Information in unison, not in parallel
The rationale to embrace digital transformation for small and medium sized businesses in the Financial Services industry has never been stronger. At its centre, a seamless information backbone – information no longer hidden in parallel, disconnected siloes but securely distributed throughout your organisation.
The information backbone, combined with powerful productivity tools and integrated applications, simplifies it all. Connect with clients, colleagues and counterparts from any device, build stronger relationships and successfully collaborate on key tasks and objectives.
The cloudz suite for Financial Service firms
Managing the risks associated with establishing, maintaining & building strong client relationships is crucial. We witness many smaller or mid sized financial services firms that continue to suffer from a lack of automation. The increasing demands of meeting regulatory and compliance requirements places pressure on budgets with the technology solutions available to big-budget firms simply uneconomical or unavailable. This leaves professional and support staff spending time and effort to manually process data in disconnected “siloes” with the aid of desktop tools. The result :
- Control of information often rests in the hands of the individual and not the firm, making it difficult to meet compliance standards and control data security.
- More difficult to leverage relationships and cross-sell services into different client segments, reducing the ability to optimise your client relationships.
- Poor access to comprehensive, timely client information, with month-end reporting a common practice.
- Client facing professionals lack easy access to a complete view of their clients’ position and performance.
- Lack of clarity around commercial effectiveness, e.g the true costs of client acquisition and maintenance.
