Jan 22, 2008 (10:01 AM EST)

PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- eCivis, the leader in improving grants performance, today announced the addition of KnowledgeBase to its growing Grants Network community of online applications and resources for grant-active organizations. KnowledgeBase is an online software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering that provides online training courses specifically developed to meet the needs of the grants community; short, easy-to-understand publications written by professionals involved in all aspects of the grants process; and professional service offerings that extend the online experience to your work site as desired.

"KnowledgeBase gives our team members what they have requested the most: an easy, efficient tool to help them strengthen their grant proposal skills in any subject, whenever they want to learn it," said Amy Shankland, Grant Coordinator for the City of Noblesville, Indiana. "Whether a team member is a beginner or has more advanced grant skills, this program quickly offers valuable information and training."

eCivis KnowledgeBase contains a Grant Skills section, designed to assist individuals in increasing and improving their grant-related knowledge and skills. The Organizational Development section focuses on the characteristics of a successful grants organization and provides instruction on how to build one. Both sections provide materials for beginners and advanced users. A Publications Search tool allows users to search the extensive library of publications, and a Glossary is provided to help users understand the sometimes confusing world of grants.

"KnowledgeBase fills a critical gap for our Grants Network online community," said Omie Ismail, eCivis CEO. "More than 80% of government staffers who research, write, and manage grants have had little or no grants training. Even veteran grants professionals may have gaps in their knowledge or organizational inefficiencies. KnowledgeBase can dramatically change the landscape and tenor of an organization's grants activity by raising efficiency and skill levels, resulting in greater success and satisfaction from all stakeholders."
