Hearsay Social Unveils New Mobile Apps for iPhone and Android

New Mobile Applications Make It Easy for Advisors to Leverage the New Predictive Social Suite From Anywhere, Anytime

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - March 27, 2015) - Hearsay Social, provider of the Predictive Social Suite for financial advisors and insurance agents, today announced the launch of new mobile applications for iPhone and Android. Further enhancing Hearsay Social's focus on social, web and mobile technology, these applications enable financial professionals to use the new Predictive Social Suite to compliantly engage with their clients and prospects via Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, and Hearsay Sites anytime from anywhere with their mobile device.

In 2014, 40% of cell phone owners accessed social networks from their phones and 28% do so on a typical day, according to Pew Research. Recognizing this trend, Hearsay Social launched new mobile apps to make it easier than ever for advisors, bankers, and wholesalers to manage their social media activity wherever they are, while remaining compliant with their firm's policies and industry regulations. With a few finger taps from the apps, financial professionals can publish posts from the Hearsay Social Content Library to their social networks, create original posts to share, view their scheduled post, as well as quickly email or text clients. With Social Signals, the mobile apps also alert advisors when key life events happen to people in their networks and make it easy for advisors to take action on relevant client information and notifications.

The new Hearsay Social iPhone and Android apps now provide the over 100,000 financial services professionals that have access to the Predictive Social Suite, with a native mobile experience.

"We are improving our mobile experience with an intuitive, native version of the Predictive Social Suite on iPhones and Android devices," said Steve Garrity, CTO and Founder of Hearsay Social. "We've streamlined the mobile experience by packaging the key activities advisors want on the go, such as publishing across channels, Social Signals alerts, and contact integration, in a simple app that financial professionals can easily use to engage their clients."

Here is what Hearsay Social customers are saying about the enhanced mobile apps:

"I am on my iPhone for calls and checking emails, about 90% of the time, so when Hearsay Social came out with a new app, I was ecstatic," said Jason Graham, Regional Marketing Director at Penn Mutual, "The app allows me to capture content more readily and post to my LinkedIn account at a moment's notice. The functionality is fantastic and it provides the speed that is needed to put material out there in the fast paced environment I work in. Kudos to Hearsay Social!"

"I like the Hearsay Social app. It does everything I need it to while I'm out of the office," said Rebecca Peduzzi, Operations Manager at The Boyer Agency, "what I find most valuable is the ability to push content to all social networks instantly."

"The app is great. I love that I have it at my fingertips and don't have to be on a computer to do what I need to do... I have already recommended the app to several people." - Amanda Isert, Associate Agent at Billy Hewes Insurance Agency

Hearsay Social customers can download the new Android app or the iPhone app and login with their existing company credentials.
