(NEW YORK, NY, September 27, 2017) — The Tax and Accounting division of Wolters Kluwer is pleased to announce that it has been recognized in the 16th annual K2 Quality Awards for excellence in the areas of Audit Technology and Practice Management Technology. The awards honor technology providers that exemplify quality in their solutions and are leading the accounting profession into the future.
K2 Enterprises awarded Wolters Kluwer top honors in the Audit Technology category for CCH® Audit Accelerator, the cloud-based data extraction and analytics software for accountants that automates and streamlines audit preparation and enables firms to provide value-added services to their clients. CCH Audit Accelerator is part of Wolters Kluwer’s Integrated Audit Approach, which focuses the audit process on auditor judgment, facilitating their ability to make informed decisions rather than using a tool that makes decisions for them. Just this month, CCH ProSystem fx Engagement integrated with CCH Audit Accelerator, making it easier than ever for professionals to seamlessly access and utilize the time-saving data extraction and analytics software solution. With this integration, new features have been added to CCH Audit Accelerator making it simpler for users to format and import data. Additional integration features are expected to launch in the coming months.
Wolters Kluwer was also honored for its leadership in developing Practice Management technologies, including CCH ProSystem fx Practice Management and the cloud-based CCH Axcess Practice. Both are full-featured software solutions that aid firms in effectively managing their workflow with effortless time entry, efficient billing, proactive management of receivables, organized contact management and powerful reporting capabilities. This year, among other CCH Axcess enhancements, Wolters Kluwer announced the new Data Axcess APIs and Data Axcess utilities to help firms integrate with third party report writers and business intelligence systems. Later this year, new electronic payments functionality will be added to allow firms to receive e-payments from clients.
“It’s reaffirming to be recognized by K2 for both our audit and practice management solutions,” said John Barnes, Vice President of Product Management, Wolters Kluwer Tax and Accounting North America. “These wins echo what our customers have been telling us and confirm that we are meeting our goals in developing innovative, time-saving solutions for tax, accounting and audit professionals.”
This recognition adds to a long list of prestigious wins for Wolters Kluwer Tax and Accounting, including recently being named the 2017 “Americas Tax Technology Firm of the Year” by International Tax Review.
