Thomson Reuters has released mobile versions of Thomson Reuters Checkpoint, the online service that provides research, news, analysis and productivity tools to tax, accounting, trade and finance professionals, for smartphones and tablets.

Checkpoint has been optimized to reduce navigation clicks, display screens in an easy-to-read manner, and enable anytime-anywhere access on Apple’s iPad and smartphones such as iPhone and Google’s Android.

“Optimizing Checkpoint for mobile devices is a critical step in our efforts to deliver essential content to our customers at any point in their day,” said Steve Mendelsohn, managing director in the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters.

Checkpoint users can now access information and analysis from trusted Thomson Reuters brands such as PPC, RIA, WG&L, and EBIA and use many Checkpoint productivity tools on their mobile devices.

“More and more of our customers are mobile during their workdays. They might need to keep up with the latest news, look up an important tax law change while in a meeting, or forward critical analysis to a colleague back at the office. Checkpoint lets them quickly find the answers they need and stay productive throughout the day, wherever they are,” said Mendelsohn.

Mobile versions do not require downloading of an app. They automatically detect where the user logs in from and deliver the phone or tablet user interface accordingly.

Features for tablet users include drop-down menus to navigate Checkpoint and icons to navigate within documents. Other features include document preview windows, and an easy-to-read display that is available by rotating the device from portrait to landscape.

Highlights for smartphone users include the ability to search by citation, table of contents, or a WG&L dictionary of tax terms. Smartphone users also have the ability to keep current with the latest news articles, and the ability to view folders, save documents to folders, and flag, email and make notes to documents.
