Compliance software for the Corporate Secretary – two additional capabilities

An informative advertisement/article in Met. Corp. Counsel, April 2007 at 35, describes the offerings of Corporation Services Co. (CSC) regarding software for corporate secretaries (See my posts of July 19, 2006 on board software, Aug. 9, 2006 on the merger of corporate secretary and board software; Oct. 1, 2006 on matter management software joined with corporate service-of-process software; Jan. 24, 2006 for ten corporate-secretary applications; and Feb. 14, 2007 on the cottage industry of corporate secretarial packages.). Most of the article describes the company’s Virtual Boardroom software suite.

Among its offerings is a capability I have not written about: CSC Compliance Calendarsm, which can be customized to send alerts for specific events such as nonprofit filings and SEC or regulatory filings. Another new capability, which CSC is finishing, is an “audit committee checklist based on the responsibilities of audit committees as outlined in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.” I note these capabilities – new to me – in their own right and to make the larger point that well-run software vendors continuously strengthen and extend their offerings.
