What is iECM for Accounting Firm?

iECM is document management system designed specifically for accounting and tax professionals. We have served the profession since 2009. Our software development is driven by feedback from accounting and tax professionals and accounting channel thought-leaders.

iECM provides software consisting of multiple modules to handle all of your document management needs. We charge a flat-fee based on the number of users in your firm.

The Doc.It team educates practitioners about Doc.It Suite by relating how Doc.It Suite works in a firm to the 4-step process in a document’s lifecycle, Gather, Process, Store, and Deliver. Our software addresses document management and workflow for each of these steps in a document’s lifecycle.

iECM includes many modules to help with document management throughout a document’s lifecycle. Some customers choose to use all of the modules; some choose to use only a few. based on how many or how few modules you use.

A common reason why practitioners choose iECM is because they are using many different solutions (tax, bookkeeping, audit, payroll, etc.) and iECM is the one unifying software that pulls all these disparate software programs together. iECM Suite makes it far more efficient to work more productively with the software you choose as the most preferred tax, bookkeeping, payroll, or other software.

Pricing for Small Accounting and Tax Firms

iECM Suite is priced based on a subscription model or on premise; you are charged a flat-fee based on the total number of users (subscribers) in your firm. It is quite common for accounting firms to add and remove licenses for seasonal staff or at any time.

iECM believes in earning your business, therefore we do not lock you into a long-term contract. We provide award-winning customer care; we believe we will continue to earn your business because of this. You can end your iECM subscription at any time and easily take your data with you.

Training & Implementation for Accounting Firms

Our experience working with firms with 1-10 employees has revealed the most effective and least cost-prohibitive method of training through the use of online group training classes. You experience training alongside an audience of your peers who most likely have a lot of the same questions and operating procedures as you have in your firm.

Training occurs for two- to three hours per week, for six consecutive weeks. The first few training sessions teach you about customizing iECM to work for your firm in the way you need it to work. It is this customization that makes the software most effective for your environment and users. The final training session includes a full day of staff training. iECM training shares best practices with document management and workflow to ensure your customized process is as efficient as possible.
