programmable keyboard for tax accountants

Schuster & Walther – Raising productivity with a custom solution for tax accountants

The Challenge

In Germany tax accountants, financial auditors, lawyers, and enterprises often use software solutions and IT services from the market leader DATEV eG, for preparation of the annual accounts, fixed asset accounting, tax declaration, on-going financial accounting, or internal office organisation.

Recurring activities waste employees’ valuable working time and reduce productivity. It doesn’t have to be this way.

The Solution

In cooperation with the data entry experts PrehKeyTec, Schuster & Walther IT-Kanzlei GmbH has adapted the programmable keyboards MCI 3100 and MCI 60 to the core products of software company DATEV eG. In addition to the special function keys, the premium keyboard MCI 3100 offers a regular alpha area, F-keys, a numeric block and arrow keys.



"A single key click replaces the complex navigation by mouse or the three-finger salute, and instantaneously opens the requested application."
