Thomson Reuters Checkpoint Wins 2011 Tekne Award for Technology Services
The Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA) recently named Thomson Reuters as a 2011 Tekne Award recipient in the category: Technology Services & Consulting in an Established Company. The award honored Thomson Reuters Checkpoint for its continued leadership in online information, recognizing its new enhancements released on June 13, 2011.
For more than a decade, Checkpoint has provided a platform for tax, accounting, audit, and finance professionals. The enhancements released last June built upon Checkpoint’s existing strengths and included a redesign of the user interface, intuitive workflow features, advanced personalization, search features, and mobile accessibility through tablets.
“I’m very proud that our product development group has been recognized for their consistently extraordinary work. Their efforts in the latest evolution of Checkpoint, which earned them the Tekne award, underscore our direction to extend beyond research, reaching more deeply into our customer’s workflow. This supports the processes that begin before, and end after, the traditional research takes place,” said Steve Mendelsohn, president of Knowledge Solutions, the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters. “Checkpoint has evolved into a blend of cutting-edge technology, expert editorial insight, primary source materials, time-saving productivity tools, online learning, and news updates -- all in an integrated offering that delivers intelligent information to solve our users’ day-to-day challenges.”
“This year’s recipients, once again, raised the bar with the quality and originality of their entries and should all be very proud of their accomplishments,” said Margaret Anderson Kelliher, president & CEO of MHTA. “We are thrilled to recognize Thomson Reuters for its proven leadership and commitment to technology development in Minnesota.
MHTA presented the Tekne award to Thomson Reuters representatives at an award ceremony in Minneapolis, MN. on November 3.
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.
