Intelledox fast tracks the digital transformation of the financial services processes for Dixon Advisory

Business Environment

Technology has brought disruption to every business sector and the Financial Services (FS) industry is no exception. The digital revolution has transformed how Banks and Financial Services providers do business and also how customers access financial products and services. It has become imperative for Financial Services organizations to develop solutions that can
better address customer needs by offering enhanced user-friendliness, accessibility, and design. To keep up with new industry standards and compliance regulation, organizations need to adapt their business processes to become agile and in line with the value proposition they offer.

Global financial institutions must comply with legislation, with regards to the construction and delivery of Statements of Advice (SOA) and Financial Services Guides (FSG). The documents must meet standards to satisfy specifications set by the government’s Securities and Investments Commission.

 

Business Challenge

Dixon Advisory operates in a highly regulated industry offering Financial Services such as Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSF) and stock broking and financial advice. The Australian Corporations Law requires that an adviser making investment recommendations must have reasonable grounds for making those recommendations.

Advisers need to use a detailed ‘Fact Finder’ form to conduct a compliant investigation to understand the financial objectives, situation and particular needs of the client.

In the past, clients had to manually fill a 10-page paper or editable PDF form every year. The questions were repetitive and included fields like name, phone number, address, assets, liabilities etc. and had to be filled from scratch. This was a time-consuming process that often frustrated clients. The earlier system saved client information on PDF files that were scanned and attached to the client file. This meant that the Financial Advisors could not extract data to have any high-level visibility of the client information aggregated over the years. It used to take close to one hour for advisors to look up client files and then give them access to view their file. These challenges made the system tedious, time-consuming and a difficult one to use.

 

The Infiniti Solution

After failing to succeed with a former Adobe partner using Adobe LiveCycle, Dixon Advisory selected Intelledox Infiniti to digitalize their financial services processes. Infiniti was chosen for its ability to handle the complex requirements around the number of assets.

Intelledox developed an Infiniti solution inclusive of an authenticated form that has successfully processed over 12,500 submissions, provides Dixon’s clients with an SSO login system and includes a two-stage workflow. The two-stage workflow enables clients to submit their information, which is then reviewed by the adviser who can add relevant information and then submit it for further processing.

The Intelledox Infiniti Solution integrates with existing databases and systems. It draws data from Sage CRM to prepopulate the ‘Fact Find’ form and pushes data into the SQL database through OLEDB connections.

The solution continues to save both Dixon Advisory and their clients countless hours who now fill the information online using a secure login. Both advisers and clients are able to view the ‘Fact Find’ information as and when required.

The system is currently used by 5000 clients and 150 staff from across investment advice and strategic teams. The highly scalable architecture of Infiniti has enabled the IT team to use it for two major base level recruitment drives a year – national program and a graduate program that sees close to 2500+ submissions. Additionally, the system is also used for a couple of in-house forms to collate data.
