Who are We?

Adminware Corporation (formerly drh Micro Software, Inc.) was founded in 1983 as an independent computer consulting and software customization firm by D. Robin Harris. We (the company and myself) have resided in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada since the mid-1960's with a brief home in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada from September 1997 to May 2002. In July 2006 we moved to just outside Winnipeg, near Beausejour.

Robin has developed a number of customized database administrative software programs for Windows-based computers, using the trademark Adminware.

From 1985 - 1997, Robin was involved in the education field through Continuing Education courses, primarily in the area of WordPerfect training. In February 1990, Robin became a WordPerfect Certified Instructor, only the third individual in Canada (at that time) to achieve this status.

This menu-based program has the flexibility to meet your needs. You can customize many fields to meet the specific requirements you define. The various modules of the program enable you to create membership rosters; individual volunteer, committee, or work lists; and quarterly statements and receipts through weekly contributions.

Any church, no matter how large or small the congregation, can begin to see benefits within days of the implementation of The Church Executive package.

The program was first developed in 1985. Many additions and enhancements have been made since that time at the requests of users. The continual upgrading of the software ensures that your needs are being met now and in the future.
