Compliance Manager actively monitors each licensee’s deadlines and subject requirements—removing the burden from the professional’s shoulders.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
For licensed professionals, not completing the mandatory continuing professional education (CPE) on time can have serious consequences. Noncompliance can result in a suspended license, financial penalties, and even the assignment of additional hours of education in order to get back on track and get their license reinstated.
Designed to help practitioners avoid these painful career complications and financial penalties, Compliance Manager actively monitors each licensee’s deadlines and subject requirements—removing the burden from the professional’s shoulders. The robust tool automatically tracks CPE compliance periods, and specific subject categories required by each state and national license regulator. This includes all state Boards of Accountancy (for CPAs) and the IRS (which regulates licensing for Enrolled Agents and the new Registered Tax Return Preparers). The tool also tracks compliance for Certified Financial Planners (CFPs) and Certified Management Accountants (CMAs).
Compliance Manager is easy to use. For each required subject area, users see a progress bar showing the percentage they have completed. They can view the number of hours required, hours earned to date, and any deficit. Users can even view a list of courses that qualify to fulfill any credit deficit. If users have an annual CPE requirement within the overall hours required, they see the status of each year as well.
Compliance Manager facilitates monitoring of even the most complicated states and multi-licensed individuals. Users can easily add hours earned through other providers and even upload certificates of completion for storage. Enter a course once and the information flows to all the required subject areas where it qualifies including onto multiple licenses. Firms can monitor the compliance status of all professional staff at a glance.
To keep licensees on track, Compliance Manager sends periodic reminder emails regarding the user’s compliance status. Users can print or generate an export of CPE records for each reporting period with the click of a button. Any changes that regulators make to the CPE requirements are automatically reflected in the user’s records with the appropriate effective date.
