Request information

Your practice relies on information. Information about your clients and their businesses; information about the tasks that have to be performed and the resources available to carry out the work; information about time, fees, profitability and WIP.

The chances are you’ve already got all the information you need. The challenge is making sure that everyone can make best use of it.

CCH Central is more than just a central database. It provides an environment in which programs within the CCH ProSystem Suite can intelligently share information. And it makes that information available, wherever and whenever it’s needed.

  • Custom views – CCH Central works across the CCH ProSystem Suite, combining information from multiple applications on a single, customisable ‘home page’. Everyone within the practice gets to see what they need, when they need it, in a way that suits them.
  • Quicker results –The intuitive, browser-style interface makes it easy for everyone – even occasional users – to find what they want. Because CCH Central operates across the CCH ProSystem Suite you only have to learn a function once to be able to use it anywhere.
  • Greater insight – See at a glance what’s important this minute or this month. Whether you’re a partner checking fees and profits, a manager monitoring deadlines and workload or a member of staff performing tasks and entering timesheets, CCH Central shows you exactly what you need in order to do your job.
  • Better client service – Get a complete picture of your clients and your practice, without having to swap between individual programs. Integrated workflow tools help you allocate resources, monitor deadlines and avoid bottlenecks.
  • Enhanced practice development – Integrated marketing tools - such as a powerful, in-built bulk emailing function - allow you to promote your practice more effectively, generating additional fees for extra services and attracting more clients. Simple drag and drop reporting opens up your practice data, making information instantly accessible without the need for specialist reporting tools.

Integration in action

CCH Central is at the heart of the CCH ProSystem Suite. Applications within the Suite share data through CCH Central, making information readily available throughout the practice.

  • Strategic decision making – When used with CCH Practice Management, the customisable home pages of CCH Central make the key indicators of practice efficiency and profitability instantly available for scrutiny by partners and managers.
  • Cross-application and cross-client reporting – Use CCH Report Writer to draw together information from across the CCH ProSystem Suite. Filter clients by any combination of characteristics, including earnings, business size and type and fee income to identify consultancy and fee earning opportunities.
  • Integrated marketing tools – CCH Campaign Management enables you to profile and market to your clients and prospects using the information you already hold about them.
