"What's really exciting about the newest enhancements to Accounting CS and Accounting CS Payroll is that they improve the flow of data, yet keep the firm in complete control. This creates a lot of new possibilities for practitioners, and these new enhancements will help them collaborate even more," said Scott Fleszar, vice president, Strategic Marketing, Tax & Accounting, Thomson Reuters. "Since the initial release of Accounting CS in 2010, we have seen firms use it to reshape the ways they serve their business and payroll clients. The easy client setup, the unprecedented real-time collaboration between firms and clients, and the flexible report customization options are helping them move their practices forward and serve clients in ways that weren't possible before."
