What customers are saying SEE ALL

We transitioned 80 clients to the new online process with SmartVault this past tax season. It was very successful; the entire tax prep process was so much more efficient.

I’m able to collaborate with clients so much more efficiently. I now share tax returns with 80% of my clients through SmartVault.

I use SmartVault’s client portal to offer my clients access
to current and historical documents. There are many
occasions where clients need to get their hands on past
documentation; SmartVault allows me to store historical
client data for years back.
