UX Design Review: What SurePrep, Part of Thomson Reuters Said About UXDA


UX Design Review: What SurePrep, Part of Thomson Reuters Said About UXDA

We are honored to enhance the user experience for a next-gen product for the tax automation software and services leader SurePrep, part of Thomson Reuters, USA. Thanks to the independent review platform Clutch, you can find out how this cooperation went from the interview with Tal Bjoraker, the Lead UX/UI Designer of SurePrep based in Irvine, California.

SurePrep's service consists of several tax automation software systems, and our aim was to remove friction and unify the fragmented user experience to make it intuitive and seamless. These are some of the most complex systems we have encountered that serve multiple daily tax automation scenarios.

This product diverges significantly from the usual banking or financial applications that the UXDA team designs daily. However, when our team saw the complexity and sophistication of this product, this challenge inspired us.

When we met with the client, we realized what great people are behind this product and the significance of their mission. We are proud of this cooperation that has been ongoing for several years.

SurePrep mission is to build tax technology solutions that transform the tax and accounting industry and improve the lives of tax professionals, taxpayers, and SurePrep team members.
