 Step up to a fully automated, paperless tax preparation solution

AutoFlow Technology™ speeds data import.
Once all source documents are scanned and the PDF file is created, you can store it electronically for later use or take advantage of another built-in feature — AutoFlow Technology.  With AutoFlow, you can extract data from scanned, common 1040 client source documents and import them directly into ProSystem fx Tax. This process lets you:

  • Extract detailed Gain and Loss statement information to a pre-configured spreadsheet for easy reconciliation and import.
  • Facilitate verification of extracted information. Validation steps maintain the integrity of your data.
  • Take advantage of increased form identification accuracy, both for extracted and non-extracted documents.

For even more document control, add PDFlyer™.
Designed to emulate the tax preparation workflow process, PDFlyer is a powerful Acrobat® plug-in that lets you efficiently prepare 1040s using document imaging along with multiple PDF files in a paperless environment. With PDFlyer, you’ll be able to:

  • Simultaneously move pages when the associated bookmark is moved, whether that bookmark contains a single document scan or multiple pages.
  • Merge multiple bookmarked PDF files into a single file, combining the contents of common bookmarks.
  • Use up to five monitors simultaneously.
  • Create and attach digital adding machine tapes.
  • Use a set of CPA-specific tick marks and hyperlinked connectors.
