May 2006 - London
The Rugby Football Foundation (RFF) has launched a web application based on Evenlogic’s eForms software that enables rugby clubs to apply for funding over the internet.
The Rugby Football Foundation, a charitable trust set up by the Rugby Football Union (RFU) to promote and develop community rugby, has two capital funding streams - a ground match scheme that provides grants of up to GBP5,000 and an interest free loan scheme that provides loans up to GBP100,000. Clubs wishing to apply for funding need to complete a corresponding 20-page application form. Evenlogic has converted these forms into PDF electronic forms and installed them on a web server with a tailored version of Evenlogic’s eForms server software.
Using their web browser, applicants can fill-in the forms and submit their application over the web. Each application is password protected and prior to submission, users can save partially or fully completed forms to the web server. The forms can then be returned to later for further work, not only by the original applicant but by associates working at different locations. When a completed form is submitted, a final PDF version is created on the server automatically and emailed to the RFU for evaluation, and to the applicant for their records.
The system is a .NET application and is hosted by Evenlogic on an eForms server.
Ross Baxter of the Funding and Facilities Team at the RFU said “This is a major step forward in our efforts to help our clubs access RFF funding.”
Evenlogic’s managing director, John Jarvis said “We see this as a flagship eForms project in the sports sector and anticipate many sporting and other organisations will now adopt this approach for providing access to funds.”
