In Memory of a Dear Friend

Yesterday, February 7, 2019, we lost a dear friend and valued colleague. Peter Backers passed away in the morning due to health complications.

Our hearts go out to his wife, Robin Maiville, who together with Peter were instrumental in the wide adoption of Andar/360 in the United Way system.

Peter was a long-standing member of the nonprofit community; over the years, many of our customers got to know him on a personal level. He was a genuine, dedicated and key leader for Andar Software from 1999 to 2015.

A funeral will be held in Mattawan, MI for close friends and family. He will be dearly missed.

Integrate Your Instance of Salesforce with Andar/360

Do you use Salesforce for your day-to-day resource development activities and Andar/360 for your back-office processing and as a system-of-record?

Maximize efficiency by synchronizing your data between the two systems in real-time with our Salesforce Integration module. With the module, any accounts already in your Salesforce instance will be imported and matched with your Andar platform. Likewise, any Andar accounts will be pushed to Salesforce.

Education is Your Weapon

Nelson Mandela was famously quoted for saying, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

The United Way community understands this very well, having supported Education, Income, and Health in a variety of ways for many years. It's widely understood that a solid educational foundation breeds success later in life — this holds true on a personal level, and also in business.

Learning new skills will give you the tools to generate income for your organization, and ultimately impact your community positively. Register for the Pre-Conference and General Conference session tracks at the 2019 Andar Software Users Group Conference, and be a driving force in moving your organization and community forward.
