InfoEd Systems

InfoEd Global's products and services include an electronic research administration system that is integrated to enhance collaboration, streamline existing business processes, increase efficiency, and facilitate compliance. InfoEd has many solutions and The Citadel has made available the following modules to faculty and staff for research activities:

SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) - SPIN is a funding opportunity database that tracks research grants, fellowships, publication support, sabbatical support, curriculum development, and other programs from thousands of government, private, and nonprofit sources.

SMARTS (SPIN Matching And Research Transmittal Service) - As part of the SPIN service, SMARTS is an automated alert system, which notifies investigators of relevant new programs that match their research interests.

GENIUS (Global Expertise Network for Industry, University, and Scholars) – This module is a global network and database of scientific and scholarly expertise containing profiles entered and maintained by scholars and researchers at leading universities and research institutions throughout the world. The database promotes collaboration by allowing investigators to search globally for internal and external researchers in their field.

Proposal Development - The Proposal Development module enables the authorized organizational representatives to assemble and build the perfect application. Proposal Development supports internal routing and approval and manages electronic submissions.

Proposal Tracking - The Proposal Tracking module provides administrators and faculty with proposal and award data management capability along with comprehensive reporting features.
