Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting recently held its 2018 iLab Code Games, a two-day, international competition where professionals bring their innovative ideas to fruition.

Started in 2014, the event has grown to feature over 700 staff members this year competing in more than 20 cities around the world. After 48 hours, teams present their work to a panel of judges consisting of executives, customers and industry thought-leaders, with finalists being chosen in the following categories: Best Use of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning; Best Internal Process Improvement; and Innovation Most Impactful to Customer. Winners from each participating city will go on to the "Champion of Champions" at the end of June for a chance to advance their ideas to the Tax & Accounting iLab for deeper research and development.

“Our employees must feel empowered to quickly make vital decisions at any given moment, to ensure we help customers when it matters most,” said Karen Abramson, CEO of Wolters Kluwer, in a statement. “The Code Games create an environment where employees are encouraged to collaborate and compete, which helps drive an agile culture. This event is also fun, smart and encouraging!”

Previous winning entries from the Tax and Accounting Division include CCH iQ, a predictive intelligence tool that brings alerts clients to important tax and accounting events, as well as Addison OneClick, a tool for the German tax advisory market that tackles digitization challenges and increases productivity for customers.
