CCH Launches ASP Version of Award-winning ProSystem fx Document

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., October 29, 2007) – CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business and a leading provider of tax, audit and accounting information, software and services, has released an ASP version of ProSystem fx Document, its award-winning document managing system for accounting firms. ProSystem fx Document ASP makes paperless workflows, a client portal, document retention management and secure backup available to firms of any size (

Recognized in the past three consecutive years on Accounting Today’s prestigious Top 100 Products list, ProSystem fx Document provides content management hosted by the firm. Now, ProSystem fx Document ASP provides the same robust capabilities and features on a secure platform where firm documents are hosted by CCH. CCH is the only provider that offers these two options for document management.

“Many firms have told us they want the benefits of document management, but don’t have the hardware and human resources that a firm-hosted system requires,” said Stuart Gill, CCH product manager. “With ProSystem fx Document ASP, we’re meeting their need for state-of-the art document management with minimal hardware and training requirements, plus they get a secure backup of all client files for business continuity in the event of a disaster.”

State-of-the-art Technology

With a quick start-up time and state-of-the-art technology, ProSystem fx Document ASP provides secure document transfer and storage. Users can access their documents at any time, from any place with an Internet connection.

Keeping track of documents is easy, with a customizable home page interface that reflects individual preferences and job requirements. For example, the home page can include recently accessed documents, tax returns, engagement binders, full search capabilities, and more, putting users one click away from everything they need.

ProSystem fx Document ASP also facilitates compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulations by managing documents’ retention periods. Document ASP lets users maintain an audit trail and version documents automatically.

Secure Remote Access

CCH has incorporated the highest level of security to facilitate document sharing, both internally and externally. Because electronic document storage gives firms the ability to securely work from any location, staff will save time that is otherwise wasted on waiting or searching for a required document. With instant and simultaneous access to documents, multiple reviewers can view the same document at the same time. A “Document Drive” allows users to work offline.

ProSystem fx Document ASP also gives clients secure, immediate access to their documents through the Client Portal. This enhances communication and collaboration and is more efficient than transferring documents on paper or via e-mail.

Integration, Streamlined Workflows

Integration with ProSystem fx Scan, Tax, Global fx and Engagement streamlines workflows and allows firm members to be productive from any location with Internet access. Users can even create a search in Document ASP that launches right into Accounting Research Manager®, centralizing and simplifying research. They can also manage applications like ProSystem fx Fixed Assets and QuickBooks without the concern of broken links due to versioning issues.

“Firms are using Document to streamline their workflows and bring a new vision to the way they work, as colleagues and as partners with their clients,” Gill noted. “With the launch of ProSystem fx Document ASP, we’re bringing those abilities to an even wider range of professionals, partnering with them to make true document management a reality.”
