Finaplex OnDemand is a hosted, web-based, client relationship and portfolio management application for financial advisors. The service is based on Finaplex's enterprise software offering, called Finaplex Wealth(R), which has been successfully deployed in the wealth management industry for the past three years.

This offering was designed to be delivered as a service that can manage the full range of needs of the wealth management industry, from the desk of the independent registered investment advisor, to the largest Wall Street firms managing millions of accounts. Finaplex OnDemand is designed to scale as a firm's wealth management business grows. "Finaplex will now offer the benefits of our integrated WRM desktop to a wider range of firms, including smaller firms that may not want to customize our enterprise application software and host it themselves," said President and CEO Pete Tierney. "Finaplex OnDemand allows firms to concentrate on what they do best -- provide financial advice and portfolio management -- without having to purchase, integrate, and manage several different software packages."
Finaplex OnDemand has been shipped to beta installations, including a regional bank specializing in private client services. General availability is planned for the Fall. John Foley, Finaplex's Director of Product Marketing, says, "We believe that Finaplex OnDemand is just what wealth managers need to win more business, provide better service, and manage their accounts more effectively."
