Configure your home page
Configure CCH Central the way you want and easily access all the information you need about your client from a single application.
In CCH Central everything you need to know about your client, from their contact details, to the current WIP, history of bills, to the production of accounts and tax returns can be accessed from a single application. This eliminates the need to log into various separate software, flicking between screens or copy and pasting details from one system to another.
Automate routine processes through workflows
Workflows guide staff through their daily tasks. These can be triggered by an event – such as setting up a new client – or by the completion of another workflow, leaving partners and managers free to focus on managing end-to-end client relationships.
Simple to use but powerful report generator
The CCH Reporting tool allows you to uncover the answers you need to find from within your practice data. The reports can contain data from thousands of fields across all products within the CCH Central suite.
You can also mix data from different products, for example Client turnover from CCH Accounts Production vs fee income from CCH Practice Management.
An easy to follow wizard guides your though creating your reports which can be saved, exported or shared with colleagues as you wish. CCH Reporting also contains filters, pivot tables or calculated columns to help you understand and view your data the best way possible.
Personalise workspaces across your departments
CCH Central allows everyone to get the information they need presented in a format that works best for them. For example, partners or managers can create dashboards giving them a snapshot view on a variety of metrics across the practice including upcoming task and appointments, tax return volumes, WIP or debt recoverability.
“The amount of useful information you can extract from the software is almost limitless. With our old system I was always thinking ‘Will I be able to get hold of this information?’; with CCH Central, I know I can. Changing software suppliers after such a long time can be a painful process but things are so much better now, so I’ve no regrets. In fact, I’d say it’s the best business decision I have made.”
