SmartTrakker is a data-management platform designed by Bart Niedner and Rob Ursino. Bart and Rob have been building back-end, member-centric tools for high-profile clients since 2002. Nonprofits, businesses, and community organizations all need to track transactions and communicate with members. Many also do some sort of fundraising in their course of business. Smart Trakker is a flexible software solution which brings together the tools required for these common business needs.
Special thanks to Michael Schottenhaml, Michelle Niedner, and Lauren Byrnes for their direct technical contributions; to our initial customers base who took the brave leap from Fellowship to SmartTrakker and were invaluable to understanding the needs and use cases for our product; and most profoundly, we are grateful to Rob's and Bart's families for their continuing support and belief in our purpose of helping our customers better serve others! Thank you!
Minor versions of this Smart Trakker release are named after famous explorers. The defining features of the Sally Ride version are the ability to purchase Smart Trakker online and our Affiliate Program. With Smart Trakker now accessing new territory, astronaut Sally Ride seems anappropriate pioneer to pause and honor... Sally Kristen Ride (May 26, 1951 – July 23, 2012) was an American astronaut, physicist, and engineer. Born in Los Angeles, she joined NASA in 1978 and became the first American woman in space in 1983. Ride remains the youngest American astronaut to have traveled to space, having done so at the age of 32. After flying twice on the Orbiter Challenger, she left NASA in 1987. She worked for two years at Stanford University's Center for International Security and Arms Control, then at the University of California, San Diego as a professor of physics, primarily researching nonlinear optics and Thomson scattering. She served on the committees that investigated the Challenger and Columbia space shuttle disasters, the only person to participate in both. Ride died of pancreatic cancer on July 23, 2012.
