OAKLAND, Calif. and RESTON, Va., July 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Binti, Inc., The mission-driven company committed to driving better outcomes for children and families through technology, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Binti’s Public Sector Distributor, making the company’s modern and results-driven modular software for Child Welfare agencies available to State and Local agencies through Carahsoft’s reseller partners, National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint, National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA), E&I Cooperative Services Contract and OMNIA Partners contracts.

“We are excited to work with Carahsoft to expand the pathways by which agencies can partner with Binti,” said Felicia Curcuru, CEO of Binti. “With this new partnership, agencies will have more choices and flexibility in the way they procure Binti’s software modules. Carahsoft is a leader in Public Sector technology distribution and we are thrilled to work with them to deliver our solutions and bring better outcomes to children and families.”

Binti builds a modern, mobile-friendly Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution focused on driving measurable results and promoting quality practice in child welfare to ensure that every child has a fair chance at life. Binti’s software can help agencies quickly achieve tangible results to improve the lives of vulnerable children including:

  • Increase the total number of available foster care homes
  • Reduce the time to approve and license those homes
  • Increase the percentage of kinship or relative placements for youth in foster care
  • Improve foster care placement stability
  • Help children reach permanent home or placement more quickly

The software provides individual portals for each stakeholder involved in the process: State, county and private agency workers and families that support these children. Each of these portals provide a curated experience that guides the user through the actions they need to take to improve the experience, report on outcomes, facilitate communication and encourage collaboration among stakeholders.

“We are thrilled to partner with Binti and our resellers to revolutionize how child welfare agencies operate,” said Joe Tabatabaian, Sales Director at Carahsoft. “By empowering agencies with resources and technology needed to navigate the complexities of the foster care and adoption process, Carahsoft and Binti are both making a difference in the community and supporting the Government to fulfill its duties.”

Binti's software is now available through Carahsoft’s NASPO ValuePoint AR2472, National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance NCPA001-86, E&I Contract #EI00063~2021MA and OMNIA Partners Contract #R191902. For more information, contact the Binti team at Carahsoft at (703) 871-8548 or binti@carahsoft.com.
