RetireUp Acquires RepPro, Creating a Powerhouse Digital Retirement Planning Solution

Envestnet | Tamarac Enhances Document Vault

Sharing documents with clients just got a little easier for advisors using the Envestnet | Tamarac platform, as the comprehensive technology solution for advisers just released an enhanced document vault and file storage system.
Previously, advisers using Envestnet | Tamarac had to turn to third party vendors for file sharing solutions, which meant managing two different systems and some decreased efficiency. The enhanced document vault includes support for uploading files in batches, document previews right in the web browser, secure access to the vault via mobile app, and more.

New Calendly Chrome Extension

Are you tired of playing email battleship with clients when scheduling meetings? Online scheduling software Calendly just announced a new extension for the Chrome web browser, allowing Calendly users to easily copy their meeting event links from the sidebar, quickly propose meeting times for an ad hoc meeting, and manually override existing calendar events to book a high priority meeting. The new Chrome extension works best with Gmail and G Suite account, but some of the features also do work with Office 365 and Outlook.com accounts

RetireUp Acquires RepPro

And in retirement planning software news, RetireUp just announced that company is acquiring RepPro, a form automation platform that supports forms for a variety of annuity carriers as well as custodians like TD Ameritrade and Fidelity. The two companies will operate under the RetireUp brand and will be headquartered in Chicago, providing advisors a single solution to generate retirement plans for clients as well as streamline the form creation process to bring the plans to life. Here’s RetireUp President Michael Roth on the RepPro acquisition.

When we were introduced to RepPro, there was an automatic synergy between the functionality of the two platforms as well as the mission both companies shared of making retirement planning more accessible for people and more profitable to advisors. We’re incredibly proud about this partnership and believe that RepPro’s best-in-class software will continue to improve the workflow at every stage of an advisor’s planning process.
