Soliant developed a custom FileMaker solution to organize the university's many grants and other forms of funding, record how long each one lasts, and project labor and material needs for each. These estimations helped create a realistic budget for professors' and grad students' salaries as well as needed supplies for the research.
Once a research project is started, the system helps the university track purchases made and monies spent with the funding every month to ensure they don't overspend. If they do, Soliant built a customized feature to help the university forecast implications and adjust the budget as necessary directly within the FileMaker solution.
As a result, the university can do more with each grant it earns. Monitoring all funding in one place minimizes details that fall through the cracks, which leads to stronger results from its research and growth for the institution.
