Company Announcements: Week of September 10, 2012

CCH Small Firm Services (SFS) has unveiled ATX 2012, the latest version of the company's industry-leading tax software. The new software release is the culmination of an extended development process which focused on productivity gains and incorporated more ATX user input than ever before. ATX 2012 delivers improved efficiency, expanded client customization options and a fresh new user interface.

 
"ATX has been committed to helping tax and accounting professionals meet the daily challenges of their business for over twenty years," said Jeff Gramlich, president of CCH Small Firm Services. "The enhancements we've added to ATX 2012 make tax preparation as simple and stress-free as possible, and that's a testament to a lot of hard work by a lot of dedicated people who took the time to listen to what tax professionals said they needed and then turned those comments into the software enhancements in ATX 2012."
 
"The market is constantly changing and doing so at an increasing rate," observed Kerri Gibson, SFS Product & Segment Manager. "During development, we adopted a strategy of 'future proofing.' ATX 2012 is more adaptable to the changes continually coming at us, making future software enhancements easier to implement and guaranteeing that we will always be able to meet the evolving needs of tax and accounting professionals. As mobile technologies become even more widely used and cloud adoption becomes more widespread, ATX is positioned to incorporate those changes in ways which work best for the industry."
