Accountability and Resource Management System (ARMS)

ARMS is a powerful and easy to use web-based case management and labour force database system designed to meet the tracking and reporting requirements of service providers relating to employment, training, labour market development, apprenticeship, youth, residential, and social/community development. The system is used nationwide and successful in supporting federal and provincial programs, and can be easily customized to meet specific needs.

Indigenous Service Delivery

On the indigenous service delivery side, the system is widely used by more than 120 status and non-status first nations, metis, and inuit organizations to fulfill the requirements of the Indigenous Skills and Employment Training Program (ISETP). We have particular experience supporting past and present programs such as ISETP, ASETS, and SPF. As such, our staff can be an invaluable asset in understanding and meeting the requirements of these and other programs.  ARMS has also been partnered with Aboriginal Employment Services (AES Inc) since 2017 to support the federally funded Indigenous Labour Market Initiative involving development and implementation of data management tools and processes, and facilitate ongoing collection of labour market information.

Experienced Support

ARMS has been used by service delivery organizations since 2004. During that time it has continued to evolve and develop to better meet client needs. We are fully dedicated to supporting our customer base in using the system and meeting their organizational goals. ARMS staff have many years of experience in:

  • Development, management, and support of software systems;
  • Case management and employment counseling;
  • Evaluating social and human resource development programs; and
  • Accountability and administrative data analysis.

ARMS pricing consists of an affordable, one-time licensing and set-up fee, plus a monthly support and hosting fee. This pricing model is structured to support ongoing operations, maintenance and support of the system over time.

Typically when setting up ARMS for an organization, we review specific requirements and configure the system to best suit your needs. In some cases, where customization requires a significant departure from the standard ARMS configuration, there may be an additional charge. If changes of this magnitude are required, any cost implications are discussed with the client in advance.

Startup training for new ARMS clients is included in the initial licensing and set-up fee. Training may be conducted on-site, at our office, or via on-line web session. Additional training is available any time upon request. We are also able to meet special requirements, such as training in areas of human resources development, employment assistance and case management.


Support is available during regular business hours in all North American time zones from Monday-Friday, via our toll-free line or email.

Not only do we provide technical support using the system, but our staff can answer your questions about the case management and accountability process.

Additional ARMS training can also be arranged for users as needed.
