"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!"

"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

"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."
