Workiva enables teams to effectively manage compliance activities through easily traceable and accessible reporting and documentation.
One centralised platform
The Workiva could platform is a single source for preparation, storage and control over CASS Resolution Packs, controls documentation and activity. By managing all related materials in a centralised, accessible system, firms ensure compliance with all CASS requirements.
Retrieve documentation immediately
Audit trail features provide clear evidence of material updates taking place and changes to roles and responsibilities. Export a full audit trail, compare versions and highlight changes throughout the documentation process. Add comments and assign tasks to contributors from within the reporting environment.
