Independent Advisors Still Lag When It Comes To Consumer Relationship Management Software Usage Hot

For one thing, the simple fact that 75% of the industry is now using customer relationship management software -- even if it's a solution as vestigial as using Outlook's contacts -- is striking.

 

Gone are the days when most advisors were a low-tech bunch, it seems.

 

But not all industry channels are created equal where CRM is concerned, apparently. Only 23% of wirehouse brokers either don't have or don't want to use any CRM system, but that percentage jumps to 36% of the self-clearing independent brokers and a full 39% of RIAs.

 

Do advisors at smaller firms simply not need high-tech software? Or do they find it harder to justify the expense?

 

The Aite Group wants all advisors to use some version of this type of software -- they even find it essential on a "now, more than ever" basis.

 

They like Salesforce and Redtail for smaller advisors, or Microsoft and NexJ for the big guys.
