Advertising Review: 4 Ways to get the Most From Your-Reports

4 Ways to get the Most From Your Reports

Reports show trends on how well your firm did in the past, as well as what’s coming down the pike. These are key factors that drive success for the firm. Information provided by reports is especially important in today’s compliance environment, where it’s critical to be proactive instead of reactive.

To make the most of RegEd’s Advertising Review reporting capabilities, follow these proven steps to improve your process.

1. Determine what's important to your firm

Executives consider reporting vital to find answers to questions regarding their business.

Start by asking questions at the top. When prototyping your reports, it’s important to first define what executives (especially your CCO and CEO) want to see. Are they concerned about turnaround time or just general data regarding the advertising review compliance process? What are their key metrics? What behaviors do they want to encourage or discourage?

Align with your team’s vision. Take your business goals and map those metrics to the capabilities of Advertising Review reports. For example, if the firm wants to know how long a certain item takes to be reviewed, pull the turnaround time report. Or use the Search All Requests tool to create custom reports based on a variety of metrics – including timeframes, standard metadata fields, FINRA-specific fields, and custom metadata fields.

2. Capture the right data

Your reports are only as good as the data behind them. Planning and setup are the keys to capturing the right metrics. The RegEd implementation process takes data in to consideration during the workflow creation process, but sometimes years have passed since a firm has reviewed their setup. If you’re just about to start an implementation, be sure to look at your custom fields and configurations to see if it will provide the reports you want. If your workflow is well established, it may be a good time to audit your process to find ways to optimize. In either event, we suggest working backwards – plan your reports first and then configure the application accordingly.

Keep your scope focused and only measure what matters. Pick a limited number of key performance indicators and metrics. A third-party survey of the number of metrics used by CEO’s showed that over half use only 5–10 metrics to manage their entire firm. It is also a good idea to limit the number of reports. Focus on those tied to specific business objectives.

3. Create your reports

Most firms start with existing reports from previous applications or processes as a baseline. As you begin to build workflows, and subsequently your reports in Advertising Review, there are several resources to help you get started.

Begin with standard reports. Advertising Review offers standard reports across all versions. See the following standard the filtering options. Note that not all reports have the same filtering options.

  • Completion Date: Allows for filtering based on date values (YTD, Last 12 months, etc.). Use this to target important data.
  • Grouping Options: How should reports be grouped? This filter will be report-specific and could include status, originator, branch, and/or format.
  • Rep Attributes: Filter by up to four (4) different rep attributes such as title, position, or hire date (as well as many more).

Next take a look at the Search All Requests reports tool. This allows you to create ad hoc reports using over 25 standard metrics as well as any custom metadata fields in your workflows. Configure, save, export, and repeat as often as needed. Don't reinvent the wheel! Talk with your Relationship Manager to see what other firms have implemented and learn more about best practices so that you and your team are working with data that helps you make more informed decisions.

4. Use data to drive behavior and produce results

Reports are designed to be iterative, it’s important to keep them current and relevant. To successfully roll out business metrics, good communication is key. Use the My Reports feature to easily find your favorite reports.

Manage from the top down. Encourage managers to run meetings directly from their reports. Many customers also have the following mandate for compliance and marketing: “If it’s not in Ad Review, then it doesn’t exist.” This directive proves to be extremely motivating for teams.

Finally, engage your user community. Don’t make the mistake of tracking metrics only at the executive level, make sure your users can access the reports that are important to them. What do your users want to see? What will help them do their jobs faster and smarter? Those are the metrics that matter.

Mr. Schobel will speak as part of the panel, Innovation & Automation to Increase Service Levels & Profit Margins, which is scheduled for Tuesday, September 25 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. “Leveraging new technology, the compliance and operations functions can evolve to deliver new levels of value creation and competitive advantage. Technologies such as Robotic Process Automation and AI automate repetitive, routine and manual tasks, enabling compliance resources to undertake higher value activities and increase the quality of their contribution to the business. I look forward to discussing this topic with my fellow panelists,” he stated.

The session will address ways that companies are using these new technologies to simplify business submissions, improve service levels, reduce NIGOs (not in good order) and increase profit margins. The session will also explore how companies can support the transition to new technologies and implement best practices for creating an optimized customer experience.

Efficiencies with Advertising Review’s Two-Way FINRA Integration

Efficiencies with Advertising Review's Two-Way FINRA Integration

Firms filing their advertisements with FINRA know how time consuming and cumbersome the process can be. Not only does the firm need to review collateral based on internal processes, but they also need to organize and send firm-approved files to FINRA based on FINRA 2210. FINRA offers two ways to initiate the review process – either manually through their web portal, or by integrating with its Advertising Review Electronic Files (AREF) system.

Since AREF was introduced with RegEd’s Advertising Review solution in 2010, firms had the ability to automate the sending process. As of the spring 2018 release, firms can now take advantage of full automation with our two-way integration – send and receive FINRA results, and automatically WORM content (for firms that have RegEd WORM enabled on their workflows). The enhancement provides a holistic solution for end-to-end FINRA filing support. See the following three most exciting features included with Advertising Review’s AREF integration.

Two-Way Integration

Use the built-in AREF integration to send content to FINRA and receive notifications when the status and letter are returned. We’ve done away with waiting or having to manually check FINRA’s portal to see if a decision was made. Advertising Review’s AREF integration takes care of that for you. Not only does it automatically WORM the content (when enabled), it retrieves the status and letter when a decision is made, and notifies the applicable user(s) by email.

FINRA AREF 1

Effortlessly Manage Multiple Filings per Submission

What happens if a file is returned with a status other than ‘OK’ or ‘LIMITED’? How can you track the progress of updating the collateral and resubmitting to FINRA? That’s easy with Advertising Review’s history log. Directly in the submissions, users can view the snapshot of FINRA correspondence. Then with a few clicks, users can dive deeper to view individual filings, fee estimates, current status, and more.

FINRA AREF 2

Actionable & Accurate Reporting

Due to FINRA’s 2210 requirements, it is important that firms adhere to the rule to avoid being penalized. One way RegEd’s Advertising Review solution makes this easier is with the dedicated FINRA report. In addition to metadata directly related to FINRA filings, the export includes result details, status information (including applicable dates), fee amounts, as well as any Additional Documentation notes included with the submission. The report provides firms the power and flexibility to mitigate or eliminate gaps in their FINRA filing process.

The Future of Customer Communications Compliance

The Future of Customer Communications Compliance

We had a blast during the 2018 Advertising Review Client Advisory Board (CAB) meeting! A dozen of our clients and RegEd employees teamed up to review what’s coming down the pike for RegEd’s Advertising Review solution and the industry. During our nearly two-hour meeting, we discussed product features, played innovation games, and explored what the future of the industry could look like. See below for the top takeaways from this year’s session.

Third-Party Integrations

Over the past few years it has become more important than ever to have a fully holistic up- and down-stream review process. This includes connections with Marketing teams, Legal, and Subject Matter Experts (SME). Advertising Review has supported end-to-end compliance since its inception nearly 15 years ago – including integration with internal marketing and legal processes. However, firms are beginning to use a multitude of different software packages within the organization to satisfy siloed needs.

In 2016 Advertising Review started to bridge this gap when it released API web service integrations to allow different software to effortlessly communicate with Advertising Review. Several clients took advantage of this benefit by integrating internal systems, but we continued to receive requests to have turn-key connections with the most popular platforms used by other business groups in their organizations.

We were happy to announce during the CAB that we are indeed working throughout 2018 and 2019 to create “connectors” with other popular software products. Though we are not able to discuss details publicly at this time, please reach out to your Relationship Manager to provide feedback and suggested platforms to integrate with. If it is one we are currently working with, we will be sure to incorporate your ideas and recommendations.

Updated Reporting Metrics

It was clear that firms are consuming more and more data to help make better decisions throughout the compliance lifecycle. In doing so, it is vital that firms have access to reports to make their jobs more efficient. Advertising Review has always had actionable standard reports, and added the Search All Requests ad-hoc reporting tool in 2015.

The CAB members were given an opportunity to highlight other features they would like to see added to report functionality. In general, users would like to see additional filter metrics within the Search All Requests tool – mostly around attributes. CAB members went on to explain that using Rep Attributes that are fed into the RegEd system will help further refine their reports, such as submitter parameters like organizational status or individual distinctions.

The Advertising Review team is currently reviewing the specifications for an upcoming release. If you have any other report-specific suggestions, please reach out to your Relationship Manager.

Artificial Regulatory Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a buzz word that continues to float around the regulatory industry. Many have a hard time categorizing or articulating what it is and how it should intersect with the compliance industry. Without going into too much detail, it is important to have a general understanding of the concepts. There are essentially two types of AI: Narrow and General. Narrow is what most of us are aware of – Siri, Alexa, Spotify, Amazon Shopping suggestions, etc., – which are really good at one or two processes. While General AI is the belief that machines can function like a human brain and is very good at a multitude of actions, including learning.

After understanding the general definition of AI, most in the industry agree that Narrow AI is what will help streamline firm operations. The Advertising Review team is targeting a future release of an initial Artificial (Narrow) Intelligence feature. If you would like to collaborate on the process, please reach out to your Relationship Manager.

Excitement for 2018

Most of what is covered during CAB meetings are long-term goals, however, we also discussed what is coming in 2018. We have several exciting features including three large enhancements this year:

AREF 2.0: Two-way integration with FINRA’s AREF system. Letters and statuses are automatically ported back in to Advertising Review.

Expiration Extension: Ability to extend the life of a review item without having to copy, clone, or resubmit a submission.

All-New User Interface: Completely redesigned the user interface to improve the user experience by reducing number of clicks and creating a fully-responsive application on desktops, tablets, and mobile devices.

We’re excited about the future of Advertising Review and appreciate our client’s commitment to partner with us today and in the future. For more information, please continue to subscribe to our Did You Know emails and check for upcoming webinars and whitepapers.

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 Hosts NAIC Market Regulation Update and Market Conduct Exam Best Practices Webinar for Compliance Legal and Risk Management Professionals in the Insurance Industry

RegEd Hosts NAIC Market Regulation Update and Market Conduct Exam Best Practices Webinar for Compliance, Legal and Risk Management Professionals in the Insurance Industry

RegEd, the leading provider of compliance and risk management technology to the insurance and financial services industries, presented the webinar, "NAIC Market Regulation Update and Market Conduct Exam Best Practices" on October 26, 2017. The session featured Randy A. Helder, Assistant Director of Market Regulation, National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), and RegEd regulatory and technology subject matter experts. Attendees included executives and senior managers from Compliance, Legal and Risk Management across the insurance industry.

The webinar provided attendees with insight into select NAIC working groups, including the Market Conduct Examination Standards Working Group and the evolution of the Market Regulation Handbook. The discussion included the Market Actions Working Group and their review and analysis of market regulation issues of national impact. In addition, the webinar focused on the Market Conduct Annual Statement (MCAS) as a catalyst for market conduct examinations. Merlinda Johnson, Director of Insurance Regulatory Compliance at RegEd, stated, "We were happy to host this webinar. Attendees benefitted from Mr. Helder’s insight surrounding NAIC market regulation objectives and priorities.” Johnson continued, “It is imperative that the insurance industry continuously engage with the regulators and remain current on evolving market conduct best practices. By doing so, companies can mitigate the risk of being subject to increased market conduct investigations and examinations.”

Mark Pfeifer, CODE Enterprise Solutions Product Strategy and Business Development leader at RegEd commented, "consumer and regulator expectations, as well as their use of technology, are outpacing the technology insurers use for market conduct exams. Firms need to at least be thinking about for-purpose exam technology; something that puts them in a ready posture before an exam starts, and ideally helps them avoid an exam."
