Focus platform aims to cover front, mid and back offices

Focus Solutions is offering a new office technology platform for financial services distributors.

Focus 360 is to support pre-sale and post-sale processes from high-net-worth to execution only and is being aimed at advisers and providers.

The firm says the first four contracts should be completed within a month.

Financial services product director Dave Upton says the company has developed the most advanced sales and sales support solution in the market, covering the key processes of point of sale and extranet technology, sales support and back office functionality.

He says: “Focus 360 whole office solution is pushing the boundaries of sales process automation solutions and is receiving positive interest in the distributor community.”

The company says the “fully integrated single solution” allows organisations to reduce the number of separate systems needed for front, mid and back-office tasks.

Upton adds: “We believe that Focus 360 offers organisations a fully integrated single technology platform that enables the acquisition and servicing of new customers in the most effective and efficient way.”
