PensionPro and Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory US join forces to change the technology landscape for third party administrators

ftwilliam.com and PensionPro product partnership enables retirement services firms to fully integrate daily workflow with required retirement plan processes and oversight.

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory US and PensionPro Software announced today that they are partnering on a unique and cutting-edge solution that will help third party administrators (TPAs) streamline and optimize their retirement plan activities. The solution combines the robust intelligence of Wolters Kluwer's ftwilliam.com web-based government forms, plan document and compliance software and PensionPro's advanced workflow and business operations software. Used together, they will drive efficiencies that will enable TPAs to push their businesses to a next level of growth while meeting the needs of their customers in very meaningful ways.

"Through our ftwilliam.com product, we provide our customers the intelligence to understand what must take place from a compliance and regulatory perspective at any given point in time," explains Executive Director, Dom Cervi. "This powerful knowledge is supported by easy, integrated access to all forms and filing software that ensures TPAs stay efficient as well as compliant. Our partnership with PensionPro now enables us to combine these strengths with streamlined workflow and process capabilities that will offer TPAs tremendous time and cost savings across all aspects of their retirement plan processes. In addition, subscribers will have the peace of mind gained from access to our collective industry expertise. It is yet another way we are pushing the envelope to drive confident outcomes for our customers."

The combined solution 'hooks' ftwilliam.com's intelligence and forms with PensionPro Software's workflow tools, offering the following benefits:

  • Reduced business risk through auto completion of processes with API hooks in compliance, document and forms software.
  • Confident, proactive knowledge of deadlines and deliverables to help ensure advance notice and preparatory time.
  • Use of connected data to identify plans affected by regulatory changes.
  • Ability to quickly identify affected clients and send them relevant and timely information.
  • Ability to efficiently navigate and sort data through a user-friendly and intuitive interface, with manager controls and real time status reporting.

By adding greater control, efficiency and intelligence to workflow, the comprehensive solution allows TPAs to focus attention on business building and customer service. In order to take advantage of the solution, TPAs must be subscribers to both Wolters Kluwer's ftwilliam.com product and PensionPro Software.

“The retirement plan industry has functioned for far too long without efficient access to important client data," explains Renee Conner, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of PensionPro. "The integration with ftwilliam.com is in keeping with PensionPro's founding philosophy and steadfast commitment to continue to open data and help our clients use that data to its full potential. Working together, we will create a unique competitive advantage for retirement services firms in a crowded marketplace."
