Intuit ProConnect Expands Partnership Ecosystem to Accelerate Software Capabilities for Tax Professionals

January 23, 2020 GMT

PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 23, 2020--

Intuit ProConnect is announcing plans to expand the capabilities in ProConnect Tax Online, Lacerte and ProSeries with new third-party integrations. The expanding partnership ecosystem will give tax professionals access to new tools to deliver on client needs, help automate compliance work and keep the software they know and love, with the added benefit of an enhanced workflow.

“We believe that meaningful relationships are at the heart of every interaction between clients and tax professionals, and reducing the compliance work will free up time so that professionals can focus more of their time giving valuable advice to their clients, helping them reach their goals,” said Barry Pennett, Intuit ProConnect General Manager.

Enhanced and expanded capabilities for tax year 2019 include:

Hosting for ProSeries and Lacerte

Expanded Intuit eSignature Capabilities

Improved Pay-by-Refund Enrollment and Signature Pad Integration

With new, impactful workflow integrations and accelerated capabilities, Intuit is also maintaining the security of Intuit products as a top priority, continuing to invest and ensure our platform and integrations have industry-leading fraud protection. As part of its ongoing commitment to protect customer information, Intuit has implemented multiple security measures in its professional tax products, including multi-factor authentication, an additional level of data encryption to help further protect data and in-product security tips.

“We are very excited about the new capabilities we will deliver to our customers as we work jointly with strategic partners to better serve the needs of the tax and accounting firm,” said Jorge Olavarrieta, Intuit ProConnect Vice President of Product Management. “We are enabling deeper integrations at the most critical points of the professional’s workflow to create a platform that allows them to more effectively manage their work and provides them with richer insights that enables them and their clients to grow and prosper.”

Integrations with trusted partners helps automate compliance work by working with your existing core tax software, freeing up more time for firms and tax professionals to deliver advisory services to clients. Intuit knows availability to tools that deliver on client needs is paramount to the productivity of firms, and with these new advanced capabilities, Intuit is working to increase functionality in the professional tax software, including ProConnect Tax Online, Lacerte and ProSeries.
