Testimonials

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you profusely for your help. I hope you and everyone at BIAS know how much you are appreciated!"

Debi Denton
Finance Manager/Treasurer
Lake Whatcom Water and Sewer District

"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."

Stephanie Hoegh
Finance Director
City of Benton City

"City of Asotin has been with BIAS since 2007 and I don’t know how we functioned before without it! The program is, without a doubt, the most user-friendly we have ever used. The capabilities that BIAS has are unmatched, especially when it comes to the Annual Report. All of their staff is knowledgeable and the customer support is fabulous! BIAS is A+!"

"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."
