Aloe Software Group is a software development company located in Victoria, TX. Our initial software product “PEIMS Data Plus” began development not long after Aloe Software Group was formed in 2004. PEIMS Data Plus was created as a result of the experiences of the three partners, one being a former PEIMS Coordinator for a school district, one an experienced data base administrator and the other a PEIMS Coordinator for an ESC in Texas.

 

In 2013 PEIMS Data Plus was renamed “OnDataSuite”. The renaming and rebranding was necessary to reflect on the expanding data reporting capabilities of PEIMS Data Plus. OnDataSuite offered LEA’s in Texas access to more data than ever before. OnDataSuite contains a suite of products allowing users more refined choices of data options.
