Cofunds, the leading general investment platform in the UK, has partnered with leading software provider Intelliflo to offer advisers two-way integration with Intelliflo’s award-winning web-based business management system, Intelligent Office.
Available from February 2015 to selected firms, the two-way integration allows users to send information between both Cofunds and Intelliflo’s systems, resulting in a more efficient way to manage their business and clients.
The innovative two-way integration will streamline processes in the following areas:
- Simpler new customer applications - re-using client information already held to avoid duplication of work.
- Integrated trading – seamless instructions for lump sum trades (including new business submission for ISAs and investment funds) – avoiding paper or re-keying of information already held in Intelligent Office.
- Reconciliation of platform information back from Cofunds to Intelligent Office – including trade settlement, transaction history and up to date valuations.
Over the coming months Cofunds will be working with a number of firms to activate the two-way integration and provide support to ensure smooth adoption of the new technology.
Stephen Wynne-Jones, Head of Marketing Operations at Cofunds, commented: “Our partnership with Intelliflo is a strategic step towards aligning the business with the best technology specialist suppliers in the industry. It also forms part of our ongoing commitment to helping advisers streamline their processes to make it as efficient as possible to service their clients.
“Intelliflo gives users a two-way flow of information between Cofunds and the adviser, therefore helping build a fuller picture of a client’s financial profile. This should ultimately save advisers considerable time, helping give their best advice based on the full picture, and remove any room for error."
Intelliflo’s Executive Chairman Nick Eatock added: “Given Cofunds’ position in the market as the leading general investment platform in the UK, we’re delighted to be working with them to offer their clients an enhanced web-based business management experience.”
