Why these companies joined forces to create Rivio:

Both Erik Asgeirsson, President and CEO of, and Brian Fox, President of, have had career long passions which include: ending the era of financial fraud, the proliferation of cloud accounting technology, and improving the accounting workflow.

A financial clearinghouse for private businesses was a missing piece in the profession.  Erik and Brian both felt as though it was something that was truly needed in the market, as well as transform the way in which we do business.

Over the past decade, cloud technology has transformed the business community. The accounting industry is at an inflection point in regards to the audit process and tools we utilize. The profession is in great need to automate: data extraction, data analytics, continuous audits, and new audit services. For public organizations, a lot of this has been accomplished through SEC EDGAR. Until now, there has not been a solution to help the private business market solve this pain point.

Our team has the desire and capabilities to drive significant advances in transforming the future of the audit for privately held companies. The clearinghouse solution has teamed with the AICPA A&A team and the Audit Quality initiatives. We are very excited at the potential the clearinghouse solution has to transform the market. We believe the that clearinghouse is helping to mold the future of the audit by:

  • Providing digital delivery of audit documents
  • Validating the source of audit documents
  • Providing an EDGAR type clearinghouse for private organizations
  • Connecting all financial stakeholders, through one platform, without breaking privacy.
