This webinar will explore how automation is transforming the tax engagement to support remote client relationships, enable collaboration, and reduce firm frustration. 

From the engagement letter and client organizers to collecting e-signatures and invoicing, client touchpoints include manual, labor-intensive tasks that are frustrating and far too time consuming. Automation is transforming the tax engagement life cycle! Now you can automate remote client interactions across the entire tax package, including engagement letters e-signatures, digital client organizers, K-1 distribution and signer delegation, e-file form e-signatures, and collecting payment of the tax prep fee. 

Clients expect you to deliver your services in a way that is convenient, collaborative, and safe during these challenging times. Remove the friction from your client experience! In this webinar, we will touch on the SafeSend Suite and how a secure, intuitive, and guided online tax return delivery experience for clients, including 8879 e-signatures, can elevate your firm’s image and fortify your relationship. In a time when more of your clients are working from home and require remote services, it is critical for your firm to offer a high-end online experience that is easy to navigate and adds value to your services.
