Compared to SurveyMonkey Apply, Submittable is more highly-rated on trusted software review sites for ease of use.

Submittable vs. Wizehive

Wizehive relies on plugins to do many things, including auto emails, bulk emails, charity validation, third party references, assignments management, and creating submitter and reviewer portals. 

Submittable, on the other hand, offers all of these capabilities out-of-the-box—no need to set anything up. Which is part of why Submittable is more highly-rated on trusted software review sites.

Submittable vs. Fluxx

Implementing Fluxx’s grantmaking software is a time-intensive process, and administrators on Fluxx also need to write in code. Additionally, Fluxx is only partially mobile-responsive for applicants.

Programs on Submittable’s grant management software can be up and running fast. Administrators never need to write code, and Submittable is fully mobile-responsive.

Submittable vs. Google Forms 

Google Forms is a very popular free form builder used to collect surveys and simple applications. 

For teams who make decisions on submissions, Submittable’s far more robust feature suite—encompassing in-app communication, simple and custom reviews, charity validation, workflow automation tools, and reporting—is a better solution.

Submittable vs. Blackbaud Grantmaking
