Corp Charts allows you to display ownership by parent or subsidiary and create simple-to-complex hierarchical graphs. The charts are automatically created in Microsoft Visio so you can use colors and shapes to display key information according to your preferences. You can use any of the Visio graphics tools to modify the chart as desired and Bridgeway provides an Organization Chart toolbar that allows you to change the default layout of the chart (from horizontal to vertical, etc.). Additional shapes are provided on the Shapes toolbox using the Bridgeway Chart stencil. If your corporate structure changes, it is easy to update an existing chart
Restricted Entity Edits
Bridgeway's unique Restricted Entity Edits feature gives you greater control on edits made to your entity information. It allows the administrator to require that certain user's changes be approved before they are accepted into Secretariat. Then approvers can view a list of edits awaiting approval via the Lobby widget and/or receive e-mail notification of edits awaiting approval. After being approved by a designated user, the changes will be made in the database and will be reflected in the Secretariat. In addition, the user who made the changes will receive an e-mail informing the user if the change was approved or rejected.
Bridgeway's Analysis Center is a powerful ad-hoc reporting tool that allows you to build standard, analytical, and graphical reports from any Secretariat data. Analysis Center uses an easy to learn drag-and-drop user interface that will empower many more people in your legal department to create reports. Reports will automatically abide by Secretariat security rules.
