Grants. Ethics. Research. Reimagined
Powerful game changers
Any organisation that gives or receives grants requires strong and consistent management reporting capabilities. OmniStar Grants creates a single source of truth that provides real-time and historical information to stakeholders around funds management, compliance, governance and audit. It automates much of the process, simplifying audit and optimising reporting, communication and analytics. OmniStar Grants allows staff and stakeholders to perform higher-value work whilst ensuring confidence in processes, project management and informing important decisions with meaningful data.
OmniStar Ethics, the first research management system to integrate fully with NHMRC’s Human Research Ethics Application, streamlines, automates and brings consistency into areas such as approval management, clinical research governance, compliance, biosafety and audit. OmniStar Ethics has inbuilt analytics features to help institutions collect performance metrics that inform evidence-based decisions, encourage strong compliance and governance and support strategic planning as well as project management.
OmniStar Research is an intelligent, integrated research management system that transforms the entire lifecycle of research into one central, transparent platform. With customisable, grant-specific workflows – including round set-up, eligibility check, award notification, milestones, acquittals, and more – it offers institutions powerful workflow benefits. These include time sequencing of changes, attachments and other vital data, real-time data visualisation, milestone and project management with customisable, automated reporting options.
