About Us

Social Services Technology Solutions was born when a group of social workers, educators, and technologists gathered and decided that there had to be a better way to solve some basic problems for the care-giving industries.

The team brainstormed regarding human services and social services processes that were paper-based and inefficient and decided to try and modernize these approaches.

Why couldn't human services workers and social services workers fill out forms on a laptop, tablet, or mobile phone in the field and provides resources and a better outcome for clients...without having to go back to the office to help their clients?

Thus apps were born. Geographically-easy resources and services were found and provided to clients. Paper-based records were replaced by encrypted databases. Data analysis allowed human service providers and social workers to "get ahead of the problems" and know how to help clients in need.
