CAP System

In January 2022, after years in development, we have officially introduced our CAP System, which stands for “Client Access Portal”. This unique, custom designed, cloud based system enables franchisors to know at a glance the status of all of their state registrations and how their FDD Update is progressing. CAP, combined with our flat monthly CORE billing, is the most cost effective way for franchisors of all sizes to have an efficient, accurate and simple compliance system.
