  • Inefficiencies in workflow resulting in delays, increased costs and missed deadlines
  • Geographically dispersed internal/external teams
  • Complicated, time-consuming regulatory processes and requirements
  • Lack of fluency in XBRL and EDGAR leading to errors when filing
  • Varied underwriter style requirements
