“Keeping our clients working within their comfort zone, specifically within Microsoft Word® and Excel®, is an important element for accounting and XBRL review accuracy,” said Liam Power, President at Vintage.

“Certent’s SaaS environment has always focused on ease-of-use by allowing financial reporting departments to remain within their familiar workplace standard of Microsoft Office. This integration reduces filing stress for many of our clients that have multi-layered review and comment workflow procedures. We’re pleased to continue offering our clients Certent as the next evolutionary Disclosure Management step in our fleXBRL program,” concluded Power.

Next generation Disclosure Management highlights include:

  • New User Experience– An enhanced client experience with streamlined workflow and an intuitive, modern, and customizable user interface. Clients will benefit from increased visibility and greater process tracking capabilities.
  • Financial Connectors– A direct connection to NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle, SAP, and other major ERP, CPM, and consolidation systems to help clients ensure data accuracy and automate the flow of information.
  • Integration with Microsoft® Cloud– The continuing migration to a cloud-based Microsoft Word and Excel environment maximizes workflow efficiency and creates one seamless online version of the truth. This evolution heightens collaboration and simplifies the review and approval process within familiar Microsoft® tools.
  • Support for Inline XBRL– The seamless integration of one-click Inline XBRL report generation ensures regulatory compliance with expected forthcoming SEC requirements.
  • Disclosure Research– An intuitive solution that provides efficient access to public disclosures and helps locate actionable information to perform comparisons with ease and establish best practices. In addition to qualitative research, Disclosure Research now allows for quantitative benchmarking and trend analysis for customized peer groups.
  • Investor Reporting– This platform for private companies streamlines and simplifies investor, management, and board reporting. Certent’s Investor Reporting solution facilitates cross-department collaboration on Word and PowerPoint® documents including defined roles for security and a transparent audit trail.

“Certent next generation Disclosure Management offerings streamline the SEC reporting process, improve productivity, and strengthen controls and compliance by enabling companies to create, compare, and communicate all crucial aspects of business reporting with deep Microsoft Office integration and cloud-based technologies,” said Michael Madigan, senior vice president of product management and strategy for Certent. “It fits perfectly into Vintage’s innovative fleXBRL program.”
