Their Needs:When proposing and reviewing fund investments to their clients, Ascensus pulls information from a variety of sources. They needed an application to automate the process of importing data and customizing it for presentation to their clients. They wanted an import process that would filter the fund list based on the type of client. Additionally, the source data occasionally changes, so the application needed to dynamically handle mapping of import fields to fields within the application.
The Solution:An Excel application was developed with interfaces for browsing to and selecting import file paths, mapping fields, selecting funds, confirming the approval status of funds, and reviewing selected funds. Furthermore, the import process allows the user to enter the parameters of a client so that it will automatically import a custom list of funds available for that client.
Key Client Benefits:Ascensus representatives save time in preparing proposals for their clients as well as be able to present the most up-to-date and accurate information on the fly.
