IT could drive your business forward

Find out how the latest technology can help your business and be in with a chance of winning a car

This month’s Money Marketing Live in Manchester will once again have an arena dedicated to the future of technology in financial services.

Taking place at the G-Mex centre in Manchester on October 31, the Technology Village will provide financial advisers with an insight into the latest products and services available.

In the seminar programme, Richard Goddall, sales and marketing director of software firm 1st, will look at remote working and identify how it is now possible for advisers to access all client data and records where and when they need it.

Brod Whiting, head of business development at Assureweb, will discuss whether e-business and technology has delivered what it promised for advisers and if straight-through processing has finally arrived.

It is important for advisers to understand the benefits of technology and this is underlined by many in the industry.

1st marketing manager Elizabeth Williams says: “Technology is designed to facilitate the advice process, from the first point of contact, through to the development of the long-term relationship with all clients.

“By reducing the hours spent on compliance and administration, technology ensures that time is created to prepare and deliver the highest standards of advice.

“How can any professional organisation offering financial advice afford to miss this opportunity?”

Plum Software managing director Ann Dempster says: “Advisers realise that by using the right technology solutions they can improve their business processes, thereby reducing costs and enabling them to spend more time with their clients.”
