incorporated integrated solutions to enhance client collaboration, tax
compliance and research workflows,and firm management are already
reaping the benefits. They are harnessing the data in their systems and
leveraging critical legislative changes to automatically identify growth
opportunities and proactively suggest new, value-add services to

Tax and accounting firms want to leverage technology but are looking for
practical guidance to help them separate hype from reality. While new
technologies open up exciting possibilities, it is often challenging to
translate the potential into pragmatic solutions. These are solutions
that will include

  • End-to-end, automated cloud-based tax preparation
  • AI-enhanced, highly intuitive tax research
  • A cloud-driven, Integrated Audit Approach that focuses on audit quality
  • Analytical practice management that helps leaders visualize data and
    gain insights
  • Artificial Intelligence to sort and identify clients for further
    communication and added services opportunities

“Firms today need the right technology partner. One that continues to
invest in development and innovation to infuse technologies like
artificial intelligence, machine learning or predictive intelligence
into the daily workflows in ways that are most meaningful to the
accounting professionals and their clients,” Kniphorst added. “Expert
solutions from Wolters Kluwer like CCH

to help firms and professionals deliver impact when it matters most.”
