MY Story

 

StewartStewart Ganser, CPA

Co-Owner / Product Manager / Fire District

I joined BIAS Software in Sept 2012 & moved to Spokane in Oct 2013. Prior to that, I developed & marketed Fire Admin Software to WA fire districts. One of my duties at BIAS is assisting with the transition from Fire Admin Software to BIAS Software.

To go back even further, I was co-founder of Sunpro Software where we developed & marketed FireRMS, a records management system for fire departments. I am still involved in providing add-on enhancements, MyFireRules & MyFireTouch.

My wife, Marilyn, and I have 4 grown children. We enjoy life as empty nesters, taking walks, traveling, discovering new wines, watching the Seattle Seahawks & visiting our grandchildren. I stay active with early morning yoga & walking to work.

"Switching to BIAS has greatly increased the efficiency in City Hall. We use less paper, we are able to better utilize the reports we print, and we are able to provide additional services to our customers. If we encounter a problem, BIAS staff are always available to help. BIAS is knowledgeable of current state requirements, assuring us that our system is updated to meet these changes. An added benefit is BIAS’ ability to adapt the software to meet Benton City’s needs. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with Benton City’s decision to switch to BIAS."

"The Town of Marcus found the BIAS Accounting System affordable and easy to use, with great tech support. This system has already paid for itself in terms of Clerk/Treasurer time and accuracy. It lightened the load. I would recommend this system for any town government, but most of all to small towns, such as ours."
