VADAR Systems Signs Contract With Donald R. Andrew To Provide Broad Range Of Financial Services


Maynard, MA, USA – January 1, 2007 – VADAR®Systems, a Massachusetts based Financial Software provider supporting over 60 MA municipalities, is pleased to announce it has signed a contract with Donald R. Andrew, a Massachusetts Municipal Accountant & Auditor since 1974, to provide a broad range of financial management services for VADAR®Systems integrated Suite of Accounting, Purchase Order, Payroll/HR, and Fixed Assets applications.

Mr. Andrew has over 30 years of experience in the municipal industry, 15 years of which was spent as the City Auditor for Everett, MA. He is a former President and Executive Board member of the Mass. Municipal Auditors’ & Accountants’ Association (MMAAA). Don served as an Executive member of the MMAAA for 16 years. He also co-teaches the “UMAS Boot Camp” Course with Mark Abrahams. Don’s expertise lies not only in operational and audit environments, but also with the legal aspects and statutory compliance of UMAS.

In its 11th year, VADAR®Systems has dramatically grown to be a dominant municipal software provider in the Massachusetts marketplace by integrating its wide variety of Windows® based Financial Applications. Supporting clients from Cape Cod and the Islands to Berkshire County, VADAR®Systems’ software supports municipal entities with a broad range of sizes and needs. Clients range from small towns with less than 1,000 real estate parcels and less than 250 people to larger cities with over 20,000 real estate parcels and more than 50,000 people.

“We are so very pleased to have Don as part of our accounting and product specialist teams,” explained VADAR®Systems CEO, Frank Natale. “Don is a long time user of our fund accounting suite and was instrumental in helping us build out the application several years ago. Don is very well known and respected within the industry. Many of our current users have taken the UMAS course that is co-taught both by Don and Mark Abrahams. Many of those same users have then gone on to be designated Certified Governmental Accountants & Auditors themselves. Having someone like Don with such extensive municipal financial expertise will bring incredible benefits not only to VADAR®Systems but more importantly, to our ever growing client base. It’s not just about having superior software. It’s more about providing what our competitors can’t: knowledgeable, local support coupled with deep and far reaching industry expertise. The breadth and scope of industry experience which Don brings to us will accomplish just that. It’s extremely exciting for our company and for our clients.”

Don Andrew stated, “I’m sincerely excited by this opportunity. I’ve worked with VADAR®Systems for several years and look forward to expanding my relationship both with the company and its clients. I think I can bring a lot to the table and am anxious to become more involved. It was a pleasure to teach at the recent company user group meeting and we have a lot on tap for 2007, including new products, new versions and new revisions to the entire fund accounting and purchase order suite.”
