In this scenario, it was considered essential to develop, in addition, a technological tool that allows a technical assessment as objectively as possible, to reduce arbitrariness and that contributes to homogeneous criteria on the phenomenon of social exclusion.

On the basis of these criteria are established Inclúe tool, which allows the calculation of up to 100 indicators, taking the form of four major dimensions, which seek to appraise the assessment of the situation of a person in a given moment and facilitate the evaluation of actions. For all such cases, in addition, the tool acts as a large database in which we store the results for subsequent consultations or analysis.
