What makes eCivis different?

Our Focus

We know what we're good at. Grants management is not the same across all industries and neither are the numerous grant management systems that serve these different industries. At eCivis, we focus on state, local and tribal governments. That's what we're very good at. See our customers.

What's the ROI on eCivis?

Return on investment (ROI) is one of our most commonly asked questions. There are several economic benefits that our clients have communicated to us in different areas, including:

  • Increased grant funding from various sources (federal, state, and private foundations)
  • Lower administrative and compliance costs to manage grants
  • Decrease in returned grant dollars from audit findings or disallowed costs
  • Improved reporting efficiency through powerful grants management tools
  • Less data entry — resulting from integrated data from financial systems - and increase capacity
  • Improved overall productivity for staff
  • Ability to better collaborate/coordinate funding for future projects and programs within the organization

How much does eCivis cost?

Our cost is based on the number of users and types of services you select. We do not price based on population or revenue. Online training and dedicated support is included in that price.

Our contracts start at $5,200 and increase based on users and features. Our smallest contacts are for a small number of users (less than 3). Our largest contracts have thousands of users across dozens of departments. Many of our enterprise clients manage 1,000+ projects each year.

Prices have increased each year due to the number of new products we release so contact us to get an accurate price.
