Imaging and Workflow is one of several automated Broadridge services that offer a time saving and cost-efficient alternative to manual work methods. Our process is designed to adhere to SEC recordkeeping and record retention rules (Rule 17a-3 and Rule 17a-4) and is unlike others offered in the industry that merely scan and archive document images.
