Grant management system for The Royal Society

Bespoke grant management system helps charity find new revenue stream

Due to the popularity of The Royal Society’s various grant schemes, the decision was made to invest in a modern replacement on an outdated grant management system.

Business need: Improve grant management process

The Royal Society is the pre-eminent organisation supporting scientific advance, with worldwide renown. Amongst other activities, the Society manages a substantial funding programme for the benefit of researchers. Due to the popularity of their grant schemes, the Society’s existing system was inefficient so the decision was made to invest in a replacement. 

Solution: Development of bespoke grant management application

We secured the project on the basis of our experience developing bespoke systems for the third sector and our thorough understanding of The Royal Society's business needs. We worked closely with the staff on the project and delivered within budget.

Results: New revenue stream for the Society

The software was so successful that the Society has since re-sold the database to other similar grant-making institutions such as the British Academy and our work has led to further support and development projects with the Society.

"The Support team at MSM do an excellent job of ensuring several developers have intimate knowledge of the system at all times and the work they do is always to a high standard. I couldn't be happier with the quality of their work and the commitment they show to responding to our changing needs. I can highly recommend the services at MSM Software."
