“The Apparatus team have worked very hard to make this a user friendly system, and it shows. We get lots of compliments on our online registration process. ”

“When I started volunteering for the SHCA, we had about 20 adult and children's programs that we ran. We now have, on average, 60 adult and children's programs that we run three times a year, as well as approximately 13 summer programs as well. There is no way that I could have managed to expand, manage and maintain the SHCA programming without the aid of Apparatus.”
