When the program was presented to me first, I was kind of scared, lost in different options, but when you get to work with it and understand the basic principle everything seems very easy and useful. There is also a team, which is ready to assist you any time . Perfect !
☺ I like the system a lot but the strongest part of it is the reporting option. User is able to generate different kinds of reports and get necessary data without trouble. You can also generate Financial report based on IFRS standards. Also , I like the Preset option, which can be adjusted to one's everyday needs and makes routine operations easy and fast
☹There are several steps to post data in the system : evaluation, approve etc.. It takes time to go through them but I guess the steps are necessary
☺This software is comprehensive, easy to find any information about contacts, grants, payment request and etc.
Easy to find linked information from one section to another.
Automatically find information in SND list, when creating PR.
☹This software works and thinks a bit slowly
☺The software is designed according to IFRS standards and it's easy to use.
☹I don't like that free JE has only 2 lines and it's mandatory that Dr and Cr has the same T codes. Very often we need to book the JE with more than 2 lines and different T codes .
Professional Accounting Software
☺Easy to use, very good security and search functions,
best team supporting users , easy tax calculation and reporting module
☹it takes little bit more time before final posting
Positive review from grants manager
The Hope team is very helpful and always respond on time, solves if any issues rise and provides different options for solutions.
☺It helps in grants management for the whole cycle of the grant, from registering the application, evaluation, reporting and close out of the grant project. It gives opportunity to analyze the budgets of the grant projects, compare the approved amounts vs. reported/paid/modified, if any. Hope gives opportunity to allocate several donor fundings for the project. In addition, the most important is that financial transactions are automatically sent for approval to finance department based on the grantee's expense reports.
The steps of the grant management are sent for approval among different staff members (Financial manager, grants manager, accountant).
Also, the databases can be download from the spreadsheet in excel format. Also, it helps to check the contacts in terrorist checklists, which is automatically done during every payment request.
Overall, it is software that helps on every step of grants cycle and makes monitoring process easier.
☹It needs time during the proceeding of the whole steps, however this gives opportunity for control each step. Overall, HOPE is helpful for our organisation, it has all functions that are needed for grants administration. In case there is need of any additional function HOPE team provides support.
Acceptable program for grant management
It is acceptable
☺I did find it easy to integrate the program in my work as it is quite similar to the one I used before.
☹The program is very slow. Search option needs some improvements.
