Los Angeles, Ca. – March 20, 2017 – foundationConnect, a Salesforce-based grants management solution (GMS), celebrates over 25 percent growth in implementations in 2016. As of March 2017, over 100 grant making foundations use the solution that is natively built on the Salesforce platform.
Offered by roundCorner, foundationConnect enables foundations to streamline grant making and improve collaboration. The solution empowers its customers with the tools to focus more on their mission and less on administration. With the growth, foundationConnect achieved the Salesforce Platinum App Innovation Partner designation, a partnership level awarded based on revenue contribution and customer success. It is the highest designation product companies in the ecosystem achieve.
In a survey, conducted for the 2016 Idealware Consumers Guide to Grants Management Systems, 90 percent of respondents said they would recommend foundationConnect to other foundations. Ursula Stewart, Grants Manager and System Administrator at the New York State Health Foundation and long-standing foundationConnect customer, attests. “foundationConnect has high quality features and high quality performance. It has immeasurable options for the system to be enhanced to each organization’s unique needs. As such, it guides our foundation into the direction we want to go, and beyond.”
To enable customers to become even more successful with foundationConnect, and to scale product innovation, roundCorner expands the team to allow for an increased development capacity. In addition to investing in resources, roundCorner is investing in foundationConnect’s code infrastructure. As a result, new and existing developer resources plan to deliver product enhancements and new features with each product release. For example, a new Outcomes and Impact Tracking Module, Panel Review functionalities, and enhancements to Grantee Budget capabilities. This year, at least 20 foundations plan to launch foundationConnect.
