SC First Steps KITS

KITS (Knowledge, Information, and Teaming System) is an online program and case management system designed to support the implementation and monitoring of South Carolina First Steps local partnership and 4K programs. KITS will be used by teams of state staff, local program administrators, practitioners, and families to address a variety of program and case data management needs.

Meet the Team

The AnLar team focus will be on building SC First Steps KITS as a customized and easy-to-use IT System around South Carolina’s First Steps processes (rather than forcing teams into a prefabricated system). This approach is possible because of our experienced IT developers, content experts, and project management staff that have significant experience with building customized solutions for public agencies and private industry. From project management and IT design to knowledge of program requirements, from coding and testing to maintenance and training, our AnLar team will support all aspects of the SC First Steps KITS project.
