The Proven Leader in Grants Management Solutions

In 1997, Agate Software revolutionized grants management with the development and implementation of the SIGMA financial grant management system for Michigan’s Crime Victim Services Commission (CVSC). SIGMA marked the first time in the State’s history that a grant program was managed via the World Wide Web. Agate Software extended their technology innovation with SIGMA 2.0 by introducing a web interface for applicants of CVSCs Victims of Crime Act grant. This marked the first time in Michigan’s history that grant applications were submitted, approved, and tracked online.

As a result of the SIGMA projects, Agate Software developed the Michigan Electronic Grant System (MEGS) for the Michigan Department of Education. The technologies used to build MEGS evolved into the first edition of IntelliGrants™ software. IntelliGrants is currently in its’ fifth release, and continues to lead the Grants Management software industry through product innovation and exceptional implementation services.
