The Company Name Change Wizard is used when a company has legally changed its name, and all the information linked to the previous company name must be transferred to the new name. The wizard walks you through the process of recording the name change so that it is reflected in all the appropriate locations in Novatus.
When the wizard completes the name change process, the old company name will be listed in the Additional Names screen of the Company Profile as a FKA (formerly known as).
