hCUE Offers Corporate Secretaries An Online Resource For Measurable Corporate Governance
New Product From CT
Corporation Combines Intelligent Web-Based Tools With Authoritative Information and Content From CCH INCORPORATED
(NEW YORK, NY July 21, 2002) – Corporate secretaries and their
associates now have a Web-based resource that will aid them in
managing and controlling their many corporate governance
responsibilities. CT Corporation, the leading corporate legal services
provider, announced today the launch of hCue (www.hcue.com),
a tool designed to help corporate governance professionals improve
their internal corporate monitoring capabilities.
"The corporate secretary’s vital role in enhancing both long
term value for shareholders and the financial viability of the
business has never been so clear. In our market research, corporate
secretaries told us that their greatest need was for a corporate
governance tool that helps them ensure that their system of checks and
balances is working," said Cherie Hernandez, Senior Product
Manager. "By promoting corporate transparency and accountability,
hCue helps them do just that."
As experts in compliance matters, CT Corporation integrated content
from sister companies CCH INCORPORATED and Aspen Publishers into its
product design, including the highly regarded Corporate Secretary’s
Guide published by CCH. The result is a unique workspace for
corporate governance professionals – one that brings together both
intelligent, interactive tools with authoritative information on
regulatory and statutory law and best practices. "This
combination of resources from the most trusted providers is a great
benefit to our customers," said John Kelly, Vice President, Sales
With corporate records information, tools and current information
housed in one, convenient Web-based workspace, hCue gives corporate
secretaries a centralized source with which they can increase their
effectiveness in managing corporate disclosure, accountants’
oversight, and insider transaction reporting.
Highlights of hCue’s functionality include:
- Compliance aids that automatically cue users to filing dates,
board meetings and other critical deadlines, and help them manage
and track information on corporate structure, key personnel,
meetings and minute books. These include fully interactive
calendars, checklists and to do lists, communication and
collaboration tools, and SEC tracking tools.
- A library of up-to-date reference material on corporate
governance best practices and regulatory and statutory law
supplied by CCH INCORPORATED and Aspen Publishers. This library is
indexed and annotated. Topical alerts and notifications on
regulatory changes are also posted on users’ personalized
"My hCue" home page, keeping them abreast of important
changes as they occur.
- A knowledge repository that helps the entire corporate
governance team use consistent information about corporate
structure, subsidiaries, entities, ownership structure, management
and more. Users build their corporate structure data once and have
a reusable, searchable knowledge base to facilitate their
subsequent corporate filing and reporting activities.
"In an age of more stringent standards of
accountability and tighter disclosure requirements, hCue is a valuable
tool that gives the corporate secretary’s office more
transparency," said Gene Landoe, President and CEO,
CCH Legal Information Services. "For example, they will be able
to more easily see and avert potential corporate governance risks
before they become conflicts of interest or other problems."
