ERS was looking for a sustainable solution to support full process of their Fellowship programme
(existing types like short, long term but also be able to configure and adapt to new future types) to:
Replace manipulation of multiple office documents
Decrease manual work
Target to automate the full life cycle
Because of new strategy, ERS was waiting an increase of volume from 150 to 1,000 applications in a year.
In order to support this progression, key points of targeted system were scalability, flexibility, dashboards, reporting and automation.
Based on our strong references on abstracts management tools (supporting submission, reviewing, notification processes also provided to ERS),
we have decided to re-use this engine and adapt it to the ERS Fellowship context:
More data managed and several files attached, specific workflows with different deadlines, automatic eligibility check procedure, budget calculation and payments agenda generation, reportings
integration in ERS environment
(website, authentication via myERS portal)
Around 500 applications managed on 7 different type of Fellowship programme
ERS Fellowship users: 3
