Light4 & Capture

Our flagship accounting, timekeeping and expense reporting software redefine productivity and information availability. Strikingly straightforward interfaces provide intuitive gateways to comprehensive accounting, job costing and reporting power. And our applications welcome users of all experience levels.

Data input and system maintenance efforts are minimized. Quality output is maximized. Reports and data are instantly delivered to the PC and Mac desktops of authorized users as well as their iOS and Android devices...Goodbye complexity.


We’ve taken Light4 and configured and priced it for startups and newer operations. Not a “watered-down" version, but the same complete solution. Yes, unlimited employees, projects and more. We wouldn’t think of offering bold operations anything less...Add Time Capture for DCAA savvy timekeeping.

Delivered with a proven chart of accounts and more, you’ll be up-and-running (and audit-ready) almost instantly. It’s ultimately approachable...and smart. Discover it all in your demo of our new LightSTORMd App, built exclusively for iOS 8 devices.

Capture for Professionals

For independent professionals we offer our Capture family of iOS native apps. They’ve been designed specifically for iPads (and iPhones) and deliver desktop-class performance. Licenses also include companion PC and Mac desktop apps.

Experience uncompromising timekeeping, expense reporting and billing functionality with full DCAA compliance. You’ll record, analyze, bill and collect faster and better than ever....A “NeatDesk” super-alternative that truly “gets things done”. View documentation, download a free demo or buy now.

New Licensing Options

Flexible licensing options make sense.

Supplementing our standard permanent licensing, we’ve added annual licensing options for Light4, Capture and LightSTORM. And we provide annual licensors with generous credits toward later purchases of permanent licenses.

LightSTORM’s power and entry-level pricing will relieve most of considering QuickBooks and Deltek and their patch-
work of priced add-ons. And for current Deltek users, we have Light4 upgrade offers...The smart choice just got easier.

As It Should Be: Accounting Data is Secure, Accessible...and You Own It.

Your CCAS accounting data is protected with AES 256-bit encryption wherever it lives: whether hosted on a server, accessed by a client, or when at rest in a static state. When combined with strong CCAS user account access and permissions controls, you can be confident that your data is as secure as it can be.


And your financial data is now truly accessible: all that is delivered to PC and Mac desktops is also available on iOS mobile devices as a “client" or running “natively”. That is, an authorized user can run your Light4 or LightSTORM application on their iPad or iPhone with full functionality and desktop-class performance - subject to their access privileges, of course. The result: a new standard for online and offline reporting and analysis possibilities is created.

Because you’ll own them, you’re free to move your Light4 or LightSTORM applications to the “Cloud" of your choosing.

We have special offers for all Deltek users (and users of software of competing vendors). An example: we’ll replace your Deltek Costpoint software for the lower of our standard license fees or your annual software maintenance and support fees...Can the massive savings realized be applied elsewhere?

Good Software
Easing administrative burdens and contributing to productivity are the cornerstones of good software and systems. While some would have it that these attributes suggest excellence, we see them as fundamental qualities: why else software and systems? CCAS software goes a full step further, supporting less experienced staff in their advancement and freeing seasoned staff to focus on what they do best, and this with unrivaled cost-effectiveness. It's that simple.
