New partnership between Ipswich-based software house and renowned compliance expert will help financial services boards leverage the benefits of investing in workflow technology.

Now more than ever, firms will be judged on how they manage their data…. with workflow technology, boards may easily produce better data for less and become more dynamic. Stephen Cooper, Hannaford Associates and Flovate Partner

How can financial services firms rise to the challenge of increased regulation? How can compliance officers easily produce better data for less? How can insurers, brokers and wealth management firms move beyond outdated systems and become more dynamic?

For over 20 years, compliance expert Stephen Cooper has been helping boards address these challenges. Today he signed with Ipswich-based software house, Flovate Workflow Technologies, to share his expertise.

The partnership, the first of its kind for Flovate, will create opportunities for the company to extend its footprint in the financial services sector, with clients that include global insurance brokerage The Willis Group.

About Stephen Cooper
Cooper is a highly experienced financial services practitioner with over 20 years’ service including at Board level. He will help management understand the benefits of investing in workflow solutions for commercial regulatory and audit purposes.

He comments:

“Now more than ever, firms will be judged on how they manage their data. From meeting the growing tide of EU directives to internal audit procedures, knowing how to accurately gather the information can be an onerous task.”

“Too many firms are stuck with circa 2005 IT systems that are so expensive and cumbersome that they’re no longer even a solution, but an obstruction.”

“With workflow, boards may easily produce better data for less and become more dynamic – without significant impact on the IT budget. In my view, a workflow solution such as Flovate's LEAP platform would be of intense interest to those struggling with the old-fashioned way of doing things and are looking for solutions.”

LEAP - turning ideas into execution

Using LEAP, scoping, executing and optimising the processes required to meet reporting needs is simple and cost-effective.

Flovate business analysts can quickly deliver an easy-to-use, online workflow management system accessible day or night.

A low-code platform, LEAP empowers firms to appreciate, originate and deliver process changes themselves, avoiding the need for costly IT and consultancy. Being cloud-based, LEAP offers all the benefits of online access, delivered quickly for a modest licence fee.

Stephen invites people to get in touch to discuss their challenges. This will be followed by a free business analysis by Flovate’s Sales Director, Sean Brownell.

Sean comments: “We know from our customers that meeting regulation is a real burden to business. Our complaints handling solutions for example have been very well received. I’m really looking forward to discussing how Flovate can deliver a competitive edge for financial services.”
