After implementing Certent, we have a much more efficient process. We are able to utilize Excel® to update tables in the document immediately.”

The Situation

The Director of Financial Reporting at LifePoint Health, a publicly- traded, Fortune 500 healthcare operator across the U.S., wanted to enable his team to shorten its reporting cycle without sacrificing quality. They faced the common challenges of facilitating input from multiple parties and manual input and copying of data, which were intensified by tight deadlines. As team leader, he sought a solution that would enable multi-user collaboration, automation for data entry, and acceleration of workflow.

The Transformation

The director of financial reporting saw the potential to elevate LifePoint Health’s SEC filing process and looked to Certent Disclosure Management for his reporting needs. After he implemented Certent, LifePoint had the infrastructure in place to streamline the process of creating the company’s SEC filings. “Now that we have implemented Certent we have a much more efficient process and are able to utilize Excel® to update tables in the document instantly.” Also, by allowing multiple users to work within the document simultaneously, the reporting team was able to shave valuable time off of their lengthy reporting cycle.

While there are a variety of software features the financial reporting team cannot live without, the team maintains that it is the Certent support team and dedicated accountants that “sets Certent apart” from the competition.
