RegEd Announces Innovations in Branch Audit-Management Capabilities as Part of Enterprise Compliance-Platform

RegEd Announces Innovations in Branch Audit Management Capabilities as Part of Enterprise Compliance Platform

Increased automation, improved data management and simplified user experience streamline the end-to-end process of planning, conducting and resolving branch audits

RegEd, the leading provider of Compliance Management, Licensing and Registration, and Education solutions to the financial services industry, has announced the rollout of an upgraded version of its industry-leading Enterprise Branch Audit Management. The release is the result of significant investment and ongoing technology innovation to enable greater levels of automation and improved data accuracy in firms’ branch audit and inspections programs.

Branch Audit Management 4.0 incorporates more than three years of market input gained through continuous collaboration with more than 20 leading firms. Through this process RegEd identified growing needs among firms to consolidate multiple systems used to manage branch audits, to more efficiently and accurately manage audit data, and to effectively identify, mitigate and resolve audit deficiencies in a timely manner. In response RegEd has delivered the capability to view and manage audits from a single comprehensive system, introduced audit data pre-population capabilities to streamline data management, and enhanced its audit response system to enable firms to more efficiently close the loop on audits and deficiencies.

Increased automation and improved efficiency throughout the audit lifecycle have resulted in significantly streamlined audit management for RegEd’s clients. Adam Schaub, AVP & Chief Compliance Officer at 1st Global stated, “Our audit close-out letter goal is 30 days post inspection. After implementing RegEd’s Branch Audit Management solution, the first close-out letter was sent on the first day, and subsequent close-out letters also showed marked improvement in the inspection cycle.”

Branch Audit Management 4.0 also offers expanded offline audit capability, automatic identification of repeat deficiencies, simultaneous auditor access, an updated task dashboard, multi-level workflows and more. In addition to enabling firms to maintain compliance with regulations such as FINRA 3110 and 3120, Branch Audit Management greatly reduces manual tasks for individual auditors. For example, automated pre-population of data from other sources, such as client databases and questionnaires, materially reduces time spent manually referencing other systems, increasing audit capacity per auditor and improving data accuracy.

Enterprise Branch Audit Management is part of the RegEd enterprise compliance platform, which enables data sharing across modules and a clear view of the status of compliance obligations, including branch audits, at the company or individual level. Enterprise Branch Audit Management is now available for current and prospective users.  To request a demonstration or further information, visit www.reged.com

RegEd Announces Regulatory Exam Management Capabilities for CODE Enterprise Platform

RegEd Announces Regulatory Exam Management Capabilities for CODE Enterprise Platform

RegEd, a leading provider of compliance technology solutions for the financial services industry, has announced the expansion of the Comply On Demand Enterprise (CODE®) platform to address the multitude of requirements associated with undergoing regulatory exams. Regulatory Exam Management leverages CODE’s enterprise workflow, task management, document management and reporting capabilities to enable firms to drive efficiency throughout the end-to-end exam process.

 “Undergoing regulatory examinations can be costly and time-consuming for financial services firms. With the pace of regulatory change accelerating, the increasing frequency and broadening scope of exams represent significant risk and a drain on resources for firms that fail to manage the process effectively,” commented Debra Freitag, Chief Strategy Officer at RegEd. “With CODE, firms can embed a streamlined, repeatable methodology for managing exams, from pre-exam preparation to fulfillment of post-exam remediation requirements.”

Regulatory Exam Management installs best practices and drives efficiency across all exam management processes, enabling firms to significantly reduce the time and resource commitment required during a regulatory exam. The solution delivers a highly configurable, workflow-enabled framework that facilitates management of data requests, examiner communication, remediation and other key elements of the exam lifecycle. CODE enables exam managers to centrally coordinate exam activities across the organization and provides a full audit trail of the firm’s remediation actions.

CODE enterprise platform capabilities provide robust workflow and task management, while integrated regulatory intelligence delivers actionable, relevant compliance requirements. The combination enables financial services firms to efficiently identify, track and fulfill compliance obligations, dramatically reducing the risk of non-compliance and related consequences.  Other CODE modules include Market Conduct Exam Management, Regulatory Change Management, Policies and Procedures Management, Consumer Complaint Management and Incident Management. CODE is fully configurable, scalable and extendable to enable companies to cost-effectively build on the initial investment as their needs expand and evolve.

RegEd Revolutionizes Producer and Adjuster Licensing Maintenance with Fully Automated Credentialing Data Management Solution

RegEd Revolutionizes Producer and Adjuster Licensing Maintenance with Fully Automated Credentialing Data Management Solution

RegEd, the leading provider of Licensing and Registration technology solutions to the financial services industry, today announced that it has launched Alerts 2.0, a module of its Xchange Enterprise Licensing and Registration solution. Alerts 2.0, through integration with the NIPR Producer Database (“PDB”), will significantly expand the range of data for which firms can receive automated change notifications and systematized, timely reconciliation of changes with the firm’s back-end database.

“Maintaining accurate, up-to-date individual and agency information can quickly become overwhelming for insurers and distributors. With the sheer volume of daily updates, it’s impossible to maintain current records across the firm’s population using a manual process. At the same time, as regulator focus on this process intensifies, inaccurate information can lead to significant consequences,” commented Jacob Spitzley, Senior Product Manager at RegEd. He continued, “Automated monitoring and data reconciliation offer firms a significant reduction in the time and resources required to manually check the PDB for relevant changes, and instill confidence that the firm’s records are consistently synchronized with the official filing office record.”

Using Alerts 2.0 insurers and distributors can automatically identify changes, and then reconcile and synchronize those changes with the firm’s back-end database.

Dani Fields-Damato, Vice President, Marsh USA Inc., which beta tested the solution, commented, “RegEd Alerts 2.0 will increase efficiency and reduce our spending on PDB reports. The service notifies us of data changes as they occur on the PDB, and allows our licensing team to review and sync the data with the touch of a button. The saved PDB reports, audit history, and data comparison features make this functionality a must-have.”

For carriers, Alerts 2.0 will automatically update licensing data without the need to rely on individuals or distributors for updates. Distributors will benefit from automatic notifications on appointments. In the event that producers are appointed by carriers that are not approved or do not have sell agreements, Xchange will notify the distributors immediately, enabling them to take corrective action.

RegEd will host invitation-only webinars in June to demonstrate the unique, innovative capabilities of Alerts 2.0. For webinar information please contact sales@reged.com.
