    NEEDS

    Helps advisors to define specific risks to their clients’ financial security in the event of a known or anticipated life event. The intuitive process allows clients to clearly articulate their financial goals, and to identify all available resources. Advisors can easily move clients towards the purchase of appropriate insurance or wealth products to meet the need upon highlighting any shortfalls.

    CONCEPTS

    Provides the advisor with tools to illustrate the use of financial products to generate and protect personal and business wealth. Concepts paint a picture for the client of a financial problem or opportunity, which they may not realize they have. The individual modules within OPUS CONCEPTS produce and compare multiple solutions to these financial situations thus enabling the advisor to easily recommend which product option best fits the clients’ circumstance.

    ILLUSTRATIONS

    Is a flexible and intuitive quoting system that is capable of illustrating all life, health and wealth products. Compliant, easy-to read reports can be displayed, e-mailed or printed for client review. Data moves seamlessly throughout the system eliminating the need to re-enter information that has already been captured elsewhere. OPUS ILLUSTRATIONS pushes the relevant data to E-Forms so that electronic application forms can be accurately generated and electronically transmitted straight through to carrier head office.

    E-FORMS

    Makes manual processing a thing of the past. With the seamless integration of data from other modules in OPUS, pre-populated electronic forms are quickly and easily completed for client signature. With intelligent questioning logic built into the software, advisors can walk their clients through the completion of any form. Once completed, an electronic signature can be captured. The form can then be submitted to the distributor and carrier instantaneously with greatly reduced chances for errors in processing. No paper. No couriers. No re-entry of data.
