The Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters recently announced the release of a series of extensive enhancements to the NetClient CS client portal platform. The updates are designed to extend the portals to mobile devices and make them easier for clients to use.
“Today’s accounting firm clients expect their business partners and professional service providers to be available online. Mobile access and anytime-anywhere connectivity to the firm are important client service components,” said Scott Fleszar, Vice President, Strategic Marketing, Tax & Accounting, Thomson Reuters. “The new enhancements to NetClient CS make it easy for practitioners to exceed those expectations with a sophisticated, firm-branded interface that enables a very high level of collaboration and automation.”
The updated NetClient CS portal features a mobile app and redesigned navigational structure. The mobile app provides firms’ clients access to their NetClient CS services and content. Firms are still able to control which services are available. With the new navigational structure, NetClient customers can find documents easier.
“Mobile and cloud technologies are increasingly shaping firm workflow and changing the way professionals serve and communicate with clients,” said Fleszar. “And the new navigation structure makes it much easier to find what you need, whether you’re working on a PC or a touch-based mobile device.”
NetClient CS recently implemented more than 900,000 client portals for accounting firm clients. The portals feature payroll options, access to client accounting applications, real-time collaborations, client invoicing and credit card payment collection. Users can also access and share finished documents and tax returns.
