New York, NY (May 11, 2021) – Top 100 accounting, tax and advisory firm, Marks Paneth LLP, has been named one of 2021’s “Best Firms for Technology” by Accounting Today, a premier publication in the accounting sector. This prestigious list recognizes a select class of accounting firms that are embracing innovation and demonstrating a commitment to staying ahead of the curve. Ten firms were chosen for the recognition based on the evaluation of criteria such as technology and IT strategy, systems, hardware and software, and training and support.

Marks Paneth has instilled a tech-forward culture within the firm that focuses on innovation and education. Thanks to investments in technology that were initiated prior to the pandemic, the firm was well-positioned to smoothly transition to a remote work environment in March of 2020. Recently, the firm’s Information Technology (IT) Department, led by Chief Information Office Debbie Davidman, successfully implemented several new application platforms that enhance the client experience. They have also created customized tools to streamline internal workflows, thereby enabling professional staff to focus on delivering more value to clients. Understanding that all successful technology initiatives require a commitment to user training, the IT Department has held more than 400 individualized training sessions to ensure successful adoption of these new technologies. “We have witnessed a true partnership develop between our people and our technology,” says Davidman. “We are tremendously proud of our empowered user community and honored to receive this recognition of our success.”

Complementing the comprehensive IT and technology initiatives spearheaded by Davidman and her team, the professionals in Marks Paneth’s Technology Services Group are helping business leaders align technology with their business goals in order to drive transformation in the areas of finance, operations and business planning.
