Portland, OR, January 24, 2022:   Cayuse, a global provider of the market-leading research administration cloud platform, has partnered with multi-sector university of technology, design, and enterprise, RMIT University, in Melbourne, Australia, to deliver a world-class research administration experience for RMIT researchers.  

The Cayuse Research Suite will help researchers prepare budgets, manage their research funding, and curate information presented in their RMIT research profile, and will include the Cayuse Platform, Funded Projects, Repository, and Fund Manager.

“Cayuse’s local presence in the Australian market provides new alternatives for research systems, and we are thrilled to be a part of the RMIT global community,” commented Rich Forrest, SVP of Global Operations at Cayuse. 

“With a consistent and enhanced user experience, and several key solutions that could be easily scaled to meet the evolving needs of the institution, adoption of this market-leading technology solution will support the University’s increased research volume and impact research and the research community now and into the future.” 

RMIT Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Innovation, Professor Calum Drummond AO said RMIT was excited to work with Cayuse to deliver a world class research administration experience for researchers and professional staff.  

RMIT’s research footprint has doubled in the last five years and the existing technology ecosystem couldn’t grow with us,” Drummond said. 

“By selecting a world leading partner in research administration like Cayuse, we are future- proofing ourselves to be able to efficiently manage and pursue research opportunities that deliver outcomes that help shape the world.” 

“RMIT researchers will now have greater visibility throughout the entire process and can be assured the information they are seeing is current and accurate.”  

“The University will benefit greatly from having a holistic view of all research activity occurring across the Colleges, allowing RMIT to more accurately identify and target opportunities with higher potential while also ensuring they maintain their reporting obligations with reduced overhead and greater accuracy.”
