Accounting Firms Going Green

NSBN LLP Becomes "Paperless"

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - NSBN LLP (www.nsbn.com), Certified Public Accountants and Business Consultants in Beverly Hills, is pleased to announce that as of January 2, 2008, the firm took their final steps toward becoming paperless to bring in the New Year.

According to a July 2007 survey of accounting firms by CCH, 45% of firms now use electronic document management systems, and 32% have paperless engagements. Those numbers are certain to rise when more accounting firms realize the immense and varied benefits of going green. The latest growing trend in accounting is to become a "paperless" business, and more and more of them are jumping on the green bandwagon.

The decision to go paperless was not a difficult one for NSBN. "Our goal is to utilize technology to its fullest extent. Converting our office from a paper-based system to a digital format was the next logical step for NSBN," said Ken Miles, CPA, Managing Partner. "It benefits our clients, our firm and the environment." After careful research, NSBN chose ProSystem fx Document from CCH to manage their documents, and has been very pleased with its performance. "The Document system not only stores our files in an electronic format, it helps us create a uniform convention in our filing system. Given that nothing can be filed in the system without end-users giving pre-defined parameters, it helps us search for documents the way we never could before, which will increase efficiency overall," said Sharey Wang, CPA, Partner. "We as a firm have already taken the step in going 'green,' this transition helps us make the process even easier and readily available to all users."
