Also at AICPA Engage 2018, Paychex and CPA.com, the technology subsidiary of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), will commemorate 15 years of partnership through the Paychex Partner Program. The program designates Paychex as the preferred provider of payroll, HR, and retirement services and offers special benefits to the clients of program members.
“For the past 15 years, Paychex and CPA.com have partnered to enhance the profession’s role as key advisors to their clients in all aspects of human capital management. Today, more than half of all CPA firms in the U.S. are enrolled and participating in the Paychex Partner Program, which provides unique value such as our accountant-specific user experience in Paychex AccountantHQ and a dedicated accountant service model,” said Maureen Lally, vice president of marketing at Paychex. “In partnership with CPA.com, we will continue to develop solutions that meet the evolving needs of accountants and their clients.”
“CPAs can bring great insight into payroll, retirement, and human resource administration decisions, so firms that can successfully integrate these categories into their advisory services practice can provide significant value to clients,” said Michael Cerami, vice president of marketing and business development for CPA.com. “Paychex is committed to working with CPAs toward this end and is one of our longest-standing strategic partners.”
Accountants also appreciate the inherent value that comes from aligning the HR expertise of Paychex with the firm know-how of CPA.com through the Paychex Partner Program. “Over the years, my experiences with Paychex have always been professional and their services have been delivered with a personal touch… I refer all of my clients to Paychex,” said Christian Hernandez, a CPA from Santa Monica, California. “Knowing that it’s a partnership program with the AICPA gives me and my clients great confidence.”
In conjunction with the conference, CPA.com and Paychex will also host an inaugural gathering of their new Accountant Advisory Council, bringing together a diverse group of accounting professionals to provide feedback and share insights on the profession, firm, and client objectives.
Paychex experts will also participate in a series of speaking engagements at the conference. Director of compliance risk Mike Trabold will lead the session “Top Regulatory Items on the Horizon. Are Your Clients Prepared?” on Tuesday, June 12 at 7:00 a.m. Additionally, senior manager of the retirement advisor channel Frank Tortora will participate in the panel discussion “The Role of ‘Robo’ in Defined Contribution Plans” on Thursday, June 14 at 11:15 a.m.
