New Offerings Provide Firms with Greater Choice and Flexibility
-Financial advisors can open client accounts faster than before, in as few as 90 seconds, using Digital Onboarding that is now available with Advisor360°’s software. Advisor360°’s clients will roll out Digital Onboarding as a part of its Enterprise offering – one of three new offerings the integrated technology software company has introduced to serve wealth management firms.
“A great onboarding experience helps advisors get their relationships with clients off to the right start”
“Digital Onboarding enhances the experience for everyone and brings a new level of efficiency to the advisor’s practice. Our Unified Data Fabric makes it possible to quickly and accurately pre-fill required fields during account opening, which eliminates wasteful errors,” said Darren Tedesco, President at Advisor360°. “Advisors can even open annuities using this capability. This major enhancement also sets the foundation for opening fixed insurance policies and bank accounts.”
Advisor360°’s Digital Onboarding transforms how financial advisors do business by reducing the amount of time it takes for their clients to start using new products and services. Features such as enhanced pre-fill and data collection, Reg BI recommendations, disclosure questions and type-ahead address functionality can be used with all the business lines on the platform. Advisors can bundle and send all account-related forms together to clients through DocuSign for unified and seamless e-signing.
Digital Onboarding uses Advisor360°’s analytics automation engine to power its principal approval system, removing the manual steps typically handled by the broker-dealer’s home office for account openings, which eliminates workflows. An enhanced dashboard introduced as part of the rollout provides status updates to the advisor, their team and the home office throughout the account opening process.
The company has built its own “low code” generation engine for Digital Onboarding to simplify and personalize the onboarding experience. The automated and configurable process facilitates faster engagement between advisors and their clients, supports the advisor’s evolving client base and regulatory requirements, and allows broker-dealers to add new registration types into the workflow without any additional programming. Advisors also benefit from the software’s open architecture and pre-built integrations with third-party applications, such as address verification, and straight-through-processing with annuity processing companies such as Firelight and iPipeline.
“A great onboarding experience helps advisors get their relationships with clients off to the right start,” said Tedesco. “As these relationships mature and client connections deepen over time, advisors need to have the technology in place that can support their growth.”
