Pershing's client onboarding solution recognized for outstanding achievement in adaptive case management

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Pershing LLC, a BNY Mellon company, was named the winner in the Excellence in Client Management category in the Workflow Management Coalition’s (WfMC) 2014 Global Awards for Excellence in Case Management. The announcement was made at the BPM and Case Management Global Summit gala dinner, held June 17, in Washington, D.C. Pershing was recognized for its NetX360® task management solution.

The task management solution within Pershing’s NetX360® platform offers a high degree of flexibility and can be easily adapted as client onboarding processes, business requirements and regulations evolve. The task management tools allow Pershing and its clients to work collaboratively ensuring transparency and insight into the critical steps to onboard clients. The tools engage many internal departments, store documentation and the history all in a single, centralized location.

“This award is a testament to our team’s responsiveness and creativity and listening to our clients’ needs and their preferences for how they want to work.” said Regina DeGennaro, director of business process management solutions for Pershing. “This technology also helps us with client conversions; all of which have unique components to them. This tool has helped us to improve project delivery and communications across multiple departments. It is very gratifying to see the task management solution we developed deliver a more seamless experience for our clients, and we would like to thank the WfMC for this outstanding recognition.”

The new solution leverages document management from Albridge , an affiliate of Pershing, for task management imaging, providing web-accessible e-documents in easily searchable formats and allowing incoming paper documents to be scanned locally, quickly and easily. This has resulted in improved access to information and documentation across the firm; easier project management and administration; enhanced oversight and communication; improved quality and substantial savings in both time and resources.

Michelle Gutierrez, director of Pershing’s client engagement team added, “Task management is a valuable tool for Pershing’s clients. It enables broker-dealers and advisors to collect, organize, process and report on financial and non-financial tasks so they can manage their resources more effectively, streamline their business processes, create more efficient offices and improve their responsiveness to clients”.
