GrantApproval software saves Local Authorities much needed administrative time, helps to prevent fraudulent applications, can be adapted for any Local Authority Grants and can send payments to approved grants at a click of a button.
With the announcement of government grants to aid businesses in early 2020 we developed and built GrantApproval.co.uk from the ground up within a month and were accepting claims within weeks of the grants launching.
Excellent Fraud Detection
Alongside GrantApproval, we have built a section in our Ascendant Portal to process claims made within GrantApproval. We developed a RAG system which analyses each claim to cross reference its data with previous claims to highlight any fraudulent activity. This gives Local Authorities ability to prevent fraudulent claims.
We have developed the GrantApproval software to allow Local Authorities to fully customise their settings, this allows them to set up multiple grant schemes, all with the relevant information that they require, to be able to quickly approve or decline an application. Having the ability to create new applications forms within the portal, allows Local Authorities to set up new grant application forms quickly, and can enable or disable any grant application form with the click of a button.
Our GrantApproval software is accessible to users via our Ascendant Online Portal. We provide Local Authorities with a link for Grant applications which can be added to their website or communications, Local Authorities are then able to access the applications through their portal login.
Features included within GrantApproval
In the GrantApproval application process users can create accounts using valid email addresses to provide a guaranteed line of contact.
Local Authorities can then tailor the application questions to include sessions such as:

Once users’ applications have been approved or denied they will receive an automatic email detailing the outcome.

“With the pressure to deliver grant aid to businesses, at pace, many authorities collected the data required on a web form and then manually processed the applications. By using Grant Approval an automated system by Ascendant Solutions, we significantly reduced the staff resource required, prevented fraudulent applications and got the payments to most businesses within four working days of an application, supporting our local economy.”
