GruntWorx Scanning


Most tax professionals agree that scanning tax documents is more productive than the alternative—hours in front of the copy machine, burning through reams of paper. But the real question is not to scan or not to scan—it’s when to scan. There are two basic camps of firms that have already incorporated scanning into their workflows:  firms that scan on the front-end and firms that scan on the back-end.

When you scan sets the stage for the level of efficiency gains your firm can realize as a result. Firms that scan tax documents on the front-end position themselves for a completely automated and highly efficient paperless tax preparation process, whereas firms that scan on the back-end lay the foundation for electronic archival.

Take a look at our scanning resources to find out what’s best for your firm.
