CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct 2, 2001 — As the demand for personalized wealth management services continues to grow, financial services organizations are increasingly seeking to use technology to differentiate themselves from competition and deliver cost-effective Customer Relationship Management (CRM) across multiple channels. Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA) today announced the availability of its new wealth management product, PegaCRM Private Banking.


PegaCRM Private Banking software helps financial services organizations drive higher levels of client satisfaction and loyalty, reduce client acquisition and servicing costs, and decrease operational costs. Built specifically to address the needs of the wealth management market, PegaCRM Private Banking provides capabilities for contact management, due diligence and approval processing, business planning, and client history. PegaCRM Private Banking also helps organizations deliver an increasingly complex portfolio of products and services across multiple service channels. In addition, PegaCRM Private Banking's rapid integration with existing systems, as well as the ability to use rules to customize application behavior, can help organizations gain a competitive edge through faster implementations and easier access to both portfolio and order management systems, and core processing systems.

  • Provides relationship managers with a holistic customer view, enabling them to more effectively sell new products and services. Bridges silos of information and consolidates information from disparate back-end and third-party systems.

  • Streamlines collection and reporting of due diligence information for prospective clients.
