Enhancement Optimizes On-The-Go Trades for a Mobile Workforce.

Wolters Kluwer Financial Services today launched the next generation of mobile capabilities for its Examiner solution to enable pre-clearance for trade requests by employees-anywhere, anytime-from any mobile device. The Examiner solution automates Code of Ethics compliance, including the monitoring and tracking of employee trading, gifts and entertainment, and political contributions and the disclosure of outside business activities.

The new release comes amidst recent industry trends pointing to a rapid shift to mobile technology seeping into the workplace.

"Today it is estimated that mobile devices account for over 55% of all Internet usage and the distinction between mobile app versus mobile browser continues to fade," said Jim Richardson, director of Investment Compliance Solutions for Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. "We are responding to the needs of a mobile workforce by delivering significantly greater flexibility for employees to submit requests and receive unlimited trade approvals on-the-go."

Examiner iTrade delivers mobile-ready, essential content for an optimized experience that is easily accessible, reinforcing a culture of compliance and improving company use of resources at the same time. Traders now have access to pre-clearance whether they are in the office, away from their desk at a meeting or traveling to meet with clients. The advanced mobile technology for Examiner is built on HTML5, now widely accepted as the standard for developing cross-platform mobile and web capabilities.

"Examiner's mobile capabilities allow compliance professionals to keep ahead of an ever changing regulatory environment and the myriad of procedures that come with staying compliant," said Carol Beckett, compliance manager of Investment Compliance Solutions for Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. "Providing employees with remote access to a pre-approval process that delivers expedited feedback encourages a culture where compliance is painless and routine."
