SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2014) - Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADVS), a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, today announced a new agreement to deepen the integration of its Black Diamond platform and other Advent products with Veo®, TD Ameritrade, Inc.'s powerful account management and trading platform.
The new agreement will build on Advent's existing relationship with TD Ameritrade, Inc. and will be focused on enhancing the experience for their more than 600 shared clients. The integrations between the Black Diamond platform and other Advent products and Veo® will allow for greater automation around specific workflows and data across the platforms, including intraday quotes, service alerts, real time balances and position data, as well as management fee and rebalancing workflows. These efficiencies will help advisors and operations personnel make more informed decisions, respond to client requests more quickly, and strengthen client relationships.
"With more than 600 shared clients, we are looking forward to being able to provide an even better experience for our clients by expanding our longstanding relationship with TD Ameritrade, Inc.," said Dave Welling, SVP and General Manager, Black Diamond. "Advent believes in open architecture and deep integration between our platforms, custodians, and other third party technologies. We understand the importance of collaborating with other key technology providers to empower advisors, so we are very excited about this collaboration with TD Ameritrade, Inc. and the benefits it will offer our mutual clients."
"We are excited to provide enhanced access to Veo® through Advent Software's leading portfolio management and reporting platforms," said Jon Patullo, Managing Director, Technology Product Management at TD Ameritrade Institutional. "The Veo® platform's open access capabilities in combination with Advent's flexible platforms will allow the hundreds of clients we share to operate more efficiently and provide a more scalable foundation needed to grow their businesses."
