"We reduced the time spent bookmarking and organizing tax workpapers, improved our tax return preparation efficiency, increased our tax return review efficiency, and reduced our reliance on paper"
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.

“It works fantastic. For what we need it to do, SurePrep does an absolutely amazing job and I just don’t see how we could go back to manually [preparing returns]” – Brad Beasley
For many years, Beasley, Mitchell & Co. had a proven, paper-based 1040 tax return preparation system in place. Eventually however, the firm reached a point where they decided it was time to make the leap into the digital age. Though Beasley, Mitchell & Co. were initially doubtful that an automated and paperless 1040 process could outdo the paper-based system they had spent years perfecting, switching to 1040SCAN PRO and SPbinder has helped them accomplish exactly that. They are now a faster, more efficient firm that’s better suited for the digital age.
