Many tasks that accountants need to perform like bookmarking and organizing workpapers, signing off workpapers, merging subsequent documents like a late K-1, communicating between staff members and incorporating file types such as Microsoft Word and Excel are time-consuming and difficult to do in Adobe Acrobat, if you can perform them in Acrobat at all. SPbinder performs these and many other accounting related tasks with ease.
