Keeping clients in the loop
Leaders in the financial software space, Advice Intelligence, have found that the interactive model of their WealthApp customer portal increases positive sentiment from customers toward their financial advisor. The app centralises the client’s profile and information in one place and allows them to access their financial performance in visual form from their own device whenever they want. If they wish to consult their advisor from the picture they see, the advisor has their personal information on the Customer Relationship Management platform readily available from their own device and can have that discussion at any time. From a management perspective, the seamless interactions between client and advisor contributes to healthier and more productive outcomes for both the client and the firm.
