Digital regulatory compliance solutions play a big role in achieving that compliance. Documents are always available to authorized viewers. Built-in reminders signal the need for review and update. Individual, groups and even groups within groups are set to ensure an accurate connection between policies and the people they govern.
The legal department itself can benefit directly by improved management of legal documents and tasks. Archive contracts and contract provisions, including future action such as renewal fees and exercise of contractual offerings. Compile, update, and submit information required for reports to the SEC and other agencies. Compile policies and related documents for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and distribute to affected employees. Coordinate annual report activities including compilation and authoring performed by multiple contributors and subject matter experts. Assemble content required for litigation and arbitration.
