Coastal Carolina University moves to continuous delivery with Kuali Research

By July 8, 2015 No Comments

Coastal Carolina University (CCU) is the latest higher education institution to move to the current version of Kuali Research–a continuously deployed SaaS solution–to manage the full lifecycle of sponsored research projects. With this move, CCU will put an end to expensive and disruptive upgrades, and instead deliver regular incremental improvements that delight users and increase effectiveness.

Kuali Research, formerly known as Kuali Coeus, gives CCU easy to use tools to simplify their research administration processes and provide a single source of data for reporting on all departments throughout campus. “As a primarily undergraduate institution, our research administration staff and resources are limited, but we have worked hard to successfully increase our research volume. Kuali Research provides a single reliable source for proposal, award, and compliance information along with enhanced oversight and visibility. The built-in reports and user-friendly functionality provide our staff more time to spend with faculty. We are pleased with the service, reliability, continuous improvements, and seamless upgrades which allow us to administer our research and compliance duties without downtime or delay,” said Bruxanne E. Hein, Director of Office of Research Services at Coastal Carolina University.

The comprehensive nature of the product helps institutions manage the full lifecycle of sponsored research projects including proposal preparation, review and approvals, proposal submission via, receipt and creation of awards, coordination of related compliance protocols, conflict of interest disclosures and management plans. Kuali Research also includes an embedded comprehensive ad hoc reporting tool, which enables users to quickly access their research related data and produce meaningful, accurate, up-to-date reports.

Kuali Research is the only open source research administration product developed in collaboration with more than 40 higher education research institutions, and Kuali is the only company that delivers Kuali Research as a SaaS solution. The deeply engaged community of research administration professionals are national and international leaders who influence policy and direction while lending their knowledge and insight to the most comprehensive product in the market. Kuali compliments this engaged community with high quality design, engineering, and SaaS delivery. The result is an affordable and trusted solution that helps higher ed institutions optimize their research enterprise.

“We’re thrilled that CCU has made this move,” said David Usher, Kuali Research Product Manager. “They join a growing number of colleges and universities that now enjoy a continuously improving product that helps research administration professionals do their jobs better, and with greater efficiency and insight each time we add new features or improve performance in the software.”
