SecondFloor eFrame® product orchestrates the data, systems and processes essential for Solvency II, Basel III, IFRS, and other regulations

  1. 1. eFrame®Workflow, Governance and ProcessControl for Efficient and AccurateAnalytics and ReportingeFrame® automates the collection and validation of data from across theorganisation for regulatory and management reporting and improved insightinto risk. It works with a firm’s existing systems to create a repeatable processthat lightens the administrative burden, ensures excellent governance, andproduces accurate, auditable reports that senior management and regulatorysupervisors can trust. The challenge: escalating reporting • Auditability – eFrame® records every action demands taken to create a report, every calculation made in the production of the figures, and every source Organisations of all sizes struggle to system supplying the underlying data meet the reporting demands of markets,regulators and senior management. Report production • Process Control – eFrame® institutes aoften involves much manual intervention, with the workflow for report creation, automatically alertingcollection and collation of vast amounts of data from individuals to the need to supply sign off data,across the business creating a real risk of errors, ensuring that all data is approved and validatedomissions and delays. • Traceability – all data collected by – eFrame®It’s an expensive and time-consuming exercise that is traceable to its original source, ensuringdetracts from day-to-day operations, and its manual management or supervisory queries aboutnature means the process has to be started again reported figures can be managed efficientlyfrom scratch when the next report is due. • Repeatability – once a reporting process is defined in eFrame®, it can be run and re-run at any time; making it ideal for quarter-end andTrustworthy reports for confident decision-making year-end reports to markets and regulators, aseFrame® is a software application that works with a well as more frequent internal reporting andfirm’s existing systems to automate and accelerate ad-hoc stress testingthe reporting process for: • Trustworthiness – reports are prepared • Regulatory reports such as those required according to a definitive process established under Solvency II and Basel III within eFrame®, so senior management can have complete confidence in their integrity • Internal management reporting for risk-related decision-making • Timeliness – with regulators requiring reports to be submitted within a few weeks of quarter and year-end, eFrame®’s automated processTrustworthy, auditable and repeatable reporting enables tight timeframes to be met with ease with its Time-Window Driven Reporting™ approach.eFrame® brings major benefits to entity-level and eFrame® orchestrates all the data, systems,consolidated group-level reporting processes: processes and people involved in a reporting cycle to ensure reports are delivered within deadlines, everytime • History – eFrame® preserves a record of data used in previous reports, enabling reports to be compared to previous periods, and allowing historical data to be re-used when appropriate
