As the demand for credentialing and certification grows across a wide range of industries, many certification bodies are seeking new ways to manage their data collection activities and certification lifecycles. Often, these organizations turn to the latest technologies, such as Certification Management Software, to help them achieve this.
Why? There are a multitude of reasons, including:
- It puts them in a better position to grow their programs
- It enables them to manage re-certification activities more effectively
- It creates business efficiencies (either saving money, boosting productivity, or both)
- It gives their stakeholders a better user experience
- It helps them to leverage data and reporting to make faster and more informed decisions.
Because not all certification bodies are created equal, it is important that technology providers recognize this, and offer organizations the flexibility to configure their own data collection methods and processes without having to invest in high price-high risk custom solutions. What’s more, it is critical that these technologies interact well with other systems, through effective integration, and make it relatively easy to migrate data and documents from aging, legacy systems.
ARMATURE Fabric™ is a specialized software platform for certification and accreditation that helps organizations automate their entire certification lifecycle. It is the culmination of two decades of experience the ARMATURE team has in supporting multiple certification and accreditation organizations in education, healthcare, engineering, law enforcement, and other industries. Below are some of the things we have learned from our customers with respect to using ARMATURE Fabric™ to power their mission.
Single Source of Truth | Certification Management Software
ARMATURE Fabric™ represents a single source of truth for all certification or credentialing activities within an organization, regardless of their industry or business type. The platform serves as a centralized location that keeps track of everything including certification applications, assessments, documentation, evidence, issues management, reporting, continuous professional development tracking, and more. All this information is contained in a single location instead of being buried in a mountain of paper or distributed across multiple systems.
This creates better insights into the efficiency of your processes and activities. ARMATURE Fabric™ manages your entire certification lifecycle, including data collection (e.g. application forms), processes, and recertification. It tracks applicants by applicant source, promotes communication through automated notifications, monitors decisions made, and allows you to collect and manage continuing professional development achievements. ARMATURE Fabric also enables you to provide critical insights to your senior leaders through its robust reporting capabilities.
All these features make it easier for you to understand and manage your entire certification landscape and focus on areas for improvement, retention, and/or program growth.
Room To Grow | Credentialing Management Software
Over the last two decades we have worked with a diverse range of clients.

This system collaboration gives you the ability to leverage a range of best-in-class systems all aligned to your organizational mission. Finally, it’s built to run on multiple platforms, meaning users can take their work into the field and have access to all of the data they need on the laptop, mobile phone, or tablet.
