Commonwealth’s Advisor Software, Client360°®, Turns 10

Waltham, MA (August 13, 2014)—Commonwealth Financial Network®, the nation’s largest privately held independent broker/dealer–RIA, celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the introduction of its total client management system, Client360°®.

Part of Commonwealth’s 360° suite of proprietary software tools, Client360° seamlessly integrates portfolio, trade/rebalancing, contact (CRM), document (imaging), and wealth management functions in a single intuitive platform, providing advisors with a truly comprehensive view of each client’s financial life.

“Industry-leading when it first rolled out in August 2004, Client360° has remained at the forefront,” said Darren Tedesco, managing principal of innovation and strategy at Commonwealth. “Over the past decade, we’ve refined and enhanced the platform based almost exclusively on ongoing feedback from our advisors. This tight feedback loop drives our entire community to be the best, including our software team. The changes we prioritize to improve advisors’ experience and make their business more efficient all stem from the simple act of listening to our clients. It’s something that a lot of businesses say, but very few do.” 

In July, J.D. Power ranked Commonwealth “Highest in Independent Advisor Satisfaction Among Financial Investment Firms,” four times in a row.* As a full-service broker/dealer, Commonwealth builds its technology and offers full support—from training to troubleshooting—six days a week. The firm’s dedicated Technology HelpDesk is staffed by Commonwealth employees in the Waltham, Massachusetts, and San Diego, California, offices to provide advisors with expert assistance.

In June, Commonwealth announced the release of the Client360° dashboard, a streamlined, efficient way for advisors to manage households, clients, and accounts in a single view.

Tedesco concluded, “Commonwealth hires the best and brightest technology staff, who are equally committed to customer service. This mix of talented people focused on our advisors’ needs is what sets Commonwealth technology products and services apart.” (See For the Eighth Time, Commonwealth Financial Network Named a Best Place to Work in Technology.)
