Leading-edge technology is the cornerstone of CCH Axcess, the only Cloud-based modular tax preparation, compliance, and firm management solution built from the ground up – offering the profession's most powerful solution for complete firm management. And leveraging CCH Axcess on the go is even easier with the newly named and improved mobile app for both Apple and Android devices. CCH, a part of Wolters Kluwer is a leading global provider of tax, accounting, and audit information, software, and services.
"When we learned about the single database integration platform for CCH Axcess and its mobility features, we decided to switch everything over," said Karisa Chin, CPA and partner with the full-service, San Francisco-based tax and accounting firm of Devereaux, Kuhner & Chin LLP. "Being able to integrate our firm's current CCH solutions and having added flexibility to meet with clients outside the office and show them their tax returns or work papers on a mobile device is really nice."
Devereaux, Kuhner & Chin LLP recently joined the growing list of new CCH Axcess customers, choosing to implement the solution within the last month.
"From the feedback we're hearing from our strong customer partnerships, we understand that professionals want to maximize mobility to meet their clients' needs, while keeping everything simple and user-friendly," said Jerry Connor, CCH Axcess product manager. "By upgrading the solution's mobile capabilities and making critical functions available all under the CCH Axcess name, firms can 'pull the right technology levers' that make sense for them, choosing the modules and features that best fit their practices for now and the future."
Previously known as the ProSystem fx® Mobile app, the icon will now appear as CCH Axcess on mobile devices. Users can go directly to their app stores (Apple iTunes and Google Play) for direct updates or automatically receive an update prompt the next time the app is used, enabling easy downloads of the updated version with one touch and at no additional charge.
