Before OpenWater, we struggled a bit managing our numerous awards programs. We had a combination of email based applications and home built web-based forms that lacked the simplicity and sophistication our staff and members deserved. That all has changed with OpenWater. We not only use it for our awards programs, but also for grants, fellowships and generally anything that requires an application or judging process. All of this in one central system that integrates nicely with our association management system.
Our members and reviewers love it!

OpenWater is a company that treats you with a personal touch and we find that of great value. We have enjoyed the relationship we have built with them and have come to rely on them for the support that we need to continue to grow our program.

OpenWater’s abstract and session management solution works really well for AAG. We are very pleased with the flexibility of the platform and the responsiveness of the development team. Our business rules are complex, and OW was able to understand these rules and work with them. Collaboration with the OW team is easy. I can pick up a phone or shoot an email and things get done. You won’t be disappointed.
American Association of Geographers
We made the choice to go with OpenWater for our Fellowship designation because of the flexibility and simplicity that the platform has to offer. We’re proud of the Fellowship nomination experience that we’ve been able to build for our members on the OpenWater platform.
Making the switch to OpenWater made our grants and awards process so much easier!
OpenWater helped set up the application and the review process and we have received rave reviews from our users. We are also exploring using them in the future for our abstract submissions! Thank you OpenWater! We look forward to continuing to work with you on our future programs.
