With security, automation, and disclosure integrity top of mind, Certent streamlines your SEC reporting process.

External reporting is arguably one of the most critical activities public companies engage in, and when done well, improves corporate reputation and share price. Yet this process has traditionally been laden with inefficiencies and version control issues, which can result in dire consequences including: missed deadlines, regulatory fines and penalties, and loss of shareholder confidence. Certent eliminates manual processes, reduces risk, and automates your end-to-end external reporting cycle.
