SHELTON, Connecticut, April 16 /PRNewswire/ --

- Expanded and more dynamic reporting for all audiences

Computershare Limited (ASX: CPU) announced today the release of the Global Entity Management System application, version 6.1 (GEMS v6.1). This is the first version of the application to be released through Computershare Governance Services, a business unit that was formed by combining the acquisition of the Datacare Software Group with Computershare's World Records business.

A key feature of GEMS v6.1 is the addition of the advanced reporting module. Using a "drag and drop" approach, the module allows administrators to produce and format reports from information in customized fields, as well as from the standard fields.

Producing reports for company executives, colleagues, or external auditors is a critical part of managing entity records for subsidiary governance. With the advanced reporting module, users can filter multiple data categories simultaneously as well as modify, clone, or delete reports so clients can produce all the vital information in one-streamlined report.

"Our clients told us how important it is to have flexible reporting options. The introduction of the advanced reporting module was a direct result of their feedback," said Andrew Moore, Head of Computershare Governance Services, North America. "For our clients, dissemination of their subsidiary governance data just became a lot easier."

In addition to the reporting functions, the latest release has more than 30-new items including a shortcut that allows users to quickly see the most recently viewed or added records. And now, the system administrator is automatically notified when company ownership data is changed. Additionally, the compliance dashboard and reporting options have become more dynamic. For clients reporting in Ireland and Germany, several standard forms for various jurisdictions have been added in GEMS v6.1 to facilitate reporting in those countries.
