SmartVault unveiled the latest version of its online document management service for QuickBooks. The new release is designed for accountants who provide client bookkeeping. It integrates document management into the client bookkeeping workflow.

The new system enables accounting professionals to manage multiple clients from a single interface and receive a single bill for all clients, with volume discounts up to 20 percent. Users can organize all of their paper and client correspondence with the system, including documents, reports, e-mails, notes and photos. Documents are available from within QuickBooks and can be accessed at any time using a Web browser.

Accountants can also set up an inbox to give administrative staff and clients who don't use QuickBooks the ability to scan and upload documents.

Client vaults can be set up for $19 a month. SmartVault provides a single client user with access to QuickBooks and the portal. It also offers unlimited inbox-only users, and storage for up to 1,000 documents.
