PROBLEM – Best CRM for financial advisors in Minneapolis
You may have just started your practice, or have been around for a while, but the problem is the same.
- You may have started with Salesforce—but it is not compliant with FINRA; or maybe you picked up Redtail – but it is a weak CRM
- You picked up QuickBooks for accounting
- Then subscribed to Constant Contact or Mail Chimp for marketing
- Tried Google Docs for document management (but again, it is not compliant)
- Or even subscribed to eMoney or Money Guide Pro for your financial planning
You’re all set – right? Unfortunately… no!
- You now have FIVE apps to learn. FIVE apps to integrate
- You also face the dreaded “double entry” (in fact worse) your data is in FIVE databases
- Then you realize you’re out of legal compliance with FINRA & HIPAA
- And the COST for ALL these apps is horrendous. What a mess!
How do other’s do this? They don’t… they ALL have problems. This stinks!
Perhaps you should consider…
