ARBES GOES LIVE ON STATE OF THE ART INTERFACE FOR ONLINE SALE OF PIONEER INVESTMENTS INVESTMENT PRODUCTS

ARBES Technologies, the prominent Czech developer and supplier of information systems for banking and finance, has developed and implemented a comprehensive online solution for the sale of products from the investment group Pioneer Investments for the Czech, Slovak and Bulgarian market. The application was launched into live operations in March 2015.

The solution supplied by ARBES Technologies is based on modern portal technologies that ARBES implements into the Internet application. State of the art responsive design, which allows for use on a variety of mobile devices, offers Pioneer easier and more efficient use and servicing of the entire Pioneer Investment mediator network in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Bulgaria. The major benefit of the application is without a doubt the newly implemented solution for the acquisition of new clients, so-called shareholders, as well as the solution for the sale of new products and support of sales thanks to the variety of investment calculators, overviews and intuitive performance graphs.

The project specifications submitted by Pioneer Investment also included a request for the support of paperless business, in particular at the stage of signing the contractual documents. The new solution supplied by ARBES Technologies therefore allows for the electronic signing of the individual contract, instructions and investment questionnaires online in real time, thus facilitating the subsequent process of controlling and record-keeping on the part of back-office.

According to a statement of the COO of Pioneer Investment for the CEE region, Vendulka Klučková, the newly implemented solution supplied by ARBES Technologies will not only result in significant cost cuts, but it will also ensure more flexible communication between the distribution networks and Pioneer.

“ARBES Technologies is the long-term supplier of the ARBES TOPAS, ARBES TA and ARBES FEIS solutions, which form the backbone of the solutions for the business activities of Pioneer Investments. It is, therefore, only logical that the new user-friendly application offers the group a state of the art, advanced and paperless solution, which goes hand in hand with the trends of the current needs of the so-called digital market,” said Jan Denemark, the CEO of ARBES Technologies.
