Pros: Quick searching in SEDAR and EDGAR databases for specific disclosures and SEC comment letters. Easy search terms. Lots of features, including SEDI, accounting standards, document compare etc.

Cons: The results screen lacks in a big way compared to other software programs, i.e. in a search that yields 200 or so results, you can only see 15 on screen at any time, unless you adjust your screen resolution. Some of the onscreen real estate seems wasted.

Overall: Reduction in time spent on research and reduction in cost for a source of IFRS standards

The depth and breadth of my ability to perform a search is amazing.

Pros: The breadth of information available is extremely useful, ever since the data moved beyond Canadian filings.

The easiest way to search for and through public company announcements and documents.

Pros: The ability to enter keyword search terms (such as names or a description of a transaction) to narrow down relevant documents within a particular company or to look for examples of similar documents from other companies.

Cons: Document sub-categories are not created explicitly for Australian transactions, but use generic headings applicable to other countries (ie. there is no category called "Appendix 3B" but instead is listed under "Change of Director's Interest Notice").

Overall: Advanced search capability

Just the right balance between ease of use and accessible power-user features

Pros: While I think the basic search interface is easy to use and well-laid out, the thing I like the most is the ability to click on search results and be taken directly, in PDF filings, to the highlighted section. This is incredibly useful and speeds up document review.

Cons: I find the feedback when selecting items in the filters often confusing: for instance, when putting in a dollar range, it is unclear whether you just click away from the control, click on it, or whether there is some other step you are supposed to take to make the selection "stick".

Overall: Ability to quickly review proxy statements for data on executive compensation programs and assist in developing/reviewing peer groups.

I am a translator and I make a daily use of Certent Disclosure Net, which is very helpful

Pros: What I like most is the possibility to find the French translation of most regulated documents and the option to view the English and French version side to side.

Cons: What I like leaset about this software is the fact that no results are found if the search string is too long, even when the document does exist.

Overall: Easy of use and very helpful

Great product but with a few glitches that I will discuss with customer service

Pros: Easy to use. The system is easily understandable for new users and provides fast response time to searches initiated. I especially like the search tools that the system utilizes.

Cons: Lack of an app. For the iPad it must be used with safari browser. It would be useful to have an app available to use with the product.

Overall: Faster research on competitors and also insider trading etc. Like the triggers for Emil notifications.
