Nutrien Cuts Disclosure Research Time in Half with Certent

Certent DisclosureNet provides intuitive and efficient access to public disclosures and helps locate qualitative and quantitative information to establish best practices and perform peer comparisons with ease. With Certent, you can filter searches of EDGAR, SEDAR, ASX, and HMRC using more than 50 built-in criteria including industry, exchange, the company auditor, filing date, and receive automatic email notifications as soon as filings are published. Search criteria, search results, and company lists can all be saved and easily shared via email across your team to maximize collaboration.

Nutrien is the world’s largest provider of crop inputs, services and solutions for agricultural, industrial and feed customers. Since 2006, Nutrien has been using Certent DisclosureNet to streamline research related to their complex financial reporting, resulting in dramatic productivity improvements.

The Situation

Prior to deploying DisclosureNet, Nutrien relied on public search engines such as EDGAR and SEDAR to find key corporate disclosure documents and information—research that was cumbersome and extremely time-consuming.

The Transformation

By partnering with Certent, the company was able to slash that research effort in half. Certent DisclosureNet put more than 40+ criteria, easy filtering, and access to global IFRS statements at their fingertips, with an intuitive interface that made locating filings and precedent much faster.

The Results

Public since 2018, Nutrien can now focus less on tedious research and more on ensuring the accuracy of its reports. “As a result of using Certent DisclosureNet, Nutrien’s financial statements are at the leading edge of financial reporting,” says Malcolm McKay, director of technical accounting at Nutrien. “Our time spent researching has been reduced by over 50%.”
