Lest We Forget

Remembrance Day is Monday, November 11, 2020. 

We want to pay tribute to all the fallen soldiers of World War. We are forever indebted to those who lost their lives in battle and offer our support and love to their families.

Lieut-Col. John McCrae, a Canadian army doctor, wrote the poem IN FLANDERS FIELDS during the First World War, while on the battlefields in Flanders, Belgium. The scarlet poppy quickly became the symbol for soldiers who died in battle.


In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

We're Hiring!

A Special Thank You

Just over thirty-two years ago, two gentlemen left their positions at a company called LGS to begin what is now known as Andar Software. When Réal Bédard and André Marcil started their journey, they developed several different projects. Of their many creations, the two that made the most impact were named FMS and Andar/360. Andar/360 has been implemented at nearly 400 of the largest United Ways in the United States and Canada. The software is used by thousands each month. Social good organizations use it to process over four billion dollars annually.

This past Tuesday was Réal's last day with Andar Software. We want to take this opportunity to thank Réal, along with his family, for the many years of work.

Réal, thank you for your dedication to the company and the commitment to each of your staff and colleagues. Your contributions to the industry will never be forgotten. We wish you an enjoyable and fulfilling retirement!

Andar Software Employee of the Year

Earlier this year, we asked for your help in nominating an Andar Software Employee of the year. The nomination forms asked that you identify how the nominee performs beyond their "day-to-day" tasks and demonstrates dedication to their work and customers.

Thank you for sharing your input. We were happy to see numerous nominations pour in that were thoughtful and inspiring.

The winner of the Customer-Nominated Employee of the Year Award is Technical Support Specialist, Teresa Lowe-Hodges. Teresa was nominated by Joseph Redding, from Trident United Way, in North Charleston, South Carolina. Joseph shared with us that Teresa has a "calmness to her approach that only comes from deep experience and total confidence. She has the amazing ability to take fractured input, and (in her very calm, dry-humored way) always finds the solution."

Congratulations Teresa! Thank you, Joseph, for sharing your nomination with the Andar Software community!

Andar Software staff also took the time to nominate their colleagues. The winner of the Peer-Nominated Employee of the Year Award is Developer, Bardolph Tse. Bardolph is always willing to accept the next project even if he isn't familiar with the technology. He consistently maintains a positive outlook as he tackles new obstacles and is always able to resolve all challenges that come his way!

Congratulations Bardolph!
