This is the fifth time a CCH product has been honored with the prestigious award.

“We’re honored that CCH’s ongoing commitment to innovation has been recognized again with this award,” said CCH President Mike Sabbatis. “IntelliConnect is unmatched in professional research for its ease of use and we’re thrilled that tax and accounting professionals have recognized this.”

The new platform was built from the ground up based on customer feedback.

“We share this award with our customers, who participated in hundreds of hours of interviews and testing to produce a new model for tax research that enhances their productivity and efficiency,” said Sabbatis.

The Innovation Awards are sponsored by The CPA Technology Advisor to recognize innovative developments in technologies that benefit the tax and accounting profession, as well as significant advancements in existing technologies. The awards were announced by M. Darren Root, CPA, CITP, Executive Editor of The CPA Technology Advisor, at the 2009 California Accounting & Business Show.

“The winners of this year’s awards demonstrate the strength of the technology market for tax and accounting firms, and that there are abundant choices for these professionals,” Root said. “CCH’s IntelliConnect is a good example of the approach taken by all the products honored this year. Although this year’s winners span the spectrum of professional services, they are all web-based, marking the continued growth and acceptance of such systems by tax and accounting professionals.”
