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 Seddons Corner.
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.
