Portland, OR, March 7, 2022 – Cayuse, a global provider of the market-leading research administration cloud platform, and the University of Guam, a public land-grant university in Mangilao, Guam, have partnered to deliver enhanced research performance, streamlined processes, and improved analytics. To ensure full coverage over their research efforts, the team at the University of Guam selected several Cayuse products, including Sponsored Projects, Proposals, Project Effort, Outside Interests, and Fund Manager.

“Before considering Cayuse, we were using manual systems and processes,” shared Rachael T. Leon Guerrero, Ph.D., Vice Provost of Research and Sponsored Programs at the University of Guam. “Even after we shifted from a paper-based process to an in-house system, we still experienced inefficiencies.” Nothing was automated. There were no alerts or notifications to support the team. Many projects were managed in large spreadsheets with countless tabs, making it difficult and time-consuming for university staff to manage.

To effectively scale and strengthen their research program, the team needed a better solution. They decided to evaluate alternative cloud-based options that would provide a shared workspace for all stakeholders, as well as the ability to track awards, report on progress and activities, and empower their PIs. It was important for the research team to maintain a compliant and efficient research program to ensure their long-term success and satisfaction. After a meaningful evaluation process, the team at the University of Guam chose the Cayuse Research Suite.

“Cayuse fits our team and research program really well,” added Dr. Leon Guerrero. “We have big plans for our research program and need a solution that will support us at every stage of the process. After considering several options, Cayuse is the clear choice for us.”

With a centralized hub for research activities and data management, the team at the University of Guam will be better equipped to capture data more efficiently, track deadlines, streamline processes, improve communication and collaboration, eliminate duplicate entries, and automate notifications for greater visibility. It’s a true comprehensive research solution that will serve as the foundation for a strong research program for years to come.
