Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting Cloud-based Expert Solutions Named Finalists in 2020 SIIA CODiE™ Awards

CCH Axcess™ Knowledge Coach and CCH Axcess™ Client Collaboration solutions enable firms’ staff to work on audit engagements from anywhere and to collaborate with clients remotely

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting today announced that two of its latest additions to the award-winning CCH Axcess™ cloud-based tax preparation, compliance and workflow management platform were named as finalists in the 2020 Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Awards. Finalists represent the best products, technologies, and services in software, information and business technology.

“We are honored to be recognized by the SIIA Codie Awards for our innovative CCH Axcess Client Collaboration and CCH Axcess Knowledge Coach cloud-based solutions that combine new technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning with our deep domain expertise in tax, accounting, and audit,” said Jason Marx, chief executive officer, Wolters Kluwer Tax and Accounting North America. “These expert solutions give firms the tools they need to realize the full benefits of digital transformation, so they can better grow, manage, and protect their business and their clients’ businesses during these challenging times and beyond.”

The cloud-based CCH Axcess™ Client Collaboration solution was named as a finalist in the Best Collaboration Solution category. Launched last year, this new CCH Axcess module saves firms and their clients time when engaging, onboarding, and collaborating throughout the engagement. It provides each side with a frictionless online experience for all communication, from secure source document collection to document organization and storage, to e-signatures. The first release of CCH Axcess Client Collaboration focuses on the 1040 tax return workflow with subsequent releases covering the business return, audit, and general workflows.

Introduced in December, the cloud-based CCH Axcess™ Knowledge Coach solution was named as a finalist in the Best Emerging Solution category and is the first external audit module in the CCH Axcess portfolio. While allowing the auditor to exercise professional judgment, it tailors the audit based on the characteristics of the firm and the specific engagement by directly linking identified risks with audit steps, flowing the information throughout the workpapers where needed, and monitoring the engagement for completeness and compliance. By offering real-time contextual-based diagnostics, notifications, and updates, CCH Axcess Knowledge Coach enables auditors to collaborate online on an engagement and provides them with knowledge-based guidance and tools to deliver a complete, thorough, and compliant audit.

“The 2020 CODiE Award finalists join a long and distinguished history of innovative products and services destined to transform the way we do business. We congratulate all of our finalists and look forward to seeing their impact across the B2B market for years to come,” said Jeff Joseph, President of SIIA.

CCH Axcess is the accountant’s indispensable cloud-based platform for work/life balance, productivity and efficiency, talent acquisition and retention, and improved customer experience. Its adoption is growing across the profession as firms embrace integrated cloud solutions, built to work the way they do.
