Technology Shift to The Cloud

Cloud computing is software delivered via internet without the need for in-house servers or system maintenance and can be the best resource when it comes to solving hosting fee and security challenges.

In December 2010, a "Cloud First" policy was issued in the U.S. requiring agencies to give priority to cloud-based applications and services where possible to lower costs. With federal & local government budgets being reduced, more organizations using cloud technology to run their systems in order to do more with less.

Participation has a Platform

Class was designed in the 80s to solve the 80s problems like automation and in-person registration lines. Today your community demands more from you as their lives demand more from them.

The ACTIVE Net solution is designed through the lens of participant. ACTIVE Net solves the challenges of a modern world by providing access and tools that help increase participation. Our technology combines the best of past tools with new engagement features that scale to meet increasing customer demands.

With ACTIVE Net you can see the full family, while having the ability to easily transfer family members as the family unit changes. Transferred individual members retain their history and settings so that you don’t lose any insight.

A 360◦ customer view allows staff to track everything on a single record, improving client relations and the customer service experience.
