Essential Training – DIY
BIAS provides comprehensive “Do It Yourself” training for accounting activities such as Accounts Payable, Reconciliation, Payroll Processing, etc. with access to our Knowledge Base.
Essential Training – Guided
We work individually with you for each process through its completion. Because of this personal approach, you’ll feel confident removing the “training wheels” within a short period of time. After a of couple months, you’ll master the essential tasks and will naturally desire more knowledge on the theory (the “Why”) of governmental accounting. BIAS builds confidence by training to the best practices of Local Government Accounting principles including Fund Accounting, BARS Coding, Agency Reporting, and much more. These principles lay the groundwork for trust and integration into annual reporting. Reach out to our Operations Team for details and cost.
Since each BIAS Season occurs once annually, many of the solutions learned during a season may be difficult to recall on short notice. To meet this challenge, each season BIAS joins with professional partners to provide additional resources that become permanently available throughout the year. See links below.

"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."
