Strategic Alliance Between Fujitsu and SpeedTax
The market leader in document imaging scanners and services, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, and the provider of Software-as-a-Service Fully-Automated Sales and Tax management solutions, SpeedTax, announced a strategic alliance between each other thanks to which hands-on marketing tools will be delivered in order to help North American accounting firms to better serve their customers and clients and also promote firm growth throughout adoption of smart technology.
The combined leadership of both companies will translate into business value for Fujitsu and SpeedTax customers courtesy of the new alliance.
“Fujitsu has demonstrated a strong commitment to the CPA community, and today’s announcement shows excellent continued forward progress in helping firms understand how combined technologies can fit together as a total solution,” said Jeff DeCarlo, senior director of business development, Fujitsu Computer Products of America. “Our work with SpeedTax, and associations with key industry voices like Jim Bourke, allow us to reach more accounting firms and ultimately help a greater number of CPAs overcome hurdles and more efficiently service their valued clients.”
“As technologies related to document management and sales tax compliance have captured increased mindshare among firms in the past year, there’s been a much greater need for mission-critical information related to how to onboard the right solutions and bring it all together,” said James Bourke, CPA.CITP, partner at WithumSmith+Brown. “Fujitsu and SpeedTax have taken the lead in forming an alliance that will provide real tools that firms can access to become better informed, provide better service, run more smoothly, and achieve a competitive edge.”
“We’re very pleased to have found a partner in Fujitsu who shares our passion for working with CPA firms to help them improve client service, substantially improve the way their business operates, and offer new services that add value and increase overall profitability,” said David Lahey, executive vice president at SpeedTax. “SpeedTax is looking forward to a long-term alliance with Fujitsu that delivers real value for firms across North America.”
