Wolters Kluwer, a leading multinational publisher and information services company, announced today that CCH Tax and Accounting, a leading provider of tax, audit and accounting information, software and services, has adopted a new brand identity that more closely aligns the business within the overall Wolters Kluwer organization.
During her keynote speech today at the CCH Tax and Accounting Users Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, Nancy McKinstry, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Wolters Kluwer, revealed the new brand to around 400 key CCH customers stating: "This new identity for CCH reflects the next generation of CCH's leading tax and accounting solutions. With our best-in-class products and best-of-breed solutions, we will continue to invest in new product development, acquisitions, partnerships and ongoing strengthening of our expertise so that we can help drive growth for your organizations."
Effective today, the group's name will change from CCH Tax and Accounting to CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business. The new brand identity will appear along with the CCH and ProSystem fx product names in the United States, and also across the Wolters Kluwer tax businesses in Canada and Asia Pacific.
"It's the best of both worlds and a logical progression for our organization," said CCH President and CEO Kevin Robert. "By keeping the CCH name and also aligning ourselves more closely with Wolters Kluwer, we're keeping the trusted CCH name prominent, while at the same time signifying a greater level of investment and depth and breadth of resources that come from being part of a global corporation. Customers can expect CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business to leverage greater content, technology, resources and funding to deliver best-of-breed integrated workflow solutions to make them even more successful."
