Tell me about the key features of your product or service?
Chris: Our collaborative digital vault helps financial service businesses securely organize, store, and share their client’s’ information, all in one place. With the ability to dynamically manage and securely share personal, legal, financial and medical information, clients are empowered to expand and control information sharing with their trusted advisors, and with their loved ones as well as, across generations.
LifeSite Pro helps clients share their documentation simply and efficiently. We help professionals like wealth managers, insurance agents, and accounting firms streamline their client interactions to provide superior service. Advisors can receive alerts or messages on their clients’ vault activity, enabling them to follow up promptly and assist in filling in any potential gaps in records. The ability to see exactly when a client has viewed or updated a section allows them to keep abreast of client activity and offer help when it’s needed.
What makes your product or service so innovative, and what are the hot button issues it addresses for companies?
Chris: Not only are we helping families by providing secure and organized document storage, with our introduction of LifeSite Pro we are helping businesses collaborate with their clients. With changing regulations, advisors need solutions to help enhance client engagement and streamline the exchange of information. We are excited to be addressing a hot-button issue for them! Businesses can provide LifeSite Pro to clients and their families, which helps deepen engagement; if you don’t know your clients, you can’t give great advice.
At LifeSite we use the highest level of encryption during transmission and storage, and industry-leading security protocols and access, so information entered into LifeSite Pro is actually more secure than paper records. Clients can simply and securely input and update information across a broad array of categories and designate access when ready. Advisors can also enter important policy or financial information, filling the vault with details on behalf of clients and their families. Advisors today are looking for new and innovative ways to expand their businesses. Leveraging the security and family collaboration features of our LifeSite Pro product not only helps advisors but families overall – connecting their heads to their hearts, which has always been our mission from day one.
