In today's society, work is an essential element of who we are. To have a job, do it well and reap the benefits of that effort is one of the most important ways a person can live their life with dignity.  -- Rappahannock Goodwill Industries

Success Story: Rappahannock Goodwill Industries Grows with ABS.

Rappahannock Goodwill Industries has a mission to help people with disabilities obtain jobs. The Fredericksburg, VA, organization provides vocational training, counseling, and other employment services to individuals who face mental, physical, or emotional barriers to employment. In addition to providing employment services to thousands of people, Rappahannock Goodwill directly employs more than 300 people with disabilities in its retail stores, commercial laundry service, and custodial operation.

Rappahannock Goodwill’s combination of full-time, hourly, and piecework employees adds complexity to payroll and personnel tracking. To help meet the IT challenge, they rely on Applied Business Services (ABS), a software solutions firm dedicated to helping non-profit organizations.

“For Rappahannock Goodwill, the TRAVERSE® solutions from Open Systems provide a lot of flexibility,” says Maureen Williams, president of ABS. “We are able to develop customized solutions quickly and affordably to accommodate unique needs.”

In addition to the TRAVERSE Accounting System, Rappahannock Goodwill uses three integrated modules designed and developed by ABS: the Individual Tracking System™ (ITS™), the Laundry Production Tracking System™ (LTS™), and the Human Resources module.
