Accountability and Resource Management System (ARMS)

ARMS is a powerful and easy to use web-based system designed to meet the tracking and reporting requirements of government funded service providers relating to employment, training, labour market development, apprenticeship, and social/community development. The system is widely used and successful in supporting different federal and provincial programs, and can be easily customized to meet specific needs. It is widely used to meet the requirements of Service Canada funded programs such as Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS), and Skills and Partnership Fund (SPF).

Serving our customers for more than a decade

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.

Pricing

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.
