Review Queues

When it comes to the primary review of messages, reviewers have purpose-built interfaces to facilitate flow and engage in their review performance. With the Supervision App, reviewers have a custom workspace for a Google-like review experience.


Policies & Policy Management

Rich policy management is available for multi-national, regional, and country-specific supervisory requirements from FINRA, IIROC, FCA, and MiFID II, and more. Clients benefit from reduced false positive rates through expressive policies that can be applied globally or uniquely to each communications channel. Supervision policies are intuitive, easy to construct and human-readable for maximum review efficiency.


Configurable Workflows

Configurable supervisory workflows can be adapted to meet each organization's unique requirements. Flexible escalation paths can be enabled to meet centralized and decentralized review models.



The Supervision App has complete APIs to integrate with trade, voice and behavioral analysis tools for comprehensive compliance surveillance.

Reports can be generated across your review organization to prove design of your supervision system as well as tracking completion of supervision tasks. User-defined reports and custom reports can be built by reviewers using a wide selection of data points.

Review Queues

The Supervision App is a one-stop-shop to a more prescriptive review process, allowing reviewers to mark and assign messages, read and add notes, and view details in a single location. One-click functionality in Review Queues, which can be populated by specific network or content types and can be combined with escalation paths, maximize efficiency in the review process.


Policies & Policy Management

Users can manage and govern the safe usage of all electronic communications by implementing policies to meet regulatory compliance and mitigate other risks. The Supervision App offers a basic set of pre-defined policies to address common compliance issues and typical risks while reducing the white noise of irrelevant messages. Users can then add new policies and refine existing ones at any time to further reduce the number of messages flagged for review to only those that pose real risk.


Configurable Workflows

The Supervision App’s action panel enables users to easily mark messages as Reviewed, an Escalation, or a Violation. Escalation Queues allow supervisions to identify and assign messages quickly that require urgent attention and perform additional review. Reviewers can prioritize easily with at-a-glance status and disposition of messages.

Supervision users can pull reports to evaluate review progress for individual reviewers or an entire team. The app also features built-in audit trails that show the activities on every message, which can aid internal and external audits.


Simple Onboarding & User Experience

Onboarding for the Supervision App is simple to enable review teams to get up and running quickly. Customized set-up allows teams to create specific criteria for reviewers, so everyone has access to the relevant information they need. Users also have access to a refined knowledge base of articles to guide them through the supervision process and the Smarsh Professional Services team can be made available to assist with policy tuning, assisted review and to provide a Supervision Health Check.
