Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting Asia Pacific, a leading provider of expert solutions for legal, tax, accounting, and finance professionals who make critical decisions every day, was recognized with a Gold Stevie® Award for its CCH iKnow solution, plus a Gold Stevie® Award and Silver Stevie® Award for CCH iQ Client Match solution in the eighth edition of the Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards. These solutions have innovated how accounting professionals navigate complex tax topics and leverage insights to build proactive accounting advisory opportunities.
“We welcome this strong industry recognition of our innovation roadmap for professional solutions that help Australia’s accounting professionals,” said Izzy Silva, Managing Director, Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting Asia Pacific. “The success of these solutions was evident during the global health crisis. Multiple pieces of new legislation were released to support the COVID-19 economic recovery. CCH iKnow kept our professional accounting clients up to date, and in turn, CCH iQ Client Match helped them automate communications with their own client base – ultimately generating 850,000 advisory opportunities for Wolters Kluwer clients.”
CCH iKnow was recognized with a Gold Stevie® Award in the Innovation in Technology Management, Planning & Implementation category. CCH iQ Client Match was recognized with a Gold Stevie® Award for the Innovation in Technology Management, Planning & Implementation Financial Services category. CCH iQ Client Match was also awarded a Silver Stevie® Award in the Innovation in Business-to-Business Services category.
CCH iKnow is a platform that is formatted into a comprehensive matrix of industry-leading content, expert analysis, and practical tools across 11 modules designed to help accounting professionals navigate the practice areas that best suit their firm. It helps accounting professionals understand complex tax topics quickly via its innovative 360-degree research functionality. Its relevant, in-depth, and balanced commentary, up-to-date data, and insights are prepared by the same team that powers the highly renowned Australian Master Tax Guide.
CCH iQ Client Match is based on innovative predictive intelligence technology, deep industry insights of Wolters Kluwer experts, and the benefits of its professional practice management software, CCH iFirm. The CCH iQ Client Match service profiles the accounting firm’s client database held in CCH iFirm, matching clients that are impacted by the tax event. Within minutes, all of the affected clients are grouped in one place - removing the need for the accountant to spend time manually aligning clients to tax events. Templated client letters and practical tools, such as calculators and impact statements, streamline an easy contact process with all affected clients and correctly apply the change to each impacted client.
Overall, Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting Asia Pacific was recognized for its innovation with seven Gold and Silver Stevie Awards, achieving Gold Awards for its CCH Integrator, CCH iKnow, and CCH iQ Client Match solutions, and Silver Awards for its corporate response to COVID-19, and for its CCH Pinpoint and CCH iQ Client Match solutions.
