SeeBenefits Logo

Our SeeBenefits software was designed for the Family Video Store chain based here in Springfield, IL before they changed to Highland Ventures, LTD. The program is still used by them today to allow employees at all their locations to log in and see information about their benefits, apply for the benefits that they want, and manage their benefits during their employment with the company. Employees that enroll in insurance plans will have their applications uploaded directly to the companies based upon just one enrollment process saving time, supplies, and money.

Tour Ticket Control

Written for the unique needs of the United States Park Services, the Tour Ticket Control software allows the rangers to manage the number and size of the tours through our 16th President's home here in Springfield, IL. Keeping track of scheduled tour groups, special needs, and counts to the park and home for management of the property, the system is able to be used on a touchscreen computer or Windows tablet in the future.
