NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2014 / — Client relationships can be complex, managing them doesn’t have to be. Wealthbox CRM announced today that it is ushering in a new era of customer relationship management (CRM) for financial advisors. The clunky complexity of a traditional CRM has been stripped and replaced with a simplified interface design that elevates usability and the social aspect of CRM for advisors. Web-based Wealthbox CRM highlights a social “activity stream” that allows advisors to collaborate internally with their staff and monitor external client and prospect activity coming from social networks and integrated financial apps.
