XPLAN announces integration with IRESS

Fintech disruption not fazing advisers

Users of financial planning software XPLAN will soon be able to use SuiteBox’s digital workspaces after the two businesses inked an integration deal this week.

Advisers who use Xplan version 2.21 or higher will be able to liaise with clients over video meetings, screen share documents and apps, and record discussions and details of the meetings to the client’s file notes, according to a statement.

According to IRESS product executive, wealth management Emily Chen, the integration of SuiteBox with Xplan to deliver a video-based communication tool would help financial advisers better engage with clients who wanted a range of communication options to choose from.

Commenting on the integration, SuiteBox chief executive Ian Dunbar said, “By integrating SuiteBox into Xplan, we are delivering the next generation of digital engagement tools for financial advisers with a leader in financial advice technology.

“Busy professionals, such as financial advisers, do not want to be using disparate tools with multiple, stand-alone applications.

“SuiteBox brings together meeting, collaboration and transactional capabilities that seamlessly integrate with Xplan, creating an exceptional proposition for advisers and their clients.”
