Open standards increase compatibility and lower the barrier of entry for software
developers in a given domain. We are actively involved in utilizing and developing open standards, such as RETS (the Real Estate Transaction Standard) and MISMO.
Our RETS-related products include RETS Genie
for data integration management, CREDS for data service and RETS server capabilities, and GRETA, a RETS download client. If
you want to build a RETS solution or enhance your existing RETS solution, we can help.
Our work with
open standards also includes facilitating workgroups, business analysis, advanced technology research and development, and
extensive technical writing. Ask us how we can help you take a planned or existing open standard from inception
to adoption in your industry.

Code Audit and Remediation
Code audits examine conformance to standards, detect design flaws and anti-patterns, expose
possible security breaches, and determine potential performance issues. In addition, the code is reviewed for items
that either impact or support the flexibility, maintainability, and scalability of the product. The assessment of the
code base may also include a plan and cost to remediate critical issues identified.
The current environment of mergers and outsourcing often results in a business assuming responsibility for code it
did not create. As an independent third party, we assist these businesses with their due diligence regarding such software
assets. When a remediation plan is requested, we offer mentoring and co-development to assist the on-site staff in assuming
ownership of the code.
Group facilitation and workshop techniques are useful at any stage in the software development
lifecycle. The facilitator helps groups achieve their goals by helping the diverse members of the group think systematically.
A facilitator can challenge group members to identify criteria and bring consensus out of chaos.
We at Ronin Technologies are experienced at facilitation, applying such techniques as Joint Application Design/Development
(JAD) and Class-Responsibility-Collaborator (CRC). We have facilitated both inter-company and intra-company sessions.
These techniques were critical to the development of the RETS2 specification.
