Our client is one of Canada’s largest Financial Services companies and has been in business for over 50 years with more than $65 Billion dollars in assets. They offer investment funds as well as ETFs, employ over 900 employees across Canada and service approximately 40,000 Financial Advisors and 1.1 Million client accounts.
The client was seeking a means to easily create custom Advisor Sales kits in a cost- effective way, consisting of corporate compliance approved presentations, static marketing materials, and/or custom user created documents. The solution would relieve their sales teams of ordering their own items, printing materials themselves or with a retail printer, and assembling kits manually in their office as well as drastically reduce internal employee effort to facilitate distribution to their Advisor client base. They were looking for an outsource partner that would allow their Sales teams to focus on just that, Sales.
“DOX enables Sales teams to focus on Advisor Engagement rather than fulfillment activities.”
— Doug DeVries,
Relationship Manager, InvestorCOM
Users can easily select and include desired marketing materials in a kit and send to Advisors. Items are searched by their category or name and pieces placed in folder pockets in the desired order. Kit components are saved, customizable to suit each recipient(s) and can be sent physically or electronically. Once a kit is created it takes only a few seconds to order a “my Custom Kit” in the future.
Users can easily upload corporate templates or their own custom presentations to accompany marketing materials in the kit. All aspects of “My Items” including print and finishing options are easily configurable by the user.
Upon checkout, the “Mailing” function is leveraged enabling a “drag and drop” feature to upload personalized letters and accompanying addresses for pairing with materials. Users can execute a cost effective outsourced sales campaign without the use of internal resources.
InvestorCOM worked with the client to develop an education and awareness campaign influencing behavior of the Sales Teams to increase uptake and realize benefits.
Since leveraging the solution our client has realized significant savings around manual effort as well as the opportunity cost of directing sales resources towards creating and managing mailings. Overall time and effort by the sales teams was reduced by approximately 30% or almost 3 full-time equivalents annually, allowing these resources to focus on Advisor engagement and business development as opposed to administrative functions.
