NEW YORK—Thomson Reuters has launched a web disclosure solution for regulatory news announcements. Web Disclosure enables companies to meet regulatory disclosure requirements through a Web-based solution that allows them to communicate with and solicit feedback from key audiences all while realizing significant cost savings.
The solution uses web-based self-publishing, providing complete control of the entire press release process from creation to distribution. Extensive Thomson Reuters analytics and reporting tools make it possible for companies to measure the impact of the message, monitor coverage and understand market sentiment across traditional and social media networks.
A core element to Web Disclosure is tight integration with a company's investor relations website which ensures regulatory releases are published on the website at the same time they reach other outlets, a step that lags in the disclosure process today.
"A new era requires new tools that enable public relations and investor relations professionals to compete in today's Web-based, fast-paced world," says Steve Roycroft, global head of corporate services, Thomson Reuters. "Through the evolution of Web-based technologies, companies now have access to broader audiences; more control over how and when they communicate; and access to direct feedback on their messages -- all while leveraging significant cost-efficiencies. Despite these changes, the press release distribution model has remained an antiquated one.”
