Agile Technology Solutions (ATS) helps public agencies develop high-volume, highly scalable, and multi-device-compatible Software as a Service (SaaS) web applications to meet public needs. Its major project currently is the development of the Kite® Suite, a SaaS-based testing platform that is used by multiple state departments of education. The Kite Suite is a secure system based on ongoing research in universal design, usability, and fairness.

Incorporating the latest software technology solutions, Student Portal is a secure testing platform used by students to take tests. It can deliver a variety of test items, including technology-enhanced item types, in a variety of ways so that students with a wide range of skills and abilities can access the assessments and their related content. Educator Portal, a secure web-based application aids teachers and administrative users in the administration of assessments, including student enrollment and monitoring/tracking results. Survey Solutions includes a collection of products that share core organizational configuration while providing flexible options for delivering surveys and questionnaires and tracking observations.

The Kite Suite has cross-platform/multi-device support and is supported on desktops, laptops, and tablets. ATS also works with the Center for Public Partnerships and Research (CPPR) on DAISEY™, another SaaS-based data-collection and reporting application.
