Fast, Efficient EDGAR Filings In HTML With EDGAR Ease+
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., September 26, 2002) Ė With SEC filing
deadlines becoming ever more stringent, filers no longer have the time
for tedious hand-coding and hours of wrestling tables into shape,
according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of securities
law information and compliance tools. To slash filing time and provide
an integrated solution for preparing and filing EDGAR documents in
HTML, CCH has introduced EDGAR Ease+TM, the fastest, most
efficient way to create SEC filings in what is becoming the SECís
preferred format. For more information, call 888-89-EDGAR or visit the
web site at edgarease.com.
Those attending the annual NASPP conference in Las Vegas, September 29
to October 2, can see EDGAR Ease+ at booth 410.
EDGAR Ease+ lets users complete EDGAR filings, convert them to an
HTML format and transmit the filing to the SEC in a single package.
Building from the CCH EDGAR Ease software, this new package adds
automation and formatting tools at every turn and provides a complete
environment for importing documents, editing and formatting them,
checking for errors and transmitting finished documents to the SEC
without ever leaving the program.
"The SEC is moving toward an HTML standard for EDGAR filings.
EDGAR Ease+ is a quick and simple filing solution for companies who
want to be ready when HTML becomes the official filing format,"
said Peter Berkery, Associate Publisher of the CCH Securities Group.
This software also helps companies comply with the new SEC mandate
that requires publicly held companies to post quarterly and annual
filings on their web sites.
EDGAR Ease+ imports and converts documents created in Word,
Wordperfect, Excel, Pagemaker, QuarkXPress and other popular
wordprocessing, spreadsheet and desktop publishing applications.
Powerful editing and formatting tools allow users to quickly and
accurately fine-tune tables, lists and rules. Images can be added with
a few clicks of a mouse, and graphic editing software can be launched
from inside EDGAR Ease + to resize or tweak images for optimal
Since EDGAR Ease + is made specifically for SEC filings, users can
be confident that the HTML code used will conform to SEC
specifications. Extensive error-checking guarantees accuracy of both
form and content, and test filings can be submitted to catch errors
that can only be detected in the SECís EDGAR database.
Public companies of all sizes will benefit from this one-of-a-kind
software by reducing valuable time spent converting documents, or
reducing the costs of outsourcing the tedious task.
With the November 4 foreign filing mandate around the corner,
international companies will be pleased to know that EDGAR Ease+ files
Forms 20F and 6K. EDGAR Ease+ also files Form 4, facilitating usersí
compliance with the new SEC rule requiring insiders to file a Form 4
