OpenWater is trusted by top universities

The ease of use for managing multiple award programs has been great. Templates can be used between different programs and are easy to construct as well as reuse. Over the past 2 years I've managed 7 different programs; sector-focused awards, broad campus-wide applications, rolling basis grant applications, post-award grant reporting progress tools.
