Hey, CPATechViews followers… the 2009 Tax & Accounting Technology Innovation Awards were just announced at the California Accounting and Business Show & Conference in Los Angeles on Monday evening. We Tweeted the results live during the presentation ceremony (www.Twitter.com/cpatechadvisor). This year’s winners are Bill.com for its self-branded online payables management system; Capital Confirmation, Inc. for the CONFIRM service, which offers secure, electronic fund confirmations; CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business, for the IntelliConnect online research platform; Copanion, Inc. for its GruntWorx Pro automated tax workflow solution; and SmartVault Corporation for SmartVault, a paperless document management add-on for QuickBooks. This is the sixth year of the awards, which recognize technologies that help both accountants in their own practices, as well as their small business clients. Our Executive Editor M. Darren Root, CPA.CITP presented the awards to representatives from each of the technology vendors, and offered insight into the growth of hosted/SaaS technologies for tax and accounting professionals and how they improve workflow and productivity. Honorable Mentions were also presented to four additional technology vendors: Alocet Incorporated for Method Integration; XCM Solutions, LLC for XCM Version 6.0 Workflow Management Software; LeapFILE for LeapFILE Secure File Delivery and Storage; and ShareFile for ShareFile for Accountants.
