Winooski, Vermont, May 10, 2011 -- CPA Site Solutions reports that client portal usage among their accounting clients increased 548.8 percent this year with 508.13 gigabytes transferred.
Client portals on CPA websites are used to securely exchange important tax documents with clients through their website. More secure than email, every client portal is password protected and includes access to tax data, financial statements, source documents, and software applications such as an online document management, interactive tax organizer, online accounting, and email marketing.
“Client portals are a cutting edge technology that has been well-received by our accounting firm clients,” says Brian O’Connell, President of CPA Site Solutions. “They are a valuable tool that positions an accounting firm as a technology leader.”
CPA Site Solutions expects the client portal trend to continue based on the dramatic rise in the use of client portals from 2010 to 2011 on their own clients’ accounting websites. During the 2011 tax season 235,729 files were transferred, up 277 percent from the 2010.
Number of Megabytes Transferred to the Portal
Tax Season 2010: 92,876 megabytes
Tax Season 2011: 509,701 megabytes
Number of Files Transferred to the Portal
2010 Tax Season: 84,987 files
2011 Tax Season: 235,729 files
