GetNetSet, LLC (GNS) specializes in providing web sites for accounting and tax firms. Unlike many of the other solutions reviewed, GNS does not directly integrate with tax and accounting software. While that may sound like a negative, it actually can be a positive attribute in that they have built their system generically to work with other systems.  GNS offers  a very comprehensive website development feature set.

A listing of the more notable features of the GNS system includes:

  • Substantial library of website designs that can be further customized to personalize the website for your firm.
  • Integrated client portal for document storage and exchange via the cloud
  • Integrate fill-in and  electronically sign documents via the portal
  • Customized content writing by GNS team (cost of 7 to 30 cents per word)
  • Integrated newsletter service
  • Integrated credit card payment service
  • Email service provided, or integrate with your existing provider
  • Over 100 financial calculator utilities
  • Pre-built tax center with tax and IRS related content
  • Support for RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds
  • Embed videos into your website
  • Search Engine optimization tools
