Meet the Team

The AnLar team focus will be on building Ascend Colorado as a customized and easy-to-use IT System around Colorado 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 Ascend Colorado project.
