The SIAN application uses Microsoft® .Net technology to provide a web- based document management system designed specifically for CPA firms and is considered a strong candidate to become the industry standard for professional service firms.

"At HA&W, we grew our revenue by nearly 50 percent and reduced staff costs by more than 15 percent as a result of the full adoption of paperless processes. The digital office is certainly moving closer to reality. Our firm was in the forefront of this work, so this transaction is a milestone moment for HA&W and its leadership commitment in our industry."
