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.

Top 5 marketing strategies for financial advisors

Expectations of working with a financial advisor have changed. The digital world we live in today has played - and will continue to play - a large part in how prospects find, select, and hire financial advisors. These days, most information is consumed digitally and through multiple sources of information - sometimes by only scanning the headlines. With so many resources available, investors make better, more informed buying decisions in all aspects of their lives.

5 CRM functions a financial advisor shouldn’t miss

As a training specialist for AdvisorEngine’s Junxure, I witness first-hand what works and what doesn’t when it comes to running an effective client relationship management (CRM) system. One firm I recently worked with had work processes that literally were all over the place -- scribbled down on whiteboards, shelved inside filing cabinets, noted on sticky notes stuck to walls, handwritten memos, and more.

Junxure CRM reporting is now 6x faster + user performance tips

We are excited to announce new enhancements to our Junxure® product, designed significantly to reduce the time it takes to produce reports. A financial advisor’s time is best spent servicing clients and building relationships, not sitting in front of a screen, waiting for data to load. With that in mind, we’ve rebuilt our functionality to maximize performance. Now, for instance, Action reports will load and be ready to print six times faster.
