BALTIMORE, MD.—Social Solutions, the leading provider of performance management software for human and social services, has been cited by the American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF) as a leader in the field of youth services performance management.
In AYPF’s December 2012 report, Beyond the Numbers: Data Use for Continuous Improvement of Programs Serving Disconnected Youth, AYPF examines how three of the country’s leading youth services providers use data and Social Solutions’ Efforts to Outcomes (ETO™) software to manage program performance. The report profiles Roca, Our Piece of the Pie, Inc., and the Diploma Plus National Network and how each has been able to enhance its program model and have greater impact on the youth it serves through use of ETO software.
Additionally, Social Solutions is recognized for its deep knowledge of the human services field. “Given that many programs in the field have implemented this platform, the three profiled organizations reported that Social Solutions’ knowledge of the field proved useful in the customization process, providing a cost saving measure for programs without deep data knowledge,” the report states (p. 36).

A webinar featuring members of the three profiled service providers will be held Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 2 pm ET. During the webinar, key findings from the report will be discussed . Click here to register.
