NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting today announced that it has been named “Americas Tax Technology Firm of the Year” by International Tax Review. The award was presented at the International Tax Review’s 11th annual Americas Awards ceremony in New York on September 15.
This is the second year in a row that Wolters Kluwer has been recognized by the International Tax Review, having won the prestigious “Americas Tax Innovator of the Year” award in 2015 for its innovative CCH® IntelliConnect Browser Search research tool. This year’s award recognizes a tax-technology service provider whose process or system has improved the efficiency of an in-house tax department. Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting’s winning initiative, CCH® Axcess, is the tax and accounting profession’s first single-access, modular cloud-based tax solution that supports every area of firm operations for streamlined efficiency firm wide. A comprehensive cloud-based solution, the CCH Axcess Suite includes five powerful modules to handle all tasks associated with tax preparation, compliance and workflow processes.
"In an ultra-competitive tax technology category, CCH Axcess came out tops for the positive impact it makes every day as a tax preparation, compliance and workflow tool," said Ralph Cunningham of International Tax Review.
The Americas Tax Technology Firm of the Year award comes at the heels of another recent industry nod. Earlier this month, CCH Axcess was named best Tax Technology solution in the K2 Quality Awards recognizing leadership and excellence for technology solutions making a difference in the tax and accounting industry.
“It’s a great honor to receive the prestigious Americas Tax Technology Firm of the Year award and to once again be recognized for our innovative solutions by the International Tax Review,” said Jason Marx, CEO of Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting, North America. “We are committed to developing unparalleled solutions, like the award-winning CCH Axcess, that significantly improve productivity and efficiency for tax and accounting professionals.
