Canopy, the leading cloud-based practice management platform for tax and accounting professionals, today announced a free mobile application that enables tax professionals to access and update client information anytime, anywhere. It is compatible with both iOS and Android and is available on both Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.
Since starting Canopy, our goal has been to make the job of accountants easier so that their practices can be more productive, said Jordan Ray, Chief Revenue Officer, Canopy. With seamless experiences across both mobile and desktop, there is a lot of room to make accounting workflows more fluid. We are excited to offer the first iteration of our mobile app and look forward to continuing to simplify the day-to-day experience for accounting and tax professionals.
Canopy designed the new app to enhance and complement the work accountants perform at their desks with the long-term vision of covering important accounting use cases including client and teammate collaboration, task management, document scanning, dashboards and more.
Stay Connected, On the Go
Whether at the desk or on the go, accountants can access personal, team and client files directly from their device, including contact information, client records and tax documents. Accountants can also view, share files, capture key details, add new contacts and modify records on the go. Leveraging built-in file sharing functions, sharing files is simple and practitioners can communicate over native phone, messenger and email.
