CPA computer use survey available.

A survey of CPAs' use of computers and software is available free from the American Institute of CPAs.

Conducted late in 1990, the survey tallied information such as the brands of software and hardware members use and whether they would recommend it to others.

The functions covered in the software survey include accounting, tax preparation and planning, personal financial planning, client write-up, time and billing, staff scheduling, audit workpapers, fixed assets, financial modeling, database and file management, graphics and word processing.

The survey also analyzes the types of computers and printers CPAs use, both by brand name and generic type.

To receive the study, write to Survey Results, Information Technology Division, AICPA, 1211 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York 10036.
