Effort Administrator is an internet-based time and effort certification and reporting solution for administrators and research faculty. Designed like an on-line banking system, it works with your existing pre-award, accounting, and payroll systems to create a powerful, easy-to-use effort certification and reporting tool. Effort Administrator employs drill down technology to retrieve and update information. Faculty and research staff can then review and certify their own effort as well as the effort of their research team. Institution administrators can oversee the certification process sections such as college, department, division, or program.
A stand alone system, Effort Administrator does not require any additional software to work with your ERP solutions, but is designed to integrate seamlessly with the entire suite of IT Works software products.
