Garradinproductivity & management
Current version: 1.2.4~ynh1
Potential alternative to: Ciel Associations
Garradin (word meaning money in an aboriginal dialect of northern Australia, pronounced "gar-a-dine" em) is software for associative management. It is the tool of choice for managing an association, a sports club, an NGO, etc. It is designed to meet the needs of a small to medium-sized structure: management of members, accounting, website, note-taking in meetings, archiving and sharing of the association's operating documents, discussion between members, etc. etc. .
Garradin becomes Paheko!
Why change your name?
It appeared that the pronunciation of "Garradin" in French is sometimes a bit complicated, as is its spelling.
There is already a commercial software called "Garradin" in Australia, which does finance for large groups. For the moment this was not a problem because our association management solution was only available in French and until then did not have much scope. But we would like to be able to offer the software in other languages in the years to come, and as Garradin (the French project) is starting to be quite well known, it seems necessary to limit the risk of confusion in the future with this commercial solution.
What will be the new name?
We chose the name Paheko, a word from the Māori language meaning "to cooperate", illustrating the purpose of the software: to improve together the daily management of an association:)
