We make the boring parts of your business quick & painless.

Giving you more time and money to do what you love

We built a product that you either need or you don’t.

It’s as simple as that. We created software for a very specific niche and when you need us, you’ll know it. If you’re on the fence you’re usually deciding between if it can do everything you need or if it does too much… at least that’s what we’ve found over the past 25 years.

If you’re looking for specific features for exactly how you run distributions, you’ll want to start here.

If you love QuickBooks and want industry detail, go ahead and watch a quick demo right now. We’re 99.9% sure you’ll love it.

Our clients come for the features, get excited about the massive amount of time shaved off their distribution process, but stay because we treat you like family.

And that’s not even a cliche.

We literally are a family here, (see who’s who below) and we can’t help but add you to it. It’s why we’ve had clients that have been using our software for more than 25 years. In the tech industry, it’s unheard of.

How we got started

More than 25 years ago, Phil, our owner and developer, built a custom software for oil & gas clients who needed a better way to handle distributions. He had just moved cross-country to start his own business and had no idea that this new project would turn into a 20+ year career. As you already know, the oil and gas industry spreads like wildfire through word of mouth, and that’s exactly how we grew too.

From working in his dark basement with orange shag carpet in the 90s to hiring employees and growing into offices, Phil’s focus has remained the same: Create oil and gas accounting software that isn’t painful to use or learn, and support it well.

He hates cold weather, (including air conditioning) and spends his weekends rising in the ranks at tennis, outdoors in nature, pumping himself up with Grant Cardone’s 10x principles and hanging out with his wife Luda.
