Do You Know Of Another Organization That Is Struggling With Their Accounting Software?
We would be honored to have the opportunity to assist them.

One of the most appreciated things our clients do is recommend DWD to their friends and peers at other organizations.

If you know of another organization that is struggling with their financial management system, we would love the opportunity to talk with them.

As an added benefit, if they become an MIP client, you'll be headed to a nice dinner compliments of DWD.

The Perfect Password Policy
While there is no perfect password policy that applies to all organizations, there are a few basics that pertain to everyone.  

A state-of-the-art security system won't much matter if a hacker gets a hold of an employee's password.  Smart password practices require next to no budget and require little time to setup and manage. 

If your organization has overlooked setting up a password policy, now is the time to put one in place.
