Tax Preparation Technology Solutions
Marathon's involvement in the commercial tax preparation
industry has been both extensive and effective. Marathon
consultants have provided thought leadership in many key areas
including online tax preparation services, store-front tax
preparation services, and Internet marketing.
Our support of the tax preparation industry has afforded us the
opportunity to provide a wide range of IT consulting services.
These have included such services as:
These services have been provided in both a staff augmentation
and Marathon managed services mode, depending upon the client
In the staff augmentation mode, Marathon consultants have been
able to blend into client-managed teams and supplement the skills
of the client team. This additional capacity allowed the client to
meet crucial deadlines, often imposed by the IRS or state
governments. When the projects are completed, the Marathon
consultants move on to other clients. This utilization of staff
augmentation to meet peak loads allows the client to meet crucial
business requirements without having to hire permanent staff.
The Marathon-managed mode, Marathon consultants work with senior
client management to define requirements and develop conceptual
solutions. This allows the client to leverage Marathon's
cross-industry technical skills to develop the optimum solution.
When the software development engagement is underway, Marathon
relies on its various IT methodologies to ensure client
requirements are met or exceeded.
