Andrew has an interest in photography. He enjoys regular whisky and beer
tastings with friends. On several occasions Andrew has had to travel to Europe for
programming conferences and has used the opportunities to explore England,
Scotland and Wales.
Andrew Clow has an extensive background as an IT service professional. He
joined Freedom Software Ltd in 2007 as a programmer assisting with product
development, supporting customers and helping to grow the business.
In 2009 Alan recognised that FreeDAM needed to be rewritten to keep ahead of client needs in terms of speed, reliability and connectivity. Together with Alan he re-engineered FreeDAM to use a SQL database and programmed a large number of improvements and innovations into the software. In 2011 FreeDAM version 2 was released to an extremely positive response from a growing number of customers.
Andrew’s excellent knowledge of the funeral sector, accounting and programming has allowed him to use Xero’s api to upload invoices from FreeDAM to Xero.
Alan and Andrew are continuing to develop FreeDAM to exceed client expectations in terms of database and accounting reporting, connectivity and data mining.
