“Simple and straightforward solutions make it easier for advisors, RIAs, broker-dealers and mutual funds to do their work and effectively engage their customers. Open platforms are required to standardize reporting forms and processes, deliver efficiency and consistency, and manage documents on an on-going basis. This is where Laser App has managed to lead the market,” said Tim Wallace, CEO, iPipeline. “By constructing a centralized library where content owners can store up-to-date forms and enabling data pre-fill from a variety of databases, Laser App has managed to fill in a technology gap to reduce Not-in-Good-Order (NiGO) submissions and speed transactions. We are extremely pleased about the acquisition, the new technology, and the potential to deliver increasing value across our collective customer base.”

“Today’s digital customers have little tolerance for paper-based processing and delays.Whether the transaction is for an annuity, insurance policy, or mutual fund, it needs to be completed electronically and quickly to meet the expectations of today’s consumer,” said Ed Beggs, CEO, Laser App. “iPipeline and Laser App share the common belief that we must dramatically improve how financial products are sold and serviced, and that innovation is the catalyst needed to accomplish this goal. Agents and advisors are demanding solutions to make their lives easier and those of their customers. iPipeline is ideally positioned to fill this need, and I am confident that Laser App’s complementary solutions and content will serve as strong technology assets.”
