Dole Adopts Collaborative Data Collection Process

Dole Food Company Company Inc., the largest producer and marketer of high-quality fresh fruit and fresh vegetables in the world, has a decentralized, eight-person corporate tax department that focuses primarily on income tax compliance.

"We prepare pro forma 1120 returns for our consolidated federal income tax return for 70 U.S. companies and have over 200 controlled foreign corporations that require 5471 filings," states Gary Osinski, Tax Compliance Director at Dole. "We also provide tax support for approximately 10 partnerships."

Without an automated system, tax data collection was no small task. For years, it had been handled using a manual process that was becoming increasingly time-consuming and error-prone as the company grew in size and complexity.

To address these inefficiencies, Dole decided to implement an automated data collection, archiving, and reporting solution.

After evaluating various solutions, Dole chose to implement an integrated suite of compliance, data, and workflow management tools.
