The upgrades, which are being phased in over the next few months, are being launched in partnership with Envisage Information Systems, LLC, according to a news release from the Utica, New York-based BPAS.
BPAS uses the SunGard OmniPlus daily valuation system, and has utilized the PDS web product (acquired by SunGard) since 1998. “By partnering with Envisage”, says Barry Kublin, President of BPAS, in the announcement, “we acquired robust adviser Web capabilities, enhanced analytical data for users, and most importantly, more control over the entire system to support the myriad of plan types we support.”
By offering rapid, secure, and bi-directional movement of data, the Enveritus suite allows BPAS to continue using its OmniPlus recordkeeping system, while the Web application communicates with Omni for all inquiries and transactions, the news release said.
“In addition to delivering a major aesthetic overhaul, the new site puts our clients and partners in a greater position of control than ever before, with features such as plan-level interactive messaging, book-of-business reporting, cross-plan searches, and research on recent transactions available at their fingertips,” said Paul Neveu, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, in the news release.
