  • Mobile Assistant's inclusion provides financial advisors an advanced, user friendly option for an efficient, accurate way to document critical client meeting information while keeping secure and compliant

Mobile Assistant, Inc., the fastest growing mobile dictation service designed for financial advisors, is pleased to announce its inclusion in the recently launched Vendor Affinity Program by LPL Financial LLC, the nation's largest independent broker-dealer*, a custodian for registered investment advisors (RIAs), and a wholly owned subsidiary of LPL Financial Holdings Inc. The program creates a centralized repository of vendors who have been reviewed by LPL and have agreed to provide their products and services to LPL advisors at discounted prices.

Mobile Assistant's superior dictation offering allows LPL advisors access to a HIPAA compliant framework that ensures client notes are processed, transcribed and stored in the most secure, confidential and compliant way possible.

The service leads the sector in speed, accuracy and usability through optimized mobile interfaces and unprecedented integration with the applications that make up the foundation of an advisor's firm such as Redtail CRM, Salesforce, Advisors Assistant and Ebix SmartOffice.

"We are thrilled to be selected as part of the initial roll out of LPL's Vendor Affinity Program," said Corey Westphal, President at Mobile Assistant. "Our inclusion provides LPL advisors access to what we think is the best the industry has to offer and adds immediate value to end users. In today's mobile world, the last thing you want to worry about is losing meeting details or thoughts because you don't have a reliable way to capture them. The professional accuracy and speed of our platform allows advisors to turn present thoughts into future action seamlessly so they can focus on their priority -- their clients."

Unlike other dictation services, all notes are stored on the Mobile Assistant app, available on both iOS and Android platforms, which includes a powerful search function for iPhone users, providing instant access to archived material. With its team of professional transcribers based in the United States, the quality and accuracy of the notes from Mobile Assistant empowers advisors with the confidence that words spoken are words preserved, without having to worry about inaccurate translation and clean up time of the notes.

"At LPL we remain committed to developing smarter and simpler ways to do business," said Dan Arnold, President, LPL. "The Vendor Affinity Program is a tangible way that LPL's scale can directly impact our clients' bottom line and further underscores the value in affiliation with LPL."

The dictation service that launched in 2008 now serves over 3000 financial advisors and has been capturing advisor market share from competitors at a steadily accelerating pace as word has spread about the more accurate and timely client meeting note solution. Mobile Assistant customers are charged on a monthly or annual subscription that includes 1000 lines of dictation per month which is about 100 minutes of dictation time.
