CFDC Helps Software Company Achieve its Goal

November 28, 2011

Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation, Prescott

Serving tea may not sound like an innovative modern business, but in this case, it is.  CommonGoals Software offers its clients TEA.  Founded in 1993, CommonGoals provides custom software to non-profit and government organizations across Canada and the United States.

Their flagship product is TEA (The Exceptional Assistant), organizational management software that tracks caseloads, loans, grants, funders, investors, donors, and government reports.  TEA is currently used by Community Futures offices across Canada.

Since 1995, the Grenville CFDC has supported CommonGoals Software with loans and guarantees plus on-going business advice.

Grenville CFDC has provided invaluable business expertise and financing, as well as encouragement to reach our goals.  Over the last 18 years, they have been the one constant, which has contributed immensely to our growth and success.  We are truly grateful for the comprehensive business support they have provided,” says Scott Rowat, President of CommonGoals Software.
