Application Development


ICTS develops software that bridges the gap between what you need and existing solutions. The custom solution will integrate with existing software (R, SPSS, Excel) to speed up the process of data processing and results sharing.

ICTS can also create a prototype and detailed technology plan to be included in a grant application. For grant awardees, a custom solution that meets your grant’s deadlines and providers ongoing support can be developed.
