NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Advisor Group, one of the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer networks, today announced it made the 2013 InformationWeek 500, a list of top technology innovators in the U.S.
“Every enterprise is now a digital business — or needs to become one fast. The organizations in our ranking are leading the way.”
“We are very pleased to be included in the InformationWeek 500 list for the third year in a row,” said David Ballard, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Advisor Group. “We focus on providing advisors cutting-edge technology solutions that save time and allow them to focus on what they do best: serve their clients and grow their business. We have invested heavily in our open architecture platform in recent years and will continue to introduce new technology to our advisors.”
Advisor Group enhanced its state of the art Office Automation Suite to provide financial advisors even more efficient, user-friendly tools to submit critically important documentation to the firm. Advisors are responsible for completing a multitude of paperwork related to client accounts. To increase advisor efficiency, eliminate errors and simplify this documentation process, Advisor Group developed a customized solution to allow advisors to insert and modify client data from the firm’s system and automatically submit documents for processing – valuable time savings measures. The solution also allows advisors to save information from partially completed documents and bundle commonly used forms. Further, the solution is compatible with all mobile devices, allowing advisors to complete and access critically important client documents any time, anywhere.
“Now, more than ever, advisors need flexible, efficient tools to save time and better serve clients,” said Ballard. “We live in a digital world and our enhanced Office Automation Suite is the solution for today’s advisor.”
“The theme of this year's InformationWeek 500 is digital business. It's a movement, rooted in data analytics, mobile computing, social networking and other customer-focused technologies that are turning companies and industries on their ear," said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. “Every enterprise is now a digital business — or needs to become one fast. The organizations in our ranking are leading the way."
