Streamline the data collection process

Data management, organization, and optimization

Most tax departments spend 80% of their time collecting and manually inputting data and 20% reviewing it. ONESOURCE DataFlow 2018 can flip those proportions and transform how you gather, use, store, and reuse data across your tax processes — increasing data management efficiency and enabling you to focus on what you do best: tax.

From foreign subsidiary tax packages, to questionnaires and information requests ONESOURCE DataFlow 2018 helps facilitate the data collection process around any activity.

Efficiently collect and store

DataFlow 2018 operates as a central hub for data collection throughout ONESOURCE.

Automate and standardize tax workpapers

The common templates in DataFlow 2018 can be used to standardize and automate tax workpapers. Numerous excel files can be streamlined into a common template offering consistency and standardization.
