Brief Product Description and Pricing

SmartVault offers many of the features of a conventional document management system, but in a package with a substantially reduced learning curve, virtually no start-up costs and tight integration with QuickBooks. SmartVault’s integration with QuickBooks via a simple patent-pending toolbar interface is one of the most distinct competitive differentiators. SmartVault designed its document management solution specifically for QuickBooks, optimizing the integration. The usability of the toolbar creates a seamless user experience for scanning, attaching, and finding documents within a familiar application. SmartVault, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, requires no hardware to install; no need to configure server software and updates; and any new features are automatically provisioned to all users.

Client vaults can be set up for $19 a month and include a single client user with access to QuickBooks and the portal, unlimited Inbox-only users, and storage for up to 1,000 documents. Discounts of up to 20 percent are also offered for multiple client vaults. In addition, as clients’ needs grow, additional users can be added for $5 per month and additional storage can be purchased for as little as a half-cent per document, per month. Accounting professionals who sign up for a SmartVault account and become a SmartAdvisor can get a free vault to use for their own company file. During the month of May, SmartAdvisors get their first client vault free for three months. Because SmartVault is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, upgrades are available immediately for current customers with no change in monthly subscription fees and no additional costs.
