New Sapient Client Connect solution transforms how information is presented, distributed and consumed, streamlining workflow and enhancing client engagement
March 25, 2014 (Newswire) - Sapient Global Markets, a division of Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE), today announced Sapient Client Connect, a new asset manager solution for fund marketing and client service automation.
Client Connect builds upon Sapient Global Markets' extensive track record and reputation for delivering solutions to asset managers and reinforces its capabilities as a market leader in client experience design and data visualization.
Using Kurtosys' scalable, robust and secure cloud based data platform and portal technology, the Client Connect Solution will transform the way investment performance and client reporting is presented, distributed and consumed. It eliminates time spent on recurring, redundant, production activities and enables firms to focus on strategic issues and initiatives for attracting and retaining assets.
"We expect Client Connect, powered by Kurtosys to be transformative for our clients as they are challenged to deliver a premium experience while reducing cost and driving efficiency. Current approaches cannot satisfy client demand for immediate access to information, bespoke services and more tailored investment needs," said Randall Orbon, senior vice president at Sapient Global Markets. "With Client Connect, we can provide richer, more personalized, timely data and reporting that enhances the client relationship and enables firms to concentrate on their core objective of generating alpha."
The Client Connect solution provides asset managers with a variety of reporting, presentation and secure portal capabilities, alongside the ability to automate the generation and distribution of marketing material including Fund Fact Sheets and online fund information.
Kurtosys powers the Client Connect solution through its deep knowledge of the asset management sector, and its focus on data mobility and portal-based user experiences. As a cloud-based platform, it removes the need for on-site installation and can rapidly integrate with other platforms such as CRM. It also enables a faster time to market while reducing the cost of delivering new services and tools to investors.
"We are thrilled to welcome Sapient Global Markets as a strategic partner and investor," said Jeff Hendren, president of Kurtosys. "Sapient Global Markets brings a strong advisory business, best in class user experience, and tremendous technology depth. Together with our platform and Sapient Global Markets reach and capability we expect to do great work for clients."
