With SPbinder, preparers can create open items and other notes that are automatically linked to the related workpapers. Then they can export the notes to email. Then I can get the email as the partner-in-charge, I can open SPbinder and quickly go to those pages and answer the questions, and leave a trail showing that it was me who answered it. So that was a process that gained efficiency.

1040SCAN did an excellent job of getting all the numbers out of brokerage statements… We could very easily get through multi-page Schedule D’s and out of maybe five or six hundred numbers that have to be imported into the return, there were only two or three numbers that had to be changed (in verification). So it was highly accurate.
