(RIVERWOODS, ILL., October 5, 2009) – CCH’s IntelliConnect™, the new, award-winning research platform for tax and accounting professionals, is now connecting over 100,000 users to the authoritative answers they need to serve their clients. CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business, is a leading provider of tax, accounting and audit information, software and services (CCHGroup.com).
“Tax and accounting professionals have been moving to this exciting and easy-to-use platform at a fast pace,” said CCH President Mike Sabbatis. “The response to IntelliConnect has been phenomenal, and the adoption in just five months has been very successful. I attribute that to the thousands of hours of customer input that went into making the system so intuitive to learn and easy to use.”
IntelliConnect has attracted thousands of new professionals looking for comprehensive content and innovative productivity tools in a single package.
“We’ve seen a record number of new users license IntelliConnect because of the strength of CCH’s award-winning, in-depth content and the intuitiveness of the platform,” Sabbatis said. “Once professionals see it, they want it.”
Subscribers Appreciate Simplicity
While CCH offers effective, flexible training options, many users find they can become productive on IntelliConnect on their own. The ease with which users can get up and running on IntelliConnect has been noted by professionals who have led its introduction into their organizations.
Jeff Kramer, senior tax manager for a major paperboard manufacturer, had a pleasant surprise when he had to use IntelliConnect for the first time over a holiday weekend, with no prior training.
“A lot of times when you migrate…you’re just lost. But with this, I did it from home and within 15 minutes it found what I needed. That was such a relief,” said Kramer.
“Tomorrow’s generation will love it because they already know how to use it,” said Richard Jackson, partner in a small tax-preparation firm in Idaho.
“With IntelliConnect, it’s more like doing a Google search or an Amazon search. I know how to shop and I’m the Queen of Google, so that’s made it a whole lot easier,” said Lynn Alexander, tax manager of a printing equipment firm.
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.
“IntelliConnect is what professional research always should have been, but hasn’t been until now,” Sabbatis said. “IntelliConnect improves accuracy and efficiency, streamlines workflow and gives unprecedented access to CCH’s world-class content.”
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.
