Thomson Reuters reaches 2,500th download of Mobile CS smartphone app
The Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters recently marked the 2500th download of its Mobile CS smartphone app introduced at the 30th annual User's Conference, October 27-30. The first mobile application designed specifically for tax and accounting professionals, Mobile CS gives Practice CS users access to key firm and client data anytime, anywhere on a variety of Apple mobile devices including the iPhone and the iPad.
The high demand for Mobile CS shows a move toward more individualized technology and a shift to greater reliance on cloud and mobile computing services according to Scott Fleszar, vice president of Strategic Marketing for the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters.
"Firms are adopting Mobile CS quickly, which speaks to the changing expectations in the tax and accounting profession," Fleszar said. "Accounting firms and their clients are already using iPhones, iPads, and other mobile devices to access data 24/7. So, we've taken advantage of mobile technology to extend the reach of our products in the way professionals like to access information today."
The initial release of Mobile CS provides mobile access to a variety of content from Practice CS, the comprehensive practice management software from Thomson Reuters. Information available in Mobile CS includes client data, staff availability, project status, and key firm data including WIP and AR, all in a convenient, mobile-friendly format. Future Mobile CS releases will offer access to additional CS Professional Suite application data.
A free, fully functional trial version of Mobile CS, which includes sample data, is available in the iPhone App Store. A paid license is required to sync Practice CS firm data to Mobile CS. For more information, please visit CS.ThomsonReuters.com/MobileCS.

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.
