Wolters Kluwer Law & Business Launches RBsourceFilings

NEW YORK, N.Y., Sept. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, a leading global provider of intelligent information for business and legal professionals, today announced the launch of RBsourceFilings, an add on to its highly successful RBsource product. RBsourceFilings takes RBsource to the next level, bringing together securities laws, regulations, SEC guidance, filings and SEC Staff Comment Letters in one comprehensive workflow tool that increases efficiency, speeds research time and delivers trusted results.

"Attorneys consult rules, regulations and guidance when preparing an SEC Filing," explains Susan Chazin, Senior Product Line Director. "The next critical step is locating examples of actual filings and precedent language to help draft a new filing. Research and customer feedback showed that having access to both materials in one unified workspace was highly valued and not available in the market. With RBsourceFilings, customers can now utilize a single search interface and global search to speed their work product. As importantly, our renowned editorial expertise as a leader in the securities sector means it is obtaining results securities practitioners can depend on."

RBsourceFilings is unique in that it aligns with practitioners' workflow and integrates disparate components of securities law and filings research into a single unified search/browse experience. It intuitively relates securities rules, regulations and SEC guidance with EDGAR filings. As a result, users can easily locate and compare rules, regulations, guidance and forms with SEC disclosure filings in one step, in a single, seamless workspace. Primary law and SEC filings are topically related, and users can enter a text search within the related content results to quickly narrow and sort results based on specific terms.

Key workflow capabilities include:
Section searching on 10-K, 10-Q, S-1, and 8-K
Ability to compare Registrations and Amendments
Worklist, Saved Search, History and Notes & Highlights
Alerts to updated rules and regulations as well as new filings

"RBsourceFilings gives securities practitioners a complete view of the regulatory and disclosure landscape, streamlining filings research and preparation, ensuring greater value and efficiency for their firm and their clients," adds Chazin. "The fact that it comes from Wolters Kluwer Law & Business provides an unparalleled level of confidence in the results."
