Use of XML Format Improves Shareholder Data Quality for Retrieval, Search and Analysis

Advancing the SEC’s goal of omnibus account transparency as specified in the recently finalized SEC Rule 22c-2, Access Data Corp., the leading provider of omnibus transparency solutions for the mutual fund industry, announced today that it has established a standard reporting format across record keeping sources using eXtensible Mark-Up Language (XML). By adopting the use of XML, a tagged data format, Access Data is improving the quality of data available from omnibus accounts for reporting to investors, Boards, auditors, and regulators.

“We utilized XML data formats in developing our patented Interface Objects™ technology to establish interfaces with multiple sub-accounting systems, enabling Access Data SalesVision® clients to aggregate and normalize data for all shareholder accounts, across all platforms,” said Dan Cwenar, president and chief operating officer of Access Data. “We have now expanded our use of XML technology to establish a standard reporting interface in order to seamlessly integrate and synchronize SalesVision data with the client’s internal applications such as CRM, ERP and financial reporting systems. The use of this state-of-the-art technology, combined with our deep experience in financial services, arms SalesVision clients with the technology tools they need in order to meet the requirements of omnibus account transparency,” added Mr. Cwenar.

Data tagging is gaining prominence as a format for enhancing the quality of data that can be retrieved, searched and analyzed through automated means. The SEC is currently encouraging fund companies to participate in its voluntary data tagging program for EDGAR filings. Access Data SalesVision utilizes tagged data in XML format to aggregate data from multiple sources to improve the ability of fund companies to identify market timers, track payments to distributors, streamline wholesaler compensation and improve sales reporting. Now, utilizing XML, SalesVision can improve data availability and quality to enhance internal enterprise applications and fulfill reporting requirements of the SEC and other regulatory bodies.
