“FINRA or another agency might ask for the last year’s worth of reviews from the compliance staff,” explained Coloccia. “Running that query on the Smarsh system takes a matter of minutes.
We can show them exactly who’s touched the emails, which employees have been reviewed, how and when they were reviewed. It’s easy to follow. I don’t have to cut and paste to make the report look the way the agencies want to see it.”
