Built-in capabilities let you set up customized workflows, standardized processes, tasks, deadlines, clear responsibilities, a flexible document area, and more. The automatic due date tracking system reminds you in time to support you in completing tasks on time. Roll-forward your defined processes and tasks to the next year. Monitor your processes with a global view of your entire company down to the level of individual states or federal states.
Smart Collaboration is boosting work efficiency by facilitating challenging collaborations.
A questionnaire tool to collect non-system data
Gain and exchange insights about tax-relevant information from within your organisation. The tool enhances efficiency and effectiveness when gathering insights compared to traditional ways such as interviews. The solution uses the concept of social media platforms and combines this with strict access management.
Smart Survey offers you the possibility to create your own and individualized surveys by offering a wide variety of question types and decision trees. This enables a successful fact or structured information-gathering project.
Smart Tax Risks and Controls
A tax risk management and monitoring solution
The risk management tool offers a simple operational approach that helps you capture your tax opportunities, risks and risk mitigation plan. The clear visualization helps you to look at your risks in detail, to evaluate them and to get an overview of the risk history or the change in the risk profile over time. This further allows to use this data for reports to relevant stakeholders and to prioritize mitigation and resources in a hectic and complex tax world.
