Providence College Selects MŌDERAS FastTrak Cloud Solution for Grant Management

MŌDERAS is proud to announce Providence College's adoption of FastTrak; our cloud-based, low cost, turnkey eRA solution.

When Providence College initiated their eRA search it was important to find "an affordable, flexible solution that we could start small and grow with. FastTrak really stood out" said Kris Monahan, Director of Sponsored Research & Programs.

FastTrak is the only solution of its kind; providing a package of affordable and intelligent eRA solutions that can address all your research administration needs. FastTrak offers everything you need to embrace the most widely adopted electronic research administration (eRA) system available today, without the burden of a traditional implementation.

"Our first objective was to resolve the issues in our development, electronic routing, and reporting systems. We've found our existing systems to be both inefficient as well as very time consuming. Beyond that the goal was simple; make grants management easier and quicker providing more focus on faculty relations and less on redundant time-consuming paper processes," according to Monahan.

FastTrak is a fully functional solution that provides our partners the opportunity to be more effective, efficient, and to excel in their areas of expertise.
