Real People. Impactful Programs. Relevant Solutions.

Applied Research & Evaluation Technologies Group

Technology Solutions

The market is flooded with software products that meet narrow programmatic and project-based needs. Out-of-the-box technology tools often fail to fully understand the community-specific needs, inputs, environmental factors, and assumptions that support a complete picture of program logic. As a result, systems often fall short in meeting complex social problems with relevant technology solutions. ARET Group is a social enterprise company comprised of real people (researchers, evaluators, and technology experts) with experience shaping impactful community programs.
With over a decade of large-scale applied experience, informing our unique approach to community-based evaluation and research, ARET Group has a vision for solving complex social problems in public and nonprofit organizations using flexible and customizable software tools. Our vision is to meet specific needs using ‘first principle’ concepts in evaluation and research for technology design. We believe this approach is a critical step toward addressing systemic issues of equitable access to programming and achieving favorable outcomes among diverse target populations.
All of our research applications comply with Good Documentation Practices (GDP) and ALCOA+C standards for electronic data management. We work with sites to carefully rate and segment personally identifiable information and take steps to ensure subject confidentiality. These are the technology solutions we have found programs and projects need to be successful:

Case Management

Integrated case notes, program referral tracking, task prioritization, and assessment tools to help manage complex hierarchical associations and wrap- around services.

Form Management

Supporting complex survey instrumentation designs and form validation schemes, including integrated systems for supporting longitudinal data tracking.

Data Analytics

Programs increasingly need an instant feedback loop to leverage data quickly for enhanced public accountability, mission-critical decision-making, and grant compliance.

Dashboard Services

Program and project managers must keep the big picture in mind as they advance specific goals, which can be supported by live dashboard tools.

Ethical Standards for Data Management

Heightened public and funder accountability requires the highest standards are met to ensure ethical procedures for maintaining sensitive client information.

Access to Data

Generate simple processes for retrieving de-identified case by row data for programs seeking to generalize findings, build evidence basis, and reduce processing costs.

Digital Transformation Services

Re-imagine and upgrade a legacy system to align with current organizational objectives and pivot quickly to meet emerging needs.
