Fluent’s UtopiaAdvisor Brings Interactive Plan and Investment SaaS Solutions Together for DC Advisors and Relationship Managers

MARCH 20, 2017 – LAS VEGAS –Today at the 16th Annual NAPA (401)k Summit, Fluent Technologies formally announced the launch of the industry’s first and only interactive and integrated plan and investment review solution. UtopiaAdvisor is a business-practice software providing an executive dashboard of plan review applications for an advisor’s entire book of business. UtopiaAdvisor offers a one-stop-shop for plan specialist practices, providing efficiency solutions to save time and money and transform meeting presentation practices that ensure meaningful outcomes. With UtopiaAdvisor, plan specialists can lead meetings and be more helpful to sponsors, all the while practicing within compliance of policies and regulations.

“Years of research, industry knowledge, survey results, one-on-one interviews and participation in critical industry-sponsored DOL focused seminars have led us to this moment,” commented Fluent President Michael Zimmer. “Multiple tools and antiquated manual systems, and relying on paper and PowerPoint, are now a thing of the past. We’ve simplified plan and investment client documentation, reporting, and reviews into one user-friendly interface for advisors to always have what they need at their fingertips.”

UtopiaAdvisor allows users to move from passive reporting of inflexible, obsolete information to actively providing meaningful information that measures success and supports solid decisions. Each tool makes real-time calls to a single source of aggregated plan and investment information. These calls put data at the advisor’s fingertips, allowing them to create a message that is understandable and meaningful to the sponsor. Fluent’s arsenal of tools allows advisors to dynamically evaluate and present plan metrics, and then deliver a comprehensive document, reflecting any discussions so that decisive action may be taken.

UtopiaAdvisor Benefits:

Improve plan and investment monitoring, account retention and new business practices by more than the traditional service, quality and price measures:

  • The difference between UtopiaAdvisor and other solutions on the market is that Fluent focuses on plan outcomes by integrating participant and investment data and statistics, not just investment returns. It is perfect for client review practices with invaluable dynamic plan evaluation, advisor leadership tools and client decision-making solutions.

    In addition, UtopiaAdvisor’s unique and unprecedented documentation toolkit allows the capture of notes and critical comments anywhere at any time: it follows the advisor from app to app, recording changes and capturing evidence of research in the background. Suggested fund and service recommendations and history and archives can be maintained for as long as the practice determines necessary. As a SaaS solution, all advisors need is a mobile device, access to the internet, and licensing, which Fluent makes easy to obtain.

    UtopiaAdvisor is available as a cloud-based application with best-practice workflows ready to deploy, post data integration and set up. Today’s version launch is intended for plan providers, broker dealers and large RIA firms that want to extend best-practice tools to the captive and advisor network client-facing teams. The underlying technology services are engineered to support business, IT and web team initiatives to improve data workflows that support plan and advisor portals. Fluent has proven service and consulting teams with over 20 years of experience for large firms who are seeking a customized configuration of services and licensing agreements with all the features and benefits of UtopiaAdvisor. Fluent strives to make implementations and integrations easy.

    • For advisors, UtopiaAdvisor gives access to the essential tools to evaluate and report on investment and plan success measures – anywhere, any time – with information that can be visualized, analyzed, and shared. Ask your recordkeepers, broker dealer or RIA firm to integrate UtopiaAdvisor, so you can be a more effective plan advisor.
    • For record keepers, custody platform, broker dealers or large RIA firms, UtopiaAdvisor will arm your relationship management, captive sales team and advisor network with the resources they require to grow their plan business on your platform and enhance plan retention and plan growth strategies.

    UtopiaAdvisor is being demonstrated on the floor of NAPA’s 401k summit this week and Fluent is ready to work on agreements and contracts to integrate this technology with your advisor solutions and services and plan sponsor portals.
