The most important standards our software attempts to uphold are yours. This idea is fundamental to our work. Because our software focuses on the needs of contractors whose accounting may be subject to rules presented in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) - and enforced by the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) and other government agencies - we also make every effort to assure that your compliance with these regulations is complete and as easy and fluid as possible. So easy and fluid - and nearly transparently so - that if you didn't know what to look for, you might not even notice that it's happening.

What it All Means for Contractors.
Our pricing and new licensing options make our time-tested and field-proven software affordable for all. Affordable enough that cost can no longer be cited as an obstacle to the full accounting compliance and instant and comprehensive financial and job cost reporting capabilities of government contractors.
Our minimization of those efforts and costs usually required to get other software operational only strengthens our position. Given this, and based upon thinking consistent with that illustrated by DCAA's guidance on allowable "Airfare" costs, our software's pricing fairly challenges our competition's price ”reasonableness": per the FAR, "a cost..that does not exceed that which would be incurred by a prudent person in the conduct of competitive business.” Yet, apart from our enabling companies to allocate more of their indirect cost dollars to bonus pools and other worthy applications - or to simply reduce costs - other considerations remain…
With no add-on requirements whatsoever, we offer a GAAP and DCAA compliant solution that's complete, approachable and easily managed from the start. With all versions of Light allowing unlimited employees, our license agreement won't insist that we "share" in your success, but will instead assure our software's performance to help you achieve it. And our support - whenever needed - is second to none.
