Managing a program with several submission rounds is a feature needed for almost all kinds of calls for applications. The multi-round funnel allows you to break down the applications and judging process into phases, each with a set of requirements based on the progress of participants in the applications funnel. But how hectic could it be to filter and move applications from one stage to another? Also, to set up forms and judging criteria, and involving certain users for each round.
At Untap Compete, we are experts in multi-round programs management, we crafted the multi-round tool to optimize applications and judging workflows and significantly cut down administration time. This feature was introduced to our software in its early stages, and over the years our round engine has become the most intuitive, powerful, and easy-to-use tool for different types of programs.
If you are running a contest with academic or theoretical focus, you might need to start with a project abstract phase that is open for public, then based on the submissions quality, shortlist a number of applications and require design report submission, then finally a final report submission phase that decides the winners.
For a startup competition, you might need to create an initial applications round, then an interviews round, and based on the interviews evaluations, the best startups get invited to the Bootcamp phase, and so and forth.
Our multi-round feature allows you to easily run as many application rounds as you need, qualifying participants from one phase to another and setting different evaluation criteria that fit every stage of the funnel. And most importantly manage the whole process in one place efficiently saving time and effort. How so?
