About Adage Source

Adage Source was founded based on custom programming for each organization’s needs.  We don’t use template or cookie-cutter software.  We don’t expect one size to fit all.  We expect to get to know our customers and respond to their needs in a personal, results-oriented way.  Our objective is always to put the customer first.  Because we specialize in non-profit management systems, you can count on your system being built with your unique needs in mind.  We learn about your business, know your objectives, and design strategic solutions that are just right for you.

We pride ourselves on our ability to provide data management applications to non-profit organizations.  We help you do your job better and offer the complete customer care that you deserve.

Our non-profit service includes full reporting capabilities, periodic updates to the system and quick-access customer support, both in written form and in person – just a phone call away.  We focus on user-friendly programs and technical support that simplifies your work.

Our Team

Adage Source is a family-owned and operated business that originated in 1976 with a management solution that was simple and individual.  Founder Benedict Schwartz helped establish Connecticut’s first Independent Living Center and the programs that would help this center and others to manage their data.  After developing the second Independent Living Simulation in Houston, he started Dayspring Software and continued to work with Independent Living Centers.  After Benedict’s retirement in 2005, his son, Nathaniel, and the employees of Dayspring Software created Adage Source.  The company has continued to focus on the business that built its foundation – customized solutions for non-profit organizations.

The team of developers have taken Non-Profit Management software to the next level, using Adage Source’s proprietary Design-a-Database product.  This allows us to rapidly develop custom databases at a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the time of other management systems.  Our newest products for non-profit organizations promise to be both value-driven and results-oriented. 

Our developers wrote the first credit card transaction software, created in 1997, the first online loyalty program implemented throughout South America, and the first web-based management software for the Centers for Independent Living in 2005, called Independence Online. In 2012, Adage Source released Design-a-Database, an original, advanced database-building platform that allows us to rapidly develop customized databases at a fraction of the cost.  Today, our software and data management systems are used throughout the world by large and small businesses, non-profit organizations and rehabilitative services.  Our clients include Centers for Independent Living, Brain Injury Centers, Aging Centers, other non-profits, and small businesses – all who need flexible, expandable management solutions and customized, accurate, reporting.


“The database is more than just a record of services, It’s the best database I’ve ever used. It has the capability to generate and print our reports regarding anything. It can capture any data you’ll ever need.”
