SmartSimple Software Launches SmartSimple Cloud +AI, Revolutionising the Grants Management Lifecycle with Advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI)

SmartSimple Software, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for grants management, announced the launch of SmartSimple Cloud +AI earlier this month. This ground-breaking product introduces transformative, end-to-end AI support throughout the entire grant management lifecycle, streamlining the process and further reducing administrative burden.

SmartSimple Cloud +AI is the first fully integrated AI product for grants management. It deeply integrates AI-powered text completion, the same functionality popularised by OpenAI's ChatGPT-3, into grants management workflows. The product leverages SmartSimple Cloud's powerful architecture to enable grantmakers to deploy AI throughout the entire grant process.

SmartSimple Cloud +AI responds to both human and workflow-initiated queries, supporting grantmakers across all stages of the granting lifecycle. It seamlessly integrates into the SmartSimple Cloud experience, allowing users to interact with AI within the SmartSimple Cloud user interface.

"We believe that the advent of the AIs will release a torrent of innovation such as the world has rarely seen," said Mike Reid, SmartSimple Software Co-Founder and COO. "By integrating the AIs into our platform, SmartSimple Cloud, and integrating early, we will unleash this power to our clients in support of their missions."

As SmartSimple Cloud +AI is a new technology, there is still much to be explored in terms of potential uses. However, several strengths include the ability to supplement and enrich data in real-time, perform precise and automatic text summarisation, and enable personalised communication on a large scale.

We envision clients applying AI throughout the entire granting lifecycle, including:

Using SmartSimple Cloud +AI at the program creation and registration stage to create program summaries, suggesting call-specific questions, shortlisting applicants to be invited to specific calls, flagging ineligible applicants based on program criteria and applicant profile data, performing duplicate checks, auto-completing user profile data on their behalf, and performing due diligence checks.

During the grant application and review stages, AI can assist grantees through the application process, write detailed application summaries, make spelling and

grammar corrections, generate committee board books with narrative summaries, create personalised thank you notes, suggest applications to review, and perform instant language translations.

During the award and post-award stages, AI can create award and declination letters based on the decision inputs, write narratives based on report responses, generate grant annotations, and summarise requested revisions.

SmartSimple Cloud +AI enables each workflow to be enriched by AI in a manner unique for each organisation. This allows for the further customisation of workflows to meet the specific needs of each grant program, providing a more tailored experience for both administrators and applicants.

SmartSimple Cloud +AI leverages advanced AI functionality using large language models (LLMs) such as OpenAI and Google Bard and will support other AI services as they become available.

SmartSimple Cloud +AI is now available for preview and can be subscribed to through the SmartSimple Cloud Marketplace. Contact to see it in action and learn more.

You can also register to join a webinar with SmartSimple Co-Founder & CEO, Eric Lauer, and Director, Platform Solutions, Greg Stanley, as they share insights on how SmartSimple Cloud +AI can enhance your organisational processes and enrich your operational data with AI in the context of your work. Just make sure you register using your organisation email to ensure entry.
