Using Mobile Devices with the CS Professional Suite

CS Professional Suite May 29, 2013

If there’s a term in the technology world that’s hotter than “mobile,” we haven’t heard it. 

With good reason – tablets and smartphones have liberated us from our desks, our offices, and even our workplaces. Today’s mobile technology allows practitioners and their clients to work on the go without sacrificing function or quality. 

In case you’re not familiar with all the ways you can use your tablet/smartphone with the CS Professional Suite, here’s a quick primer: 

Virtual Office CS/Software as a Service (SaaS) – Whether you’re a Virtual Office CS or SaaS user, with a quick download of the ICA Client you can access your CS Professional Suite applications through your tablet’s browser, viewing and modifying data in real time wherever you are. No laptop needed! 

Practice CS – Use Mobile CS to access on-the-go information like helpful client and staff data, as well as key firm data such as work in progress and accounts receivable. Mobile CS gives you the ability to review client interactions before an important meeting, check staff availability when you’re out of the office, view the status of a project, and much more. 

NetClient CS Portals – In November 2012, we released the NetClient CS mobile app, an extension of the NetClient CS portal services. This free app gives your 1040 and business clients on-the-go access to tax returns, financial statements, online accounting and payroll services, payroll data, and much more. 

myPay Solutions – Are you a referring accountant for myPay Solutions? Talk to your representative about the myPaySolutions mobile app, a payroll application for employees of clients who use myPay Solutions. The free app enables employees to perform a variety of the most common payroll activities in real time from their smartphones or other mobile devices. 

ARNE – If you participate in ARNE (the Accountants Resource Network), the free online community created especially for accountants, take advantage of the free ARNE mobile app to take the conversation with you wherever you go. 

These quick, convenient mobile apps let you access the information you need to know, whenever you need to know it. They’re a great way to stay in touch with your firm – no matter where you happen to be.
