(27 April 2017) – Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting today announced its solution, CCH iQ, has been named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Innovation in Technology Development - Services Industries category in the fourth annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.

The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the only business awards program to recognise innovation in the workplace in all 22 nations of the Asia-Pacific region.  The Stevie Awards are widely considered to be the world's premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in programs such as The International Business Awards for fifteen years.

“We are very pleased that this program continues to grow in entries and prestige,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.  “The judges were very impressed with the stories of achievement submitted by organisations throughout the region.  We extend our warmest congratulations to all of this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners.”

This inaugural win in the Asia Pacific Stevie® Awards follows the company’s successful recognition by the International Business Awards held in the United States. Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting has previously won Bronze Stevie® Awards in 2016 for its CCH Code Connect and CCH iFirm solutions, as well as a Silver Stevie® Award for New Product of the Year for its CCH IntelliConnect solution in 2015.
