WHY THE NAME FAR FETCH

Many have asked “why Far Fetch”? We like all the definitions listed below. We go to great lengths (far) to help customers solve problems. Fetch, as it relates to a computer operation, seemed appropriate. Who doesn’t like to play fetch with a dog? And as for fetch as a nautical term, we live in Virginia Beach and like being out on the water,
so there’s that.

FAR

Definition

At, To or By a considerable distance OR Over a large expanse of space or time OR Situated at a great distance in space or time

FETCH

Definition

Operation where a computer retrieves information OR A game played with a dog, to retrieve something, OR The distance that wind travels over the water

A PLAY ON WORDS

Many find it hard to believe that the same Budget Builder software application is used by all branches of the military and other DoD component commands. Because there are so many differing opinions about how to conduct budgeting activities, we take great pride in the fact that so many different DoD organizations have embraced Budget Builder!
