Best Solution Integrating Content into Workflow.
New York (PRWEB) January 21, 2011
Alacra, a leading provider of online business information solutions, and a three time Software and Information Industry Association CODiE award winner, today announced that Alacra Compliance has been nominated as a 2011 CODiE Awards finalist. Alacra Compliance, a modular workflow application that helps financial institutions address risk and regulatory requirements with an efficient, consistent and documented investigative process is now a finalist for "Best Solution Integrating Content into Workflow."
Ken Wasch, President of the SIIA, praised Alacra for "its commitment to quality, excellence and innovation. The judges saw a lot of value in Alacra Compliance, and I wish them the best in the SIIA member voting process and the selection of winners."
Using Alacra Compliance, an investment or commercial bank can significantly accelerate their KYC, CIP, EDD, and credit investigation processes. Alacra Compliance allows for a single query across all critical data sources and generates one result set for all premium, proprietary and web content. An audit report feature automatically generates a PDF file of the investigator's findings, and the ability to add annotations makes recordkeeping for audits far simpler. In addition, Alacra Compliance, like other Alacra solutions, can be configured to match each firm's regulatory risk and anti-money laundering policies, as well as the look and feel of each firm's brand identity.
Perrin Kerravala recently reported on Alacra Compliance in VIP magazine, "Not only does the tool simplify compliance-related searching, it has the potential to help firms to standardize their source universe and reporting practices."
"Being recognized by our peers for best-in-class content integration is very exciting for us," said Steven Goldstein, Alacra CEO. "Building workflow solutions is truly what Alacra does best and it is a great thrill for our whole team."
Alacra also had the distinct honor of winning this same CODiE Awards category in 2008 with Alacra Book, a first-of-its-kind electronic publishing application used by investment banks, law firms, professional service firms, consultancies, and corporations in streamlining their daily preparation of Public Information Books (PIBs) or Briefing Books.
