HMIS Vendor Certification

Simtech Solutions provides comprehensive review of HMIS products. We provide third-party validation of the reporting and data export capabilities of software. The purpose is to identify issues within a software product that may hinder the vendor frommarketing the software as a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) that was built in compliance with any formal specifications and guidelines established by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Specifically, Simtech Solutions will review the data import functionality and related to adherence to the HUD CSV 4.1 Echange Format and the Continuum of Care Annual Performance Report (APR). Simtech will provide all test data sets used in the validation process, detailed test results that highlight any areas that are in potential need of attention, and copies of any HUD endorsed tools used during the testing process so that the vendor can replicate the tests executed.
