CPA2Biz, XCM Solutions form alliance to increase CPA efficiency, productivity
CPA2Biz, a national provider of Web-based solutions for CPAs, and XCM Solutions, LLC, a provider of work-management technology for the accounting profession, have formed a strategic alliance. The agreement brings XCM Solutions' workflow automation capabilities into CPA2Biz's Trusted Business Advisor Solutions cloud computing platform.
Designed by CPAs for the CPA profession, XCM is an intuitive, Web-based application that automates and standardizes processes for completing work throughout CPA firms and in all departments, including audit, tax, consulting, and human resources, according to the company.
"XCM replaces the cumbersome and inefficient manual process of moving paper files through the office and centralizes important task information typically housed in disparate applications, paper files, and routing notes," said CPA2Biz CEO Erik Asgeirsson. "It helps eliminate countless non-billable hours chasing returns or looking for files. Firms of all sizes can use XCM as a strategic management tool to increase efficiency and improve customer service. CPAs can turn the productivity improvements into more billable hours and a greater profit margin."
XCM is a standalone work-management solution for the entire CPA firm. The company's Version 7.0 elevates work management from a departmental function to a complete, firm-wide solution. It provides a full picture of all work within the firm.
"This alliance represents a significant recognition of workflow software as a foundational element of a paperless office and of XCM as an important solution to the accounting profession," said XCM Solutions CEO Mark Albrecht, CPA, MST. "We truly believe in CPA2Biz's vision for offering firms a suite of best-in-class products and are very pleased to be a part of the CPA2Biz platform."
XCM Solutions joins Bill.com, Copanion, Intacct, and Paychex as part of CPA2Biz's Trusted Business Advisor Solutions platform. With cloud computing transforming accounting firm practices, CPA2Biz selects partners who have a leading application serving a core accounting function that can be easily integrated into other leading applications. CPA2Biz believes that through this approach, it can deliver optimal value and the highest quality service to CPAs worldwide.

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.
