Thomson Reuters has enhanced Checkpoint, an information platform for tax and accounting professionals, as part of a continual optimisation programme to address customers’ changing business needs. Years of customer feedback have been incorporated into these updates.
The latest enhancements make it easier for tax and accounting professionals to sift information quickly and efficiently and to search through unparalleled content using new navigation options, so that critical decisions can be made confidently, even in a mobile context. Favourite documents can now be organised, flagged, annotated and followed up easily, enabling end-users to tailor Checkpoint’s features to support their unique needs and preferences.
“The latest upgrade and content additions to Checkpoint are an example of our never-ending commitment to providing our customers with an even more indispensible research companion,” said Steve Mendelsohn, president of knowledge solutions for the tax and accounting business of Thomson Reuters. “For example, in the weeks following this updated release of Checkpoint, we’re introducing new GAAP [Generally Accepted Accounting Principles] content and analysis, and then a new generation of workflow and decision-making tools in the fall. Later this year, Checkpoint Learning users will benefit from additional e-learning courses, efficiency enhancements and mobile technology. This will help improve industry knowledge and professional opportunities, as well as ease certification compliance.”
