Fact Find

Paper-based forms and processes belong with the coronavirus - in the past.

The Collect feature enables financial planning teams to send a digital fact find form to clients which they can access and complete via their web browser.

The data entered by the client into the online fact find form will then automatically populate other documents in a Series like file notes, advice proposals and advice documents themselves, removing endless amounts of data entry from your advice process.
Manage your practice with insights

Compliance Reporting

The Insights feature empowers Compliance Managers and Practice Principals to report on all the data in every document produced in Nod.

Report on key risk indicators, document quality and the consistency of key data in the entire client file.

Stop sampling a small amount of advice documents and report on everything.

Stop paying for huge teams of people to read Word documents and redeploy those resources into more productive roles.

Efficiency Reporting

Get realtime data, down to the second, on how long things take to get done in your financial planning practice.

The only way to create better processes is to know where the bottlenecks are. The Insights feature allows you to measure things like active time per document, process cycle time and break this data down by document type and team member.

Great for high performing paraplanning teams both internal and outsourced to identify areas to create more efficiencies.

Impact Reporting

Financial planners can better tell the story of the positive impact they have on their clients using the data contained in their advice documents.

Using the Insights feature, report on metrics like how much you've saved your client in fees, how much you've increase overall insurance coverage, assets under management and more.

Create beautiful graphs that you can use in marketing materials and social media posts.
