Collecto: Your interactive checklist – Structured collection, replacing and sorting

Collecto is one of the central building blocks of 5FSoftware’s Collaboration Platform architecture. The name says it all: Collecting documents for specific projects and work processes.

For tax consulting or auditing work flows, the Collecto is a tool that greatly simplifies the collection of documents as well as documentation of receipt.

Your clients transfer all required documents to a predefined folder in the system. They will be sorted according to the user’s defined structure. Time and cost-saving. This eliminates the time-consuming search for documents in email mailboxes.

The receipt and processing status of documents can be viewed by all participants of the process at any time.

Collecto assists with the collection of:

Income tax documents
Documents for consolidated financial statements
Documents on the formation of limited liability companies
Documents for the preparation of annual financial statements
Due diligence documents
Missing receipts

Intelligent process management in the office

With Collecto, 5FSoftware has developed a simple, time-saving process for document collection. For each collection process, users can create a virtual and flexibly designed checklist of the required documents, including status overview, priorities, due dates, additional information and connected task management.

Templates can also be created and used across the entire office. This offers the benefit of streamlined processes in the office while giving plenty of flexibility to customize on a case-by-case basis.

In addition to the structured collection of files, Collecto offers communication and process structuring within in the system. From the simple comment function to the forwarding of requests to an external team member, the broad spectrum of Collecto’s functionality enables your office to bring cooperation to the next level.

Data collection and sharing in the cloud

Clients provide documents via a simple upload process. This makes it easy to file the documents required by each item in the cloud – and they will be pre-sorted. Have you forgotten one item on the list? No problem, Collecto is flexible – lists can be revised, expanded or reordered at any time. And in case of queries, the comment function within the software offers easy and flexible communication, whether internally or with clients.

An audit trail can also be downloaded for the file.
