ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 23, 2011—Thomson Reuters has announced the roll-out of its latest release of Mobile CS, the mobile app that links Practice CS to the Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. In addition to providing on-the-go access to firm information like WIP, AR, staff activity, and client interactions, the latest release offers a variety of new capabilities that make Mobile CS an even more functional tool for professionals on the go. The new capabilities include:
Time and expense entry: Mobile CS users can now enter time and expense entries on the go. The entries automatically flow directly into Practice CS.
Mileage tracking: Mobile CS can now track mileage in real time using iPhone GPS, or after the fact by calculating a route distance between two addresses. It can then use that mileage to create an expense entry that automatically flows to Practice CS.
Receipt tracking: Mobile CS can now automatically link iPhone photos of receipts to expense entries that flow to Practice CS, enabling firm members and administrators to view copies of receipts directly from a time and expense entry with a single click.
Call timer: Mobile CS can time outgoing iPhone calls, then use the dialed client to create a time entry that automatically flows to Practice CS.
“For more and more firms, mobile apps are becoming essential business tools for staying connected to the firm and to clients—they’re not just luxuries anymore,” said Scott Fleszar, VP, Strategic Marketing, Tax & Accounting, Thomson Reuters. “We’ve gotten many completely new ideas from our users and from our team, and it’s been great watching them take shape in a finished product. We’re enabling users to do things that were unheard of just a few months ago, so it’s a very exciting time for us.”
Mobile CS provides mobile access to a variety of content from Practice CS, the comprehensive practice management software from Thomson Reuters. Information available in Mobile CS includes client data, staff availability, project status, and key firm data including WIP and AR, all in a convenient, mobile-friendly format. Future Mobile CS releases will offer access to additional CS Professional Suite product functions and data.
A free, fully functional trial version of Mobile CS is available in the iPhone App Store. Once downloaded, any Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch user can try Mobile CS free of charge with the sample data that automatically comes with it. A paid license is required to sync Practice CS firm data to Mobile CS. For more information, visit CS.ThomsonReuters.com/MobileCS.
