Raleigh, NC, Oct. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RegEd, the leading provider of enterprise compliance technology solutions to the financial services industry, announced a series of enhancements to its compliance platform and solutions portfolio that enable new levels of operational efficiency and reduce the risk of non-compliance. 

The release includes the addition of Online Annotations to RegEd's Advertising Review enterprise solution. Advertising Review fully automates the customer communications submission, review and approval process, enabling firms to seamlessly comply with communications rules, such as FINRA Rule 2210, and other customer communications regulations.  The Online Annotations enhancement enables reviewers to provide timely, consolidated feedback to submitters, speeding client and prospect communications to market, ensuring compliance and maintaining rep satisfaction. 

A set of unified publishing tools were introduced for RegEd's Social Media Archiving and Surveillancesolution. The enhancement expands the scheduling capabilities and enables users to post a single content item across multiple social media platforms (eg. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) and release it immediately or at a predetermined time in the future. Also included in this release is the ability to archive Google+ Business Pages, which is critical to meeting regulatory requirements when leveraging Google+ for business communications.

A number of new capabilities were also released for RegEd's market-leading Audit Management solution including Repeat Deficiency Identification which enables users to link year over year deficiencies with the last audit date identified using a unique deficiency code.

RegEd released a number of new capabilities for its Outside Business Activities (OBA) solution including OBA Reconciliation.  The enhancement enables users to certify that they are not involved in any outside business activities without the need to complete an associated questionnaire. It also includes rules-based logic that precludes a user from affirmatively attesting to no outside business activities if they currently have an activity on file.

"We're excited about this release," stated Steve Slaton, RegEd's EVP Product Management "it's the culmination of our work across multiple application-specific client advisory boards and delivers important capabilities that will enable our clients to efficiently meet evolving compliance and operational challenges".  Slaton continued "This release delivers tremendous efficiencies that streamline the process of compliance, especially for firms that have multiple RegEd applications implemented on our Enterprise Compliance Platform".    

Implemented in hundreds of firms across the nation, RegEd's Enterprise Compliance Platform automates compliance processes required for FINRA compliance, producer / advisor licensing and registration, regulatory change management and insurance company compliance.
