(RIVERWOODS, ILL., July 23, 2009) – CCH’s award-winning IntelliConnect™, the new, easy-to-use research platform for tax and accounting professionals, is now speeding over 60,000 users to the answers they need to save their clients money and assure compliance. CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business, is a leading provider of tax, accounting and audit information, software and services (CCHGroup.com).
“At a remarkable pace an amazing number of our research subscribers are now taking advantage of this exciting new and easy-to-use technology,” said CCH President Mike Sabbatis. “The smoothness of the transition since the end of tax season has been very gratifying but, frankly, not surprising, given the amount of customer input that went into making the system so easy and intuitive to use.”
IntelliConnect has also attracted hundreds of new subscribers who were eager to find in one place comprehensive content and innovative productivity tools that were easy to use.
“We’ve seen a record number of new users license the platform based on the ease of implementation and use combined with the strength of CCH’s award-winning, in-depth content and the intuitiveness of the platform,” Sabbatis said. “IntelliConnect is like professional research always should have been, but wasn’t until now.”
Subscribers Appreciate Simplicity
The ease with which users can get up and running on IntelliConnect has impressed professionals who have led its introduction into their organizations. While CCH offers effective, flexible training options, many users find they can become productive on IntelliConnect on their own.
“Someone can just sit down and look at the screen and adapt to it very quickly,” said Stephen Saferight, Tax Supervisor for HLB Gross Collins, PC, a regional accounting firm in Atlanta, Ga. “It will definitely reduce our training time and allow professionals to find solutions for our clients quickly and easily.”
“People are spending less time trying to figure out how to put together a search string,” said Jason Saathoff, Tax Manager for AmeriPride Services Inc., located in Minneapolis, Minn. “They can just type in some keywords and get going.”
Earlier this year, IntelliConnect won a 2009 Tax and Accounting Technology Innovation Award from The CPA Technology Advisor. The award recognizes innovative developments in technologies that benefit the tax and accounting profession, as well as significant advancements in existing technologies. The award marks the fifth time in six years that a CCH product has won the prestigious honor.
“We’ve changed the game in professional research with IntelliConnect,” Sabbatis said. “IntelliConnect streamlines workflow, improves accuracy and efficiency and gives unprecedented access to CCH’s world-class content. It’s something every professional in this field has to see, and once they see it, they want it.”
IntelliConnect offers a wide range of new features and benefits:
- Intuitive and innovative research capabilities mean IntelliConnect is easy to learn and use. Key functionality is exposed while creating a simple, modern interface. Everything is accessible from one screen.
- Search entire subscriptions means there’s no need to pre-select anything when initiating a search. Users can start broadly and then narrow the search.
- Filtering allows users to select different ways to sort results using filters. They can quickly scan through a long results list and locate exactly what they’re looking for.
- Tri-screen view enables users to see opened documents, as well as the search results list, all at once.
- Multiple tabs let users go back and forth easily between multiple searches.
- Easy searching and browsing provides the flexibility to use either or both Browse and Search to find desired information or documents.
- Search within a search allows users to easily refine results by searching within a set of search results.
With IntelliConnect, users don’t have to pre-select what to search. All of their subscriptions are included. When they find a relevant document, they can simply place it in a tray for later printing, e-mailing or pasting into a client document. A document placed in the tray Monday morning will still be there when the user logs off, even if that is on Friday afternoon.
