Copanion announces integration with tax software vendors
Copanion, Inc., a provider of paperless tax workflow technology, recently announced that its premier paperless tax workflow application, GruntWorx Populate, now integrates with CCH's ProSystem fx Tax and Thomson Reuter's UltraTax CS.
GruntWorx Populate identifies, organizes, and labels scanned tax forms into a single bookmarked PDF file and then extracts relevant tax data to automatically populate individual tax returns. Integration between systems supports a paperless tax workflow and further enhances the advanced functionality of both ProSystem fx Tax and UltraTax CS by eliminating manual sorting and entering of client tax data.
"Our goal is to consistently identify ways to make the accountant's job easier.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
