User Reviews of OpenWater

Submitted on January 17th, 2022 by Konnie Dulu

It’s easy to use, is developed for grant professionals and their needs, our applicants have detailed yet simple applications they can finish in a single sitting. The print out for the reviewers is also really nice and our reviewers can easily add their scores and comments. So simplistically manageable.
