New IBFD Platform will empower tax professionals with a significantly more efficient and effective international tax research experience
AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, Feb. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — IBFD today announced a completely revised version of its Tax Research Platform that has been redesigned and enhanced to ensure a simplified international tax research experience for practitioners that is more intuitive, efficient and effective. This complete overhaul of the IBFD Platform is its largest redesign and it provides a seamless experience across mobile and desktop.
The IBFD Platform is the leading, comprehensive online solution for international tax research. It combines country tax guides in several levels of detail, news, treaties, case law, easy-to-use tools and much more in one online solution that enables tax professionals to quickly access the vital information they need wherever they focus their work.
What can clients expect?
More intuitive: The design and navigation have been significantly improved by aligning with commonly known and proven interface design standards for all types of devices.
More efficient: The new IBFD Platform is not only fast, but the detailed search filters and superior functionality empower clients to quickly access and use the relevant information they need. Easy, streamlined access to actions, personalization settings and comparison functionality helps boost productivity.
More effective: Several enhanced features, such as support for having multiple documents open at one time, enable clients to navigate more efficiently between different sets of information, wherever they go, no matter what device they are using.
“Tax practitioners must navigate through a dynamic environment which is increasingly complex and which makes finding what you need and being well informed increasingly time consuming. Whenever we ask, they indicate that they need to be able to gather relevant information quickly and be alerted to relevant developments in the most efficient way possible and at the same time not miss anything. This allows them to concentrate and spend more time on their actual work as analyst, advisor, consultant, tax manager or tax lawyer,” said Maarten Goudsmit, IBFD’s Director of Publishing. “We understand these challenges and have taken a thoughtful approach to ensure we’re delivering a solution that creates more value for our clients.”
“When we were redesigning the Tax Research Platform, the central focus was to greatly enhance the total user experience for our clients,” said Jan Maarten Slagter, CEO of IBFD. “This required a complete overhaul which would enable IBFD to develop a solution that is more accessible, more user friendly, better searchable and more workflow-oriented. The launch of the new Tax Research Platform is an important milestone for IBFD and further solidifies our position as the home of international taxation.”
