AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- nFocus Solutions®, the leading provider of performance management and outcome measurement solutions, and Search Institute®, the worldwide leader in discovering what kids need to succeed, have entered into a strategic partnership. Through the agreement, Search's Developmental Assets Profile (DAP) is exclusively available in nFocus' SurveyTrax tool.

Adding the joint nFocus Solutions and Search Institute application to our impressive menu of technology is the next step for BCYF to continue improving the lives of Boston's children and families."
