Sorge CPA adopted SurePrep's 1040SCAN & SPbinder to standardize their tax workflows according to best practices & tax workflow automations.

Huth Thompson LLP

Solutions in Focus: 1040SCAN, SPbinder
Huth Thompson had already made the leap to a paperless process, but they were still looking for a solution that would scan, organize, and populate data at an highly efficient rate with an emphasis on standardization. We spoke with Cindy Bupp, EA, Manager, to discuss why 1040SCAN was the right solution for their firm’s proactive, diligent tax philosophy.

It would be 7-10 days in peak time for a return to get through review. Now we're looking at 3 or 4.

Beasley, Mitchell & Co.

Solutions in Focus: 1040SCAN, SPbinder
When Brad Beasley, Leading Partner at Beasley, Mitchell & Co. decided it was time to make the leap into the digital age, he was initially skeptical if an automated 1040 tax automation process could outperform the paper-based system they had spent years perfecting. However, switching to 1040SCAN PRO and SPbinder has accomplished exactly that. They’re now a faster, more efficient firm better suited for the modern era.

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, Partner, Beasley, Mitchell, & Co.

Bradshaw, Gordon & Clinkscales, LLC

Solutions in Focus: 1040SCAN, SPbinder
We spoke with Ricky Adams, Tax Manager at Bradshaw, Gordon & Clinkscales, LLC about choosing SurePrep’s 1040 tax document automation solutions to achieve the firm’s goals. Ricky discussed the keys to 1040 tax return productivity and noted that their realization rates improved across the board. 1040SCAN ORGANIZE’s automatic bookmarking and standardization alone saves them as much as 30 minutes per-return.

We’re not having to sort through workpapers as they come through the door. Our preparers can simply find what they’re looking for at the click of a mouse.

Kevin Frank is a taxpayer who recently moved away from his local CPA firm and wondered how he could still deliver documents and get assistance without dropping by their office.
