InSTEDD has created an evolving platform of technology tools and services based on years of collaboration with our partners around the world. Our systems conform to a set of architectural principles that allow them to be used either as-is or as building blocks for larger solutions. All of our tools meet or exceed the relevant standards for their domain and allow the sharing of data with other systems in a reliable and secure way.

These tools are completely free and open source, and available for anyone wanting to use them to improve the social impact and scale of their work. All our tools can be tailored to individual needs and integrated with other existing tools.  We are actively engaged with our user communities to further apply and enhance our tools and increase their impact.
