Adage Source, Inc - About Us
We believe in organizations that help the community.
Our Mission:
Adage Source's missions is to support organizations that help people, using our software, consulting, expertise, and experience. Helping those who help others.
We know the hoops that non-profits have to jump through to support their people and communities. Way more than commercial businesses. They don't have time to wrestle with computers, technology, and extra organization.

Adage Source is committed to helping these organizations by providing easy to use sytems that meet their needs, and are designed around the work they do. Too many computer systems create extra work for their users, only do a small portion of what they need, and force centers to work around the software.

We have overcome those issues and are able to provide organizations with CRMs and data management, tracking, and reporting systems that can be shaped around their organization, even if you use our existing products. Our staff excels at working with clients to understand their human processes, and then we customize our software to simplify your workflow. We give you control and power without requiring you to know technology.
Where did we come from?
In 1976 during the Independent Living Movement, Benedict Schwartz helped establish Connecticut's first Independent Living Center. In 1982 he was hired by Cornell University to begin developing the second Independent Living Simulation along with ILRU of Houston Texas.

Benedict began Dayspring Software to develop programs that would help centers.

In 2005, Benedict retired, and the employees of Dayspring Software created Adage Source, Inc. to continue working with the CIL Clients.
How We Got Started
Adage Source took over the development of Independence Online, the latest CIL management software in a twenty year line of products from Dayspring Software.

Working with over 15 Centers for Independent Living and our three decades of experience, Independence Online was created. Independence Online was the first web based CIL Management Program that was COMPLETELY dedicated to CILs.

In 2012, we released an advanced database building platform of our own design, Design-a-Database. Design-a-Database allows us to rapidly develop custom databases at a fraction of the cost and in a fraction of the time.

With our roots already in the Rehabilitative Services arena we built CILs First, the follow-up web-based CIL database, and have created new case management systems for Brain Injury centers and Aging centers. Since then we have worked with numerous businesses, centers, and individuals to create custom data software applications and case management systems tailored to them.

With lots of clients still dependent on their programs, Nathaniel took the existing CIL Management Software and founded Adage Source to ensure that CILs still had an organization to rely on in the computer arena.
