(Riverwoods, ILL., May 28, 1999) -- CCH INCORPORATED, a leading provider of business information, today announced it has added a new suite of business services to its award-winning online service, CCH Business Owner’s Toolkit (www.toolkit.cch.com), AOL keyword CCH and Compuserve: Go CCH). The services are being provided through an agreement with DigitalWork, Inc., the Internet’s leader in online business services for the small business market.
Established in 1995, CCH Business Owner’s Toolkit (BOT) is a portfolio of information and software tools designed to help small business owners and home office entrepreneurs start, run and grow a successful small business.
The new, affordable services powered by DigitalWork include applications that help entrepreneurs carry out a range of activities they commonly need to conduct. These include the resources for collecting bad debt; finding temporary employees and recruiting for permanent employees; writing and distributing press releases and other marketing activities; researching customers, prospects and competitors; finding affordable telephone and shipping services; and backing up computers.
"The wealth of information contained in the Business Owner’s Toolkit, combined with the DigitalWork services, provide small businesses with an extremely valuable and powerful edge," said Martin Bush, publisher for CCH’s Small Office/Home Office unit. "Through the highly respected content within BOT, entrepreneurs have access to the knowledge they need about every facet of running a small business. They can then turn to the DigitalWork services to act on many of these issues."
Leveraging BOT content and DigitalWork services, entrepreneurs interested in what’s entailed in putting together promotional plans, for example, can find the information they need in BOT’s "SOHO Guidebook" within BOT and then use DigitalWork services to create banner ads or press releases. Similarly, small business owners can review in-depth information on recruiting, hiring and paying employees within the BOT content and then use DigitalWork services to help them with the recruitment process.
"As more small businesses turn to the Web to establish e-commerce or access business information, DigitalWork’s services can help them save time and money," said Craig Terrill, president and co-founder of DigitalWork. "Through the agreement with CCH Business Owner’s Tookit, we are providing expanded access to these easy, cost-effective services that enable a small business to get work done."
CCH Business Owner’s Toolkit has been singled out for excellence by a number of noted business organizations and publications, including Yahoo!, Home Office Computing, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times and the Information Industry Association. The online service includes extensive information including content that helps a small business owner start a business, market products, hire and manage employees, manage business finances, control taxes, build personal wealth and get out of a business. In addition, the site provides daily small business news, downloadable forms and checklists, sample contracts, a bookstore and online advice from "Ask Alice."
