What's in Store for the Next 5 Years?

Imagine where you'll be in 2023 — or better yet, where your United Way will be in 2023. What will your campaign goal and community impact work look like? How will technology play a role? How will your job be different? As 2018 comes to a close and we start to think about new year's resolutions, fill out this five-question survey to let us know where you think things will be in 5 years.

Take Suvey


Did you know that our staff averages 13 years of service with us!

Nearly 70% of our staff have been with us over 10 years! 40% have over 15 years!

Many of our staff have worked at United Way organizations prior to joining Andar Software.

If we add our staff’s prior United Way experience, it totals over 530 person-years of direct United Way experience.

We continue to be excited to be part of your business!

Data is the New Currency - Part 2

Last week we asked three questions about your data. This week let's dig into the first question..."What data are you collecting on accounts?"

Your answer should be simple and concise. If you think about it, you as an organization are likely collecting 15-20 different pieces of information to store in your database. Some items are as simple as email address, phone number, or gender.

You need to have a documented list of these data items and each database user should understand them. Having a documented plan will also go a long way to help with data quality and universal collection of the information.

Not sure where to start? Pull out a pledge form and write down what fields you are collecting from your donors.

Key Performance Indicators

Do you set targets and measure performance for staff?  With Andar/360 KPI's, you can set daily, weekly, monthly or annual targets for your staff and chart whether targets are being met.

The following partial screen shot gives you an idea of how Andar/360 Dashboards can be used to track the information & statistics critical to a campaign or your organization. (If you don't see the blinking lights check this story out on the web.) Thank you to United Way of Midland County for Sharing.
