Make managing state grants and funds a breeze
Do you want to ensure transparency, efficiency, flexibility and a high level of reliability/security in the processing and disbursement of governmental pools, funds and grants?
Are you better at finding the waste bin?
In recent years, we have seen more and more examples of how society is trying to influence us to move in a certain direction. Such as in supermarkets where the fresh vegetable and fruit sections keep growing, or on the street where waste bins are suddenly brightly coloured and where footsteps are painted on the pavement to show us where they are. All of these measures are nudging us to do the right thing. Buy more vegetables. Dispose of our waste in a bin.
From waste bins to broadband and green energy
This mechanism isn’t new. For years it was used on not only a small scale but also to create bigger societal trends. In Denmark, we also have a long-standing tradition of using our comprehensive grants system to create social change. Our grants system is a solid foundation on which Danish society and the Danish economy rest. The public sector can use grants, pools and funds to nudge society in a certain direction. Directions and needs change with governments and general societal trends – in some cases at unexpected speed. Common to all directions, however, is that by providing financial assistance to defined areas, we can influence our society. This is one of the oldest, most well-developed development mechanisms in Denmark.
The public grants system provides financial support for all of Denmark. The system supports everything from fast broadband throughout Denmark, energy-efficiency for detached homes and encouraging workplaces to hire refugees – to name just a few.
The public grants system is versatile and complex, as such systems usually are. We know that. We are familiar with the processes, the requirements and the legislation. Because we have assisted a quite a number of public organisations in streamlining, simplifying and stabilising their grants administration.
It’s not quite that simple – or is it?
When you need to transfer money from A to B today, you probably use MobilePay or a wireless credit card. It’s easy, stimulating and fast. When it comes to disbursing grants from one of the many governmental pools and funds, however, the process gets a bit more complicated. In the following, we describe a few more steps to go through before it is possible to ‘just’ transfer money from A to B.
At Formpipe, however, we know that it is not quite that simple. We also know, however, that an efficient process starts by simplifying it for applicants. A simple, efficient application process ensures flawless, complete applications, which in turn streamlines the administration of the ensuing steps.
We also know that adding elements such as GDPR, changing legislation, new pools and funds and new reporting and follow-up requirements require experience and expertise in order to overcome the worst obstacles along the way – both during implementation and operation.
We simplify complex processes
For more than 20 years, Formpipe has been delivering solutions to meet the changing needs encountered by our customers. To say the least, portals and GDPR were substantially less important at the beginning of this millennium than they are now, where we are providing state-of-the-art solutions to ensure efficient administration, full GDPR support and complete control of your data quality. Over the past twenty years, we have seen and supported almost everything – from simple to complex – and automated it in the process!
Our solutions are based on standard software with a profusion of basic functionality and a capability for creating the right solution through a flexible blend of the available modules. Sound interesting? Then let us tell you a little more about how we ensure efficient disbursement of state grants.
Grants GPS shows the way
It all starts with an intuitive application portal. At this point in the process, it is essential to make it easy for the applicant to get it right. Intuitive usability is essential for the applicant’s positive journey through grants territory. Getting from A to B must be simple. The applicant must be led by the hand and guided on his/her way. We help you do this. Applicants need to be presented with a simple overview where it is easy to identify themselves and their tasks, and then communicate with the public authority whenever necessary.
And needless to say, the funding must be under control. Formpipe provides efficient, tried, tested and reliable financial management where the money can be monitored all the way from the finance bill to each individual NemKonto. Efficiently and reliably, with the requisite follow-up and reporting – making sure that the correct funding goes to the correct purposes and that everything is documented along the way.
The buffet is open – it’s up to you
To ensure efficient administration, the entire process can all be configured and adapted to your organisation and individual workflows, obviously drawing on and inspired by our experienced best practices. The common feature of the whole solution is that we automate wherever this adds value and keep things manual wherever this is preferable.
And then we made everything easy to purchase. A modular breakdown makes sure that you can suffice with buying what you need. You can also make your purchase via SKI agreements, enabling you to get off to an easy start. We help you achieve your goals – as we’ve done many times before – and we look forward to focusing on your specific needs.
