Generate more realistic plans

Monthly cash flow in PlanLab let's you plan more realistically. Since people pay their bills each month, the software makes it easier for you to manage cash flow and locate sources of funding - another way the system helps you balance your clients' needs and desired lifestyles.

Streamline your planning, have more time with clients

When navigation is a breeze, you can devote more time to clients. Moving around in PlanLab is easy. And since intuitive features like our "event" architecture help you enter data in the natural way your clients talk, you can stop searching for dates and get out from behind the computer.

No more costly CD distributions

Web-based technology means distribution and updates require nothing of the advisor. New features and upgrades occur simultaneously firm wide.

Educate and motivate your clients

Powerful printed presentations allow your clients' needs to surface without "pushing." But product-neutral doesn't have to mean sales neutral. PlanLab printed presentations use graphics and text to educate and motivate clients. Plus, planning overviews allow them to get to the bottom line quickly. When clients see their needs communicated effectively, decisions come easily.

Generate, view "what ifs" side by side

Scenario Creation in PlanLab is designed to help you imagine possibilities for your clients without worrying that you'll mess up their current situation. Then, once you've tried out all your ideas, you can compare any of them side-by-side with Scenario Comparison.

Check planning progress at any stage

An instant snapshot of your clients' finances will help you check the success of their plan at any stage (including scenarios). Spot cash flow failures in years projected, along with the magnitude of the failures, and net worth into the future.

The best way to understand the benefits of the PlanLab is to see it in action. Those who do, usually become true believers. Sign up for a WebEx demonstration today by calling 704-549-1100 ext. 1.
