The Eton Team continues to grow! We would like to introduce you to the newest member of our Leadership Team, Florian Fischer.
Florian joined as Vice President of Product Management – Reporting. Florian has more than 10+ years of experience developing B2B enterprise software solutions across the financial services, legal, and transportation industries. He has built out and managed product management teams at listed companies and privately held start-ups.
Most recently, Florian was Chief Product Officer at Pageant Media, where he was responsible for developing a content and database platform and API solution for investors and managers in asset classes such as hedge funds, real estate, and private debt.
We are committed to engaging with and learning from leaders in the family office industry. To further that goal, we will be attending the Family Office Exchange (FOX) Forum in October, where Rob Mallernee will be speaking on a panel discussing “Intelligent Family Offices: Changing Our Way of Thinking and Operating.” We are looking forward to discussing with family members and office executives how other families have transitioned into the family office of the future.
If you have not visited our website lately, check out our new look. We gave the site a complete makeover to provide an easy-to-navigate user experience that answers all your questions about family offices and the software used to support their operations. Our expanded “Insights” section features industry white papers in addition to updates about Eton Solutions and our team. And we have included more details about the features of our integrated platform, AtlasFive®, so you can see firsthand how it can help transform your family office so you can achieve more.
Our team is always interested in learning ways that AtlasFive adds value to your business. One client, a large MFO, saw firsthand how AtlasFive can immediately catch errors that would otherwise go unnoticed for weeks (or longer). The office was using AtlasFive when a custodian entered a wrong digit for a capital call transaction and sent the wrong amount. The custodian processed it without catching the mistake — but AtlasFive flagged the error twice in the client’s exception reports. The family office had the fund manager return the surplus amount when they saw the exception report. This family office executes a high volume of transactions, and without AtlasFive’s prompt flagging of the mistake, it could have gone unnoticed.
One of the primary reasons we developed the AtlasFive platform was so that employees in family offices can spend more time focused on providing value-added services to their clients. When you can rest assured knowing that routine tasks will be automatically handled and data entry errors will be flagged immediately, you can direct your attention to long-term planning and client success: a family office focused on the future.
We are delighted to announce the launch of AtlasFive R44. This latest version of our software includes significant functionality and performance improvements that will allow you to get your job done with even greater efficiency and productivity than ever before. In addition, the new version of the software can be rolled out on a timeline that suits you and your business, putting you in control of internal change management. Talk to your Eton representative about the optimal time to upgrade to R44.
The improvements are wide-ranging, but here are just a few:
- AtlasFive R44 boasts a state-of-the-art transaction processing/BillPay module that allows you to enter transactions faster and with greater flexibility and significantly reduces set-up time for new vendors.
- Our “entity visibility” feature provides you with a much more granular level of control over what users can and cannot see within the system.
- And our purpose-built Reg 9 workflow module provides those clients that need it an easy-to-use, wizard-driven solution that ensures regulatory compliance in a simple, time-saving and auditable manner, leveraging the data already in the system.
And there is so much more on the horizon that we look forward to sharing with you!
