COPANION ANNOUNCES ADDITION TO GRUNTWORX FAMILY OF PRODUCTS - GRUNTWORX TRADES
Powerful line of software extends paperless functionality for firms
ANDOVER, MA – September 10, 2009 – Copanion, Inc., the leader in tax document automation, today announced the addition of GruntWorx Trades to its family of applications. The Trades application complements Copanion’s award-winning and proven core products - GruntWorx Organize and GruntWorx Pro. Accounting professionals can now select the application or combination of applications that best meet their needs. Each application supports a fully paperless and automated tax workflow
"Extending our product line provides firms with a host of SaaS options that support a paperless workflow and help them better serve their clients," said Steven Ladd, CEO of Copanion.
Each application offers best-in-class accuracy and intuitive, easy-to-use features. In addition, GruntWorx Organize and Trades work with universal file formats and applications, such as PDF and Microsoft® Excel®. The GruntWorx family includes three powerful products:
- GruntWorx Organize is the profession's leading scan and organize tax document automation solution. The product automatically identifies, organizes, and labels scanned tax forms into a single bookmarked PDF file—complete with issuer's name.
- GruntWorx Pro offers all the functionality of GruntWorx Organize and, in addition, extracts data from bookmarked documents and imports the data into a firm's tax preparation software.
- GruntWorx Trades automatically transforms trade details on scanned 1099 Consolidated Brokerage Statements into a standard Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. This allows for easy manipulation and import of trade details.
"Working closely with accounting professionals, we know that brokerage statements are one of the most common forms published, and the most time-consuming when manually entering the data," stated Ladd. "We developed GruntWorx Trades to minimize this pain point for tax preparers. The Trades product identifies all variations of Consolidated Brokerage Statements and automatically converts trade details into a spreadsheet. This translates into immense time savings and immediate ROI for firms."
The GruntWorx family of products has been in use over the course of multiple tax seasons by thousands of accounting professionals - from sole practitioners to those working in Big Four and large regional firms. Copanion products have also earned back-to-back technology innovation awards for GruntWorx Organize and GruntWorx Pro in 2008 and 2009.
