New Year, New Look!

January is a time when many people work on reinventing themselves by shedding a few extra pounds or getting into some new healthy habits. Andar software isn't in the health and fitness space, so we'd be happy to help you with a different way to reinvent yourself.

Why not consider making changes to the appearance of your website and emails? Andar Software can assist you in creating a new look or email style that shows off your best self in 2020. Contact Professional Services below to find out more.

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 with a 64-bit operating system 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 AndarSoftware.com/MyInfo 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.

How Secure is Your Password?

The end of the year is a good time to review your organization’s security policy for logging in to Andar/360. From the Andar/360 application, to websites you visit, to your video security system at home, security is vital. Following are some recommendations for creating strong passwords that would apply to all of your computer usage.

  • Make your password long
  • Make your password a nonsense phrase, not a common word found in the dictionary
  • Include numbers, symbols, and/or both upper- and lower-case letters
  • Avoid using obvious personal information, like your pet’s name or college mascot
  • Do not reuse passwords, never use them for multiple websites or applications
  • Create passwords that are hard to guess but easy to remember

Create a Website Maintenance Message

Do you alert your visitors when your website is going to be down for maintenance? It's good practice to keep the public informed anytime your site is not available by creating a webpage that includes a maintenance message.
