KCSA Strategic Communications‘ new tool, The IR App, is now available for download on the iPhone and iPad. The app gives public companies the opportunity to create a customized app containing live data feeds with stock information, analyst coverage, news releases, SEC filings, and more within two weeks time.
“Using this app shows a company’s willingness to embrace 21st century technology, demonstrating that it is willing to go that extra step for its investors and stakeholders,” said Jeff Corbin, CEO of KCSA in an email.
IROs have been notoriously slow to adopt digital technologies in their work because of fears that they’ll end up on the wrong side of government regulations. Corbin said they’re beginning to loosen up, whether they want to or not.
