SHELTON, Conn., Nov. 16 / -- An Executive Dashboard that provides officers and directors a personal view of their roles on various boards and committees throughout their organizations as well as a list of their signatory rights is one of the key enhancements in the latest release of the World Records(R) application, Version 6.1. The update, announced by Computershare's World Records division, is available this month.
The application is used by Corporate Secretary and General Counsel offices in hundreds of companies worldwide to efficiently manage corporate entity records and facilitate internal controls for subsidiary governance. In response to new legislation such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which calls for executive sign-off on critical reporting such as the company's financials, the Executive Dashboard offers senior management and directors a glimpse of their corporate accountability. It shows high-level charts of their organization's structures, data sheets with company information including a list of subsidiaries, and their signatory rights. In addition, the Dashboard has links to documents that are relevant to their responsibilities.
World Records 6.1 also includes a new 'pending' feature that allows local administrators to make changes into a centralized database that are held until reviewed and approved by authorized personnel. For international companies with multiple entities and system administrators around the world, the pending feature lets those closest to the data report on it in a timely manner, which may be critical for regional changes that need a quick response for legal or operational reasons. The feature ensures data security with an audit trail showing who made the changes.
Other new features include capabilities to prioritize sections and fields on screen to bring the most frequently used areas to the top, and an enhanced function to link documents (minutes, by-laws, contracts, etc.) that reside outside of the World Records system to the URL rather than having to upload them into the system.
"Using feedback from our clients, we developed these new enhancements to assist companies with their global subsidiary governance needs," said Mike Brody, executive vice president for the World Records division. "We're excited to be offering these advanced capabilities."
A new Advanced Reporting Module lets users report on customized fields as well as standard ones. It works with the "Time Machine" function to produce reports as of a certain date and features sophisticated filtering on multiple data categories to produce numerous reports.
The World Records 6.1 release is available for installation on a company's local server for in-house Intranet delivery or may be accessed through the Internet in a hosted environment. It is customizable to fit the needs of companies whether they have a few subsidiaries or thousands.
