News and information about InfoReady

The InfoReady story

In 2012, our founder and CEO was invited to submit a proposal for a software solution that would enable the University of Michigan Medical School to manage their internal review processes. Their existing workflow involved using paper forms, emails, and spreadsheets. All this work led to slow turnaround times and missed opportunities. They urgently needed a solution.

After successfully building the software platform, the InfoReady team realized: if one of the largest research universities in the nation was using cobbled-together tools to select winning proposals involving millions of dollars in grants, then all of higher ed likely faced a similar challenge.

Our survey of the broader market proved that we were right. There was no other existing software solution designed to meet the specific needs of higher education institutions. This led to the founding of the InfoReady platform for the higher-ed market.

While the software was originally built for administrative teams to review and select limited submissions and grant applications, InfoReady was so flexible and easy to use that administrators started stretching the boundaries of the software. We soon found them using it for dozens of different selection, approval, and form processes.

​Since then, InfoReady has grown substantially and is now used by over 200 clients, representing half of America’s largest research universities, along with many state universities, small colleges, and international institutions. Medical institutions, foundations, corporations, and government agencies also use InfoReady.
