FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cincinnati, OH (March 19, 2019) - CCO Tech announces the release of its Document Manager, the third module of an integrated web-based compliance system for small- and mid-sized registered investment advisers (RIAs). Document Manager integrates with CCO Tech’s SEC Filing Manager and Compliance Calendar to form a comprehensive solution that helps RIAs manage their compliance processes and documentation.
Many Chief Compliance Officers (CCOs) at small- to mid-sized RIAs rely on manual processes or outdated tools to complete their regulatory filings. CCO Tech was founded to simplify, automate, and ultimately enhance the CCO’s ability to properly and cost-effectively manage the compliance process and reduce regulatory risk.
According to CCO Tech founder, Bo Howell, “Document Manager is our most significant platform enhancement to date. It is tightly integrated with our other two modules yet also serves as the basis for additional applications in development, including a policies and task manager, risk assessment tool, and annual report manager. We’ve built a flexible platform that allows users to create content based on our template or to upload their current content. We are also building the ability to cross-check data between SEC filings and other compliance documentation."
Howell notes that the completion of the Document Manager will allow CCO Tech to develop further enhancements to the Compliance Calendar and add more content to the SEC Filing Manager. He further noted that the dashboard has been revised to incorporate information housed in the Document Manager.
Document Manager makes documenting an SEC compliance program easier by:
Automatically saving draft and final versions of SEC filings into specified folders
Allowing users to upload or create policies and procedures, checklists, and other compliance documents directly into the system without needing to use a third-party document platform
Using data from SEC filings and other sources to identify the types of documents needed
Integrating those documents into the Compliance Calendar to schedule recurring and ad hoc compliance tasks
Automatically saving documents produced by compliance tasks to the designated folder
Automatically scheduling important tasks and reminders
Creating organized structures for completing documentation relating to vendor management and employee registration.
Peter Burford, Director of IT at CCO Tech, notes that Document Manager will be an essential component to the development of CCO Tech’s next two applications. “We’re now developing a task management system to more efficiently handle key document-related activities such as signing and approval, as well as a compliance policies and procedures manual,” says Burford. “These components are all being designed to work together seamlessly. There are a lot of complex interactions happening behind the scenes, but we’re working to keep everything easy and intuitive for our users.”
