On April 30, 2012, New River Innovation announced the major new release of its software for post-filing issues, Beyond415 (v. 2.2). Core enhancements include an updated interface, Client Gateway; expandability; and additional reporting features.
Core enhancements for this release include:
Client Gateway. Post-filing issues require ongoing communication with clients, from preliminary data and document gathering to client follow-up after the issue has been addressed. Beyond415's Client Gateway allows users to conveniently and securely communicate with their clients. When a document or message is shared in the Gateway, the recipient receives an e-mail alert. The recipient can reply in-line or create an entirely new message. Client Gateway is included with all Beyond415 subscriptions.
Expandability. With the latest version of Beyond415, users can easily create their own template document sets, categorize them by issue, and share them across the firm, allowing staff to leverage experience and knowledge. When a user selects a template document, the system prefills the document with client and firm data. Whether it's a federal, state, or local tax issue, Beyond415 equips firms to address it efficiently and effectively.
Additional Reporting. As part of the Version 2.2 release, Beyond415 now offers enhanced reporting features, giving authorized users the ability to examine specific work across the firm. This feature provides information and management capabilities to senior practitioners as they leverage their staff.
"We're always looking for ways to increase the feature set of Beyond415 while making it more intuitive to use," said Jim Buttonow, CPA, IRS practice and procedure expert, and cofounder of New River Innovation. "With our 2.2 release, we think Beyond415 is a product that can provide value to the smallest firms all the way to the BigFour."
