Advisor Office Automation Suite Tools Watch Demo

Managing - and growing - your book of business is demanding. Our Office Automation Suite includes a CRM solution, an e-Forms library, e-signature capabilities and a document management system, all of which can be used either individually or as a package, depending upon your needs. The Suite’s goal is to ease the administrative burdens associated with conducting your day-to-day activities. How?

  • Log on once.
  • Enter data once.
  • Pre-populate electronic forms with existing data.
  • Have clients sign documents using eSignature

The Office Automation Suite features tools that can be implemented individually, or integrated together, to form the foundation of an automated office:

Salesforce CRM (Customer Relationship Management)

Salesforce, our cloud-based CRM solution, consolidates information on your clients and prospects and is available to you directly from Advisor Portal. Manage activities including letters, emails, and meetings and maintain notes from all client discussions and meetings with the integrated CRM platform. Salesforce integrates with our document management offering, allowing advisors to view client documents. In addition, Salesforce synchs with Outlook.

An eForms library

An electronic library of more than 20,000 easy-to-find forms from your broker-dealer, clearing firm and partner companies is available. But the eForms Library is more than a repository of forms. It’s a time-saving tool that allows you to retrieve the data you need to populate sections of the form - with a mere click of your mouse. Because the eForms library is integrated with Salesforce and Advisor Portal, forms can be populated with information you’ve previously input.

Electronic Forms Library: Adobe Lite

eForms Adobe Lite is a version of eForms Library that allows the ability to gather and complete forms without having to depend on Adobe to launch the form. This solution allows you to:

Populate forms using client data from Client Central and/or access blank forms

Save forms as a work in progress

eSignature capabilities

The process of capturing client signatures can also be automated with the Advisor Office Automation Suite through the use of eSignatures. The Suite offers two options for capturing eSignatures on eForms: digital and electronic.

Document Management
