THE SOFTWARE MYTH OF “NO PENCILS DOWN TIME!”
The myth that software eliminates “pencils-down” time will become even more apparent now that limited liability is going away. You may be able to make a change at the last minute, but would you be confident that you are going to also be able to validate it and ensure it is in line with best practices, EDGAR Filer Manual specifications and US-GAAP architecture?
Remember, computers still can’t think, understand the pressure of a deadline, or realize they are rushing, and they won’t take responsibility for any errors made at the last second.
RDG’S TAKE ON TIMELINES?
The reality in any business is that hitting deadlines is essential to running a good department. With this in mind, we take a practical approach to the question of, “What are your timelines?”
Yes, we ask for a version of your document in advance. Being prepared early is good policy. It doesn’t mean you can’t make changes the day of filing.
We believe our timelines are the industry-best for full-service XBRL and EDGAR providers. Judging by what our clients say, we have no reason to believe otherwise. Contact us directly and we will show you how our timelines allow flexibility while maintaining accountability.
RDG’s dedicated account managers are pro-active and assist in keeping your team’s ship tight.
