CCH User Conference 2017: Day 1 Highlights

Fresh Insights Into the Future of Tax & Accounting

What does a future-ready tax and accounting firm look like? #CCHUC17 attendees set out to answer this question as the conference kicked off the first full day of programming. Defining “being future-fit” and identifying the best strategies, practices, and solutions to achieve this are the focus of this week in San Francisco. 

The Future Is Now 

“Future-ready firms know that the future is now,” said Jason Marx, CEO of Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting North America, in his keynote address during the First General Session. The rapid pace of change in communication technologies has transformed client expectations of the service and value their firm delivers. In the mean time, tax and accounting businesses feel pressure to find intelligent, simplified outcomes to increasingly complex scenarios. 


Future-ready firms are already adopting solutions that address these challenges, and it’s where Wolters Kluwer has its eye. “As your technology partner, we’re not just trendwatching; we’re trendworking,” Marx said. “We’re creating solutions that enable and empower you. We’re designing technology to be on your side. We’re putting you in control. We drive technology forward so you can be in the driver’s seat.” 

Fresh Thinking on Show 

The future-ready focus continued in the first-day breakout sessions, with tracks ranging across industry hot topics, firm management and talent development, and technology.  Attendees had many things to say about the first day, via Twitter whether it be about concepts or product advancements.

Wolters Kluwer also showcased several brand-new enhancements to the CCH Axcess™ and CCH® ProSystem fx® solution suites. “Whether it’s creating new efficiencies, increasing workplace and remote productivity, or helping increase firm profitability, we’re committed to providing our customers with innovative technologies,” said Tax & Accounting North America CEO Jason Marx.
