Scholarship grants management system for agricultural NGO, RUFORUM, with online applications with report filing (16 iterations)
Jul 2013 to Apr 2014
The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) required a management information system to store information on the people they work with and the grants they administer. The system that Aptivate built allows grant recipients to complete their reports online and for RUFORUM give feedback and to send automated reminders when reports are due.
RUFORUM is a consortium of 32 universities in Eastern, Central and Southern Africa with a mandate to oversee graduate training and networks of specialization in the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) countries.
This project kicked off with a discovery workshop to determine the project goals and the user stories for the first iteration. There was a complex multi-stakeholder workflow so we adapted our process to fit the clients needs.
