CCH releases eBooks for accountants

CCH, a provider of tax, accounting, and audit information, software, and services, this week announced the availability of the company's most used titles in eBook form, including its U.S. Master Tax Guide and multi-volume publications.

“We’re an integral part of our customers’ workflow, which means we’re as mobile as they are. Our new eBooks are part of our overall commitment to ensure that however professionals choose to work, CCH resources will be right there at their fingertips,” said Mike Sabbatis, CCH president.
 
“Our eBooks offer a new link to productivity and are designed to make professionals as efficient and effective as possible – wherever they are,” Sabbatis added.
 
Accountants who have grown accustomed to shelves full of essential volumes of CCH books will appreciate having the same information available electronically.
 
Here are some of the available titles and topics:
  • Federal Tax
  • Federal Tax – Business Entities
  • International Tax
  • Multistate Tax
  • Sales and Use Tax
  • State Tax
  • Textbooks
  • Accounting & Audit
  • Finance
  • Estate Planning
 
Sarah Helvie, a channel manager for CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business, told AccountingWEB that the concept arose in response to CCH user comments.
 
“Our customer feedback showed people wanted an electronic version that was exactly the same as the print version," Helvie said. "Some clients use them together, so if they look at page 532 of the print version, they will find the same thing on page 532 of the eBook.”
 
Helvie said the use of electronic book readers really changed the industry, and the popularity of eBooks has exploded in the last couple of years. “CCH is looking to provide content and support whenever and however customers need it, so the eBook made sense,” she said.
 
While CCH users still find the print versions important, Helvie explained that eBooks have numerous advantages, including:  
  • Versatility. They are downloadable to laptops, desktops, iPhones,and iPads.
  • Mobility. EBooks go anywhere easily.
  • Efficiency. EBooks allow for keyword searches, can be bookmarked, and include embedded links for drill-down capability.
  • Affordability. CCH eBooks are identical in price to the print versions, and can be shared on up to six computers, Mac or PC.
  • Productivity. For all of the above reasons, accountants have the opportunity to greatly increase their productivity.
 
“The way I view what we’ve done,” said Helvie, “is that it is the first step on a path to more integration, more portability. This allows users to be more productive.
 
"Ultimately what we are evolving towards is giving users whatever content they need, whenever and wherever they need it. This is phase one," Helvie said. "It’s really exciting to watch as we start developing more integration points, integrating content into workflow solutions. This is just part of the vision of where CCH is going.”
