We Can Help

Set up is simple!

You will begin by entering your basic committee information. This information will be retained as long as your account is active to save you time from re-entering the data each time you prepare a report. Since you will have full control over the administrative options in your account you can add, edit, or remove users.

Simple Set Up

Data entry is a breeze!

Our system has been designed to make the process of entering your transactions as easy as possible. We've made everything very simple with easy to understand labels and instructions. Just in case you need a little extra guidance, every page throughout the system has a help button that will show you field specific details.

Entering Data is Simple

There's something for everyone!

Transaction reports can keep all members of the committee up to date. Each time a transaction occurs and the details are entered into your account, the information is immediately available for various transaction reports. You can also prepare deposit slips, keep records of outstanding bills, and stay up to date with cash on hand.

Keep Everyone Current

Disclosure reports available in minutes!

Reports are available whenever you need them. Simply go into the reporting section, pick the report number you want, enter the date range that you would like to cover, and within seconds you will be available to view, print, and submit electronically if you are so required by your filling officer.

Retrieval is Easy

You'll never be alone!

If you have any questions along the way our 24 hour technical support staff will always be available to help. We know how critical this information can be to a campaign and we want you to have the comfort of knowing that you have the industry's best support staff behind you 100%.
