How it all Started
Friendly Manager development came about as a result of Friendly Ltd's CEO Karl Friend, helping out with an organisation being run through his church.
Experiencing the frustrations of managing administrative tasks, Karl searched for a software solution that would make his job easier. As there wasn't anything close to being suitable, Karl decided to put his company to the task.
Karl wanted a solution that was effortless and yet effective, the two primary characteristics of what has become Friendly Manager.
Vision for Friendly Manager

Our goal is to see Friendly Manager used by sporting and interest groups throughout New Zealand, Australia and the world.
