Create your own reports menu to contain only the reports you need rather than the hundred+  that are available to you.

Fresh Ideas Always

Every dioceses likes to manage their parish savings and loan accounts in different ways and in the way that they want. Because of that, new features, functions, and reports based upon the requests of our many users are always being added to the program. From adding new fields, reports, or features to make your daily workload lighter and faster for you. Once added, the new items are available to all the dioceses using the Adv Edition to get and use. 90% of DLS Financials started as an idea from one of the 65+ clients who asked the simple question, "Can you have DLS to do this?"

Excellent Features

While you may not need every feature within DLS Financials, you can be assured that the software will have the ones that you want and need today and in the future. Even if you find out later that you need something, it can be added to DLS for you quickly and when you need it for little to no charge if you have an annual support contract!

Savings Accounts

No matter if you use just simple interest savings or fixed term CDs, you can use either one in DLS Financials. With features like account classification, category, and restrictions you can easily filter reports to get just the information you need. Restrictions include requiring special approval before making withdraws as well as preventing account holders from getting into restricted funds.

Attached Documents

In the location, savings or loan account, and transaction records you can include documents, spreadsheets, images, and other files. These records are actually saved in with the data, so even if the original files get lost, you are always able to view, print, and recreate them from the data file. This allows the documents be always be backed up with the data.


Loan Accounts

There are four different types of loan accounts: Simple Interest, Amortized, Simple-Amortized©, or Fixed Principal. Each of these work in very different ways and can also be classified, categorized, or restricted so that you can filter to report just what you want. Credit limits, billings, schedules, and so much more are available.

Web Portal

DLS Online is available for the parishes to log in and view their savings, loan, and pooled investment accounts, print statements, and download data. Coming soon will be the ability to let parishes submit requests and loan applications through DLS Online and have these requests go though an approval process you set up before being created automatically in DLS once approved. Using RDP, the corporate employees and run DLS anywhere in the world via the internet as if they were at their desks.


Pooled Investments

Set up any number of investment funds in which parishes can invest in with the other parishes. There are two ways to manage these pooled funds with actual fund values or by adding and removing values based upon your own formulas. DLS Financials also disburses dividends earned or fees paid fairly to all parishes based upon the percentage of the fund they own with a simple click of a button.

Excellent Support

The Computer Department, Inc has 24/7 phone support. While you may work 9-5, it doesn't mean that you are in the same time zone. As more dioceses started using RDP so that their workers could work in DLS Financials safely at home during the pandemic, help could be needed at any time of the day including weekends and holidays. With a support agreement contact, you can get support whenever you are working; day or night.
