CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business, recently announced that WSG Systems is the newest partner to join its Open Integration Platform. CCH, provider of tax, accounting and audit software, launched Open Integration in June as a way to provide seamless, secure integration between CCH solutions and third-party applications.
“We were hearing from our customers who asked if we could build integrations into their current CCH solutions,” said Bill Cornfield, WSG Systems President and Founder. “The opportunity to provide our solutions through CCH’s Open Integration Platform was truly a win-win for our customers and our business in generating more awareness of our applications to everyone connected through the platform.”
WSG Systems currently provides time entry, project accounting, resource management and CRM solutions to more than 20,000 business users in more than 40 countries worldwide. WSG Systems is joining Templeton Solutions, New River – Beyond414, AccountantsWorld and XCM Solutions as third-party partners for CCH’s Open Integration Platform.
“CCH’s Open Integration Platform is a complete game-changer in the way value is delivered to the industry. Professionals can quickly connect to the software tools and applications they need to meet their workflow and research needs,” said Christian Wolfe, CCH Business Intelligence & Strategy Vice President. “With partners such as WSG developing professional services applications for CRM, project accounting, resource management and time and expense entry that can be leveraged across our platform’s service oriented architecture, firms can combine applications they love with their CCH SaaS solutions to fully support their technological ‘ecosystem’ and maximize their cloud capabilities.”
CCH’s Open Integration Platform is designed to increase productivity and efficiency by allowing select applications to integrate within each other and includes solutions developed by CCH, third-party providers and applications created within a firm or corporation. Client, staff, administrative and security data are among some of the capabilities featured in a single database that is shared across the multiple participating applications. Users have access to an integrated workflow through variety of solutions from different providers.
CCH provides interested vendors with software licenses and tools, technical training opportunities for developing and testing integrations and CCH’s SaaS platform Open Integration kits. The kits include tutorials for successful integration with CCH’s ProSystem fx Suite.
“CCH’s business philosophy underscores partnership, enablement and facilitation of the success of the entire profession,” added Wolfe. “We help professionals in firms of all sizes advance their business competitiveness and increase their relevancy to their clients. With the Open Integration Platform, we’re leveraging the innovative power of the marketplace so that CCH can drive higher value to our customers than any one vendor can as a stand-alone provider.”
