Real Need Software (rns) was established in 1996 and within
the first two years established a reputation as one of the
UK's leading software providers in the human resources assessment
field. Since that time we have been developing innovative
software for both internet and desktop purposes which is now
being used in a several countries.
RNS's founder, John Gosling, graduated with a first-class
honours degree in Psychology and Physics from the University
of Manchester in 1974 and with an M.Phil degree from the University
of London in 1976. John is a chartered occupational psychologist
and was Principal Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire,
prior to setting up Real Need Software.
After early experiments in programming back in the mid eighties,
John became involved in software development at a professional
level in 1989 when he developed a system for generating narrative
reports from psychometric assessment data. Since then, he
has specialised in database development, narrative reporting
software and web-based systems.
