David Gibson, Executive Vice President, nGenx: “Our partnership with Envision is an ideal combination of their knowledge of the RIA industry and the technologies the RIA needs to be successful, and our knowledge of the cloud."
Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
nGenx, a leading cloud services provider of hosted applications and desktops, announces Envision Consulting, a cloud consulting company, has selected nGenx as its cloud solutions partner. Earlier this year, the two companies signed a long-term agreement.
Envision Consulting recently launched an initiative, called Envision-RIA, that has created a cloud offering specifically tailored to the RIA (registered investment advisor) community. After spending years working for a large, Washington DC area RIA, Carlos Coutin, head of the initiative, identified that many RIA firms struggle to manage their own IT. “Working in the RIA industry, I saw that these companies were great at supporting clients, but individually most were too small to support the necessary IT staff needed to keep themselves cutting-edge,” said Carlos Coutin, Envision RIA Cofounder. “I have always been passionate about IT, and I knew that a cloud solution tailored to the needs of wealth managers could allow them to use technology as a catalyst for growth.”
So Why nGenx? RIAs typically work with a national brokerage house – TD Ameritrade, Charles Schwab, etc. – as their brokerage house “custodian.” One of the main values of working with a custodian is that it demonstrates trust and security to the customer. Envision chose nGenx to carry this same structure forward. “As we work with our clients, we will promote our relationship with nGenx as another layer of checks and balances for the safety of our clients’ data,” said Carlos Coutin. “When we set out to find a cloud services provider, we wanted a company whose knowledge of the cloud, cutting-edge technology and quality infrastructure would allow us to create the dynamic and highly secure cloud solution we have now developed for the RIA. nGenx was that company.”
nGenx is very excited to have Envision as part of its partner program. “The RIA industry is a perfect fit for the cloud. There are so many regulatory constraints in the financial consulting industry that, unless you are one of the major investment houses, you really don’t want to go it alone,” David Gibson, Executive Vice President of nGenx. “Our partnership with Envision is an ideal combination of their knowledge of the RIA industry and the technologies the RIA needs to be successful, and our knowledge of the cloud and our advanced systems and data centers.”
Founded in 2000, nGenx is a pioneer of “Desktop as a Service” (DaaS) and cloud-based application delivery. nGenx works with strategic partners such as Microsoft, Citrix and others to develop hosted IT applications provided via the cloud. Through its cutting-edge technology, nGenx enables organizations to access their business applications on any device, anywhere business may be conducted. nGenx markets its solutions through a robust, fully brandable white label program supported by its nGenx Control Panel, a single pane-of-glass provisioning system that allows white label partners and enterprise customers complete control over their IT environments.
