TORONTO, Ontario, October 18, 2011 – Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR) today announced the availability of the BR Mobile solution for financial advisors in Canada, as a new product offering for Canadian securities dealers using Broadridge’s Dataphile solution set.
This new solution from Broadridge creates a real-time mobile extension of the ProPhile® advisor desktop, allowing advisors using the most popular mobile devices to access their client information at any time and from any location. BR Mobile increases the advisors’ productivity while interacting with clients, allowing for mobile views of data such as account, client, and household level reports.
Clients’ real-time holdings can now be viewed on most smart devices by using BR Mobile, which gives advisors the flexibility to view security holdings, view transaction history, place mutual fund, equity and option orders, and view real-time trade information directly from their mobile devices. Additional benefits of this new mobile interface include viewing/emailing desktop reports, links to online pricing and research, links to online location services, and device-specific contact services.
Over the next year, Broadridge will be adding account opening functionality to further increase advisor productivity and improve the overall client experience.
