Beating Heart of the Wealth Management Enterprise
The road ahead consists of constant virtual collaboration. For many wealth managers, current digital workflows are acceptable but not exceptional. To change this, wealth managers look for strategic partnerships with document management capabilities to pave a path toward exceptional digitization.
Vendors innovate to meet digitization needs by expanding services and improving technology in each component along the document management value chain. Different innovations along the document management value chain include a diverse assortment of technologies. While certain technologies are more complex than others, underlying the nature of document management is defining, digitizing, and categorizing metadata inputs. While Appway, Docupace, Doxim, and Hyland provide different functions within the value chain, they are a good representation of leading document management vendors for wealth management firms. Profiles of each vendor are included in this report. Also explored are highlights on core products, capabilities, and cognitive technologies that each vendor offers.
