Technology can be a great enabler, and when used effectively can massively increase productivity and efficiency in a business.

However, implementing new tech into a firm is a big commitment and can be a daunting challenge, particularly when advisers and support staff are working more remotely.

Dynamic Planner is built with advisers, for advisers. It’s intuitive and easy-to-use, with an onboarding and training programme that helps all new users to make the most of the full functionality of the system within a matter of weeks.

“Dynamic Planner is intuitive to use. We took on a new team member recently and in only two weeks, she was able to help me with annual reviews for clients. Straightforward for her and stress-free for me.”

Our onboarding process

Upon joining, all new users are allocated a named contact in our experienced Client Success team, who will provide a schedule of onboarding webinars. These sessions run each month, which breaks your implementation down into small, manageable objectives and means in just a few short weeks your entire firm can be fully up to speed with all of the main functionality in Dynamic Planner.

At the heart of Dynamic Planner is intuitive technology which is easy to use and learn. To aid you, short videos – mirroring where you are in the system – can be viewed at the click of a button, offering quick guidance, while longer video tutorials can be watched around the clock, on-demand to provide more detailed knowledge. Bespoke training sessions for your firm – delivered remotely by our Client Success team – are also available.
