Financial Planning Software Experts at Money Guide Pro Select Fox Financial Planning Network To Develop Integrated Workflow System

Financial plans will be created more efficiently thanks to Fox's custom workflows

SAN DIEGO and POWHATAN, Va., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — PIEtech, maker of Money Guide Pro (MGP), the leading financial planning software for financial advisors, officially announced today the selection of Fox Financial Planning Network (FFPN) to develop a custom workflow system to enable MGP subscribers to create financial plans more efficiently as well as to drive adoption of recently added valuable features.

"We have heard advisors in the industry asking for a more streamlined approach to simplify the creation of a financial plan," said Chad Blythe, National Sales Director of MGP.  "Partnering with FFPN to create efficient, end-to-end, intuitive workflows will go a long way toward fulfilling this request so advisors can spend more time on client relationships and growing their businesses."

The FFPN custom workflow system for MGP will be designed so that workflows can be embedded into any CRM system that has a workflow engine, such as Redtail Technology, to create a standardized, sequential process for creating a financial plan. Unlike many of the current workflow tools currently available, the FFPN workflows will be written by roles to include both advisors and administrative staff to streamline a majority of the financial plan development, presentation and follow up process.

"We specialize in taking a task and breaking it down into steps that makes it possible to complete more accurately with less effort and in less time," said Deborah Fox, CEO and Founder of FFPN. "The customized workflow system we are developing for MGP will be the industry's first set of highly detailed procedures for optimizing the use of financial planning software in an advisory firm."

"We've invested many years into developing the tools, templates and technology to automate client service workflows based on the approach we use daily in my own advisory firm," said Fox.  "Combined with the work we are doing with the over 300 advisor members of FFPN and we believe we have the most comprehensive and usable workflow system available in the industry today."
