New York, NY - The National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP) of Columbus, OH, an organization that serves children, youth and familiesthrough more than 200 governmental contracts in eight states has chosen Defran Systems' Evolv-CS Enterprise Edition as its Client and Case Management software solution.

Features such as the integration of service delivery with financial data and the ability to adjust case management workflows to include contractual obligations were among the top reasons Evolv-CS® was chosen by the agency. Duane Phillips, IT Project Manager for NYAP, said, "Evolv-CS®is fully web-based and capable of meeting our current needs as well as the various scenarios we can foresee in the future. Its ability to configure business rules and contractual terms within the system via configuration as opposed to customization is an added source of value."

Prior to selecting Evolv-CS®, NYAP had been operating several systems that were developed in-house with a central database for tracking clients in all states. While searching for a system to upgrade to, the agency learned of Defran Systems at the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) conference.

After observing system demos from seven different vendors, NYAP ultimately chose Defran. "The technologies upon which Evolv-CS® is built closely match our environment and the long-term cost of ownership is lower than the other qualifying products we reviewed. Also, the Defran team members we met were extremely knowledgeable and professional." said, Mr. Phillips.

Fran Loshin-Turso, Defran's President and CEO who worked closely with NYAP throughout the process commented, "The flexibility of Evolv-CS® is perfect for NYAP's current operations in multiple states and it will easily adapt to handle their future growth."
