrated internal and external communications."
