We're excited to get started with our latest new customer

We’re excited to offer that keen insight and real dollars to our new customer, Bedford, Texas, through a series of in-depth revenue reviews and short-term rental administration.

At Azavar, we believe that local governments are often the best stewards of funds to support their communities. It’s best when local leaders can get the money due their municipality and share the most transparent picture of finances with residents and businesses.
