Do You Want Apple Pay and Google Pay Integration?

Have your customers asked about having the option to use Apple Pay and Google Pay in e-Pledge?

At Andar, we're continually looking to expand our technology reach to make your (and your donors') experiences the best they can be. There's been some conversation about the need for this type of payment integration, and we'd like to get feedback from more of you.

Let us know your thoughts in just a few clicks!

Assign a Plan to Individuals That Send a Text

Easily set up a texting automation process that assigns a Plan to the person who sent a text. This Plan will set the value for the variable "MessageText," and will create a connector import that adds a pledge to an envelope.

You can now split text messages into new variables such as Keyword, EmployeeID, and PledgeAmount.

Are You Using Your Existing Software to Its Full Potential?

Andar Software can provide database management services to help you make full use of your existing software.

If you have staffing gaps or if you need support during the upcoming campaign season, we can help! Get assistance with routine Andar procedures such as performing rollovers, running rebuilds, and other scheduled jobs and performing database cleanup. We can assist with Database 2, custom report building, and integrating Andar into other systems. We can even provide processing support as needed or on a fulltime basis.

Our Andar experts can help you achieve the results you're looking for. If you're interested in receiving database management services, contact us, and we'll be happy to talk to you about the services that best suit your needs.

32-bit Windows Support

Important Reminder: Andar Software will no longer support Windows 32-bit as of January 2020.

As Andar Software continues to grow and take advantage of new technology, we find it more challenging to support old technology. We're currently planning to upgrade Andar/360's internal engine which only supports 64-bit computers — and we'll be moving to this technology in January 2020. As a result, Andar/360 will only run on 64-bit computers beginning with version 2020.01. (Older versions of Andar/360 will continue to work on both 32-bit and 64-bit computers.)

As such, it's an excellent time for you to make an inventory of your computers. The “System” settings on your computers will hopefully show “System type: 64-bit Operating System.” You can also go to to see if any 32-bit machines used Andar/360 in the last month. You'll only see an alert on this page if you have 32-bit machines.
