Raise your wealth management CRM from the office to the cloud

Are you still using a legacy on-premise solution for your CRM?  I get it, you're nervous about a number of things. Let me help put your mind at ease. Investment advisors are fiduciaries who innately understand the importance of protecting client data and confidentiality. Which is why some advisory firms might be wary about the concept of cloud-based technology.  But shifting from servers you can see in your own office to a virtual network of software and services running entirely through the Internet (the “cloud”) doesn’t make your core business systems and files vulnerable -- we believe it is quite the opposite. Firms using on-premise Client Relationship Management (CRM) technology face challenges such as costly maintenance issues and limited resources, not to mention regular exposure to data leaks and security breaches.  Converting to a cloud-based CRM not only helps address these issues and provides more secure storage for your data, it makes that data and software accessible online anytime, anywhere, from any device. So as a firm looking to make a move, where do you start? What can you expect?  I’ve worked alongside hundreds of financial advisors, many who were hesitant at first about cloud-based solutions. I’ll share those concerns with you and demonstrate why making the switch to the cloud can actually help your business grow.

What I'm looking forward to at AdvisorEngine in 2021

A new year is just around the corner, and I’m really excited to talk about our product roadmap, but first, I want to say my thoughts are with everyone who has been impacted by Covid-19. It’s my sincere wish that all of you, your family and friends stay safe and healthy. There’s nothing more important than the well-being of your loved ones.  The incredible news that vaccines are becoming available now makes me even more hopeful we’ll be able to come back together in 2021. I look forward to being in an office with my colleagues again, catching a Broadway show with my family and having a nice dinner surrounded by friends.

The cost of Client Relationship Management (CRM) software for financial advisors

As a financial advisor, you take pride in how you’ve cultivated deep relationships with your clients. But in a new reality where it is difficult to meet in person, you’re naturally concerned about how to maintain those connections. The right Client Relationship Management (CRM) technology system can not only help you stay connected to clients during this global pandemic, it can strengthen your ability to personalize your client service and help you win new business. Streamlining workflows makes it simpler to stay in touch with clients, while automating tasks frees advisors to concentrate on the conversations that clients value most.
