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 smaller and start-up operations. Not a “watered-down" version, but the same complete solution. Just add Time Capture for server-free employee timekeeping. Unlimited employees, projects and more. We wouldn’t think of offering bold operations anything less.

As company’s find their “stride”, financial data must be fully supportive and close at hand. Shipped with a proven chart of accounts and more, you’ll be up-and-running almost instantly. It’s ultimately approachable...and smart.

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 Must Be: Accounting Data is Safe, Secure...and Close At Hand.

Protect your CCAS accounting data 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 safe as it can be.


Your financial data is now truly available: all that is delivered to desktops is also available on mobile devices. If necessary or desirable, your CCAS applications can be accessed from or be run “natively" on iOS devices as well. That is, an authorized user can run your Light4 or LightSTORM application on their iPad or iPhone with 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. Reduced are the labors of extracting and packaging requested financial data.

And it keeps getting better. Apple’s iOS 8 brings even more accessibility and parity with the desktop, providing welcome answers to questions just days ago uncontemplated, but which now make the best of sense.

The Contracting Cycle Continues: Bid..Win..Perform..Bid...

CCAS's Light4, Capture and LightSTORM are complete solutions that help insure that:

Your contract win is awarded without delay. Every day lost in dealing with pre-award surveys (audits) is lost income and will impact forecasted indirect cost rates, profitability and cash-flow.
You are always ready to track, report and support, and expeditiously invoice project costs and expenses, and this with full DCAA compliance.
You are always DCAA audit and Incurred Cost Submission ready. Audit readiness is a designed-in feature of all of our products. A novel notion: the “audited” becomes the auditor.
Your key balance sheet accounts stay reconciled, providing staff, management and third-parties with the assurance they need…and reducing accounting and compliance costs.
You stay ready to aggressively bid on any new or follow-on work. System-wide management and powerful, built-in, Ad Hoc reporting tools make job pricing as informed and accurate as possible.

Upgrade Now. Freedom from the Underperforming and Overpriced Is Here.

Whether from vendors ranging from Intuit to Deltek - the underperforming and the overpriced - our software exceeds them all. And our new licensing options make our software affordable for all users.

There will be no "nickel-and-diming.“ Unlimited employees, projects, accounts and more are always available in Light4 and LightSTORM. As to user licenses, the number you’ll need is the quantity of your authorized employees or other users that are to be able to simultaneously access your software over networks - not all employees or users, past and present. With no add-on requirements and no need for an army of consultants to become truly “functional”, what you’ll have is a field-proven, complete, approachable, and easily managed DCAA compliant solution from the start.

And we have special offers for all Deltek users. An example: we’ll replace your 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...or simply enjoyed?

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.
