Well suited for privately or publicly held companies with stock option plans or ESPP. Helpful for calculating stock compensation expense.

Pros

Certent Equity Compensation Management

  • Expense calculations – the whole accounting for equity awards is pretty technical and not real easy to follow. It does a good job of calculating GAAP expense for each award.

  • Provide overview for employees regarding their equity portfolio.
  • Keep equity plans organized from an administrator point-of-view.

Cons

Certent Equity Compensation Management

  • We had to have an external consultant oversee and manage the software for us. It wasn’t easy enough for us to use on our own. Some of that may be because of the feeding of information between EASI and UBS Onesource software which is used for participant management of equity awards.
  • We just have read capabilities in-house and the ability to set-up new users. Anything needed to uploaded we have to send to our consultant, Plan Mosaic, to upload.
  • While some of the reporting is good, some is not that good. You are able to generate reports in PDF and download into Excel. However, some of the reports in Excel would dump a lot of unnecessary information and require you to do a lot of manual clean up.

  • If banking information is incorrect for proceeds it can take weeks before notification of rejection and communication can be missed once sent
  • Different activity views can show different data when a transaction is 'in process'
  • Wish there was an option to test banking information entered for deposits, mine was rejected due to an unexpected issue with the name on my account

I personally like the Equity Edge software better. The reporting is better and the software easier to use. The reason we didn’t continue to work with them is we didn’t want to use E-Trade as captive broker.

We do not access support directly. We go through Plan Mosaic.

We had a great team consisting of two Solium Shareworks admin experts, and one financial reporting expert to help us with the implementation. After the implementation, I feel we are in good hands with the Solium Shareworks relationship manager. We have quarterly contact with the team when new grants need to be added. Other then that, we are self-sufficient with the tool.

We had a 2 hour introduction to the software over a Webex meeting by Plan Mosaic, and a user guide. Plan Mosaic is a reseller.

Implementation Rating

Certent Equity Compensation Management

A lot of decisions had been made already when I joined. I thought it was a fairly smooth process. You just need to make sure that you do a good job of auditing all the awards that are transferred from system to system. We did a reverse stock split that caused challenges with rounding of shares.

Return on Investment

Certent Equity Compensation Management

  • It saved us a full time headcount of someone manually tracking all options. Most public companies have someone dedicated to stock plan administration, or at least a 0.5 FTE. We didn’t have that luxury here.
  • However there are costs. We have to hire a consultant Plan Mosaic to work with the system that costs $2k/month. I am not very happy with them. They are a really small shop, so you don’t have a lot of people you could call to get stuff done. Only 1-2 people can get things done for you.
