CCH Smart Reports allow you to very quickly generate standard reports for your practice. You need to select a report from the saved reports and run it. Prior to previewing the report you may be prompted to specify filters. For example, to specify Partner name so as to restrict the report to just one partner’s clients.
Features and Benefits
