Charles Schwab Expands Mobile Offering for Advisors with New App for the iPad®

Extending its suite of mobile capabilities for advisors, Charles Schwab today announced that the new Schwab Advisor Center app for the iPad is available for download. Advisors will now be able to access key client data such as balances, positions, and transactions from their iPads. The new app is customized for the tablet format including large charts that offer insights into daily account movements and scrolling quotes that help advisors track the movements of the indices, stocks, and funds that are most important to them.

“Advisors have told us they’re using iPads to access key client information and custodian websites while away from their desks,” said Neesha Hathi, senior vice president of technology for Schwab Advisor Services. “It’s also becoming common for advisors to load reports and presentations on their iPads so they can use them in client meetings. We hope our new Schwab Advisor Center app for the iPad will help advisors become even more productive, and also assist them in delivering an enhanced client experience.”

Advisors can further customize the app by adding stock and mutual fund quotes to the ticker at the bottom of the screen. The new position charts give advisors a snapshot view of how an account’s equity or mutual fund’s positions are performing over the course of a day. They also show a graphical representation of both recent changes in the price of all positions in an account and relative size of the position. Pop-up details for account balances and history allow advisors to access the data they need all in one view.

Earlier this year, Schwab announced the launch of the advisor app for iPhone, which currently has nearly 4,000 downloads. The app allows advisors to view their clients’ account balances, positions and transactions, and they can easily tap into the real-time data they need from Schwab Advisor Center without having to be tied to their desks. The mobile apps are part of a broader effort to deliver Schwab Advisor Center data where and how advisors need it. Additionally, advisors’ clients who want on the go access to their accounts can use Schwab’s mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and Android, as well as Schwab’s mobile website to keep up with their accounts and to access features like Schwab Mobile Deposit.

“Our mobile offering is one of the backbones for enhancing how advisors and their clients interact with us and with each other,” Hathi added. “This will be a key and ongoing area of investment for us in 2013.”

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information.
