Orchard Software Recognized as an Adoption Advocate by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a national, nonprofit public charity dedicated to finding permanent homes for the more than 140,000 children waiting in North America’s foster care systems. Created by Wendy’s® founder Dave Thomas who was adopted, the Foundation implements evidence-based, results-driven national service programs, foster care adoption awareness campaigns and innovative grantmaking.

More than 30 years ago, Dave Thomas led an initiative advocating for better adoption benefits in the workplace. The Foundation has carried that legacy forward through the Adoption-Friendly Workplace program.

Orchard Software is proud to be named a DTFA 2024 Adoption Advocate, which is an organization that offers financial reimbursement, paid leave, or both, and one that supports making adoption and foster care options for working parents.

“Adoption is an amazing, rewarding experience, which can be costly and time intensive. Adoption benefits help to remove the barriers of affordability and time off from work that many adoptive parents face,” says Rita Soronen, President & CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. “By establishing an adoption benefits policy, Orchard Software is making it easier for employees to consider adopting.”

What are industry leaders saying about Orchard?


“Some of the most important factors in an LIS purchase decision are customizability, flexibility, and the manufacturer’s ability to provide superior customer service. Orchard has differentiated itself through unparalleled product development and customer support, and its Orchard Harvest LIS stands far above competing products.”

Frost & Sullivan, Summary of Feedback, 2019

"Providers and payers demand better performance, usability, and interoperability from their vendor partners every year. Best in KLAS winners set the standard of excellence in their market segment. Earning a Best in KLAS award should both excite and humble the recipients. It serves as a signal to providers that they should expect only the best from the winning vendors."

“The rapid adoption of POCT worldwide necessitates robust connectivity and management solutions. Orchard Software’s quality-driven company culture and platform maturity are critical points of differentiation, allowing for the development of the advanced Trellis POCT management software.
