Advisors Access™ Launches vWise SmartPlan Enterprise; First Advisor Group to Offer the Interactive-Video System

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- vWise Inc. today announced that Advisors Access™, a turnkey 401(k) service program of BAM Advisor Services, LLC, has made vWise SmartPlan Enterprise an integral part of its participant experience by working with its third-party administrators to make the award-winning interactive-video system available to every sponsor plan in its network.

"Our advisors are always searching for ways to promote plan participation efficiently and affordably. As an Internet-based solution, SmartPlan Enterprise is powerful technology that will help our advisors educate and engage employees at their sponsor companies more effectively. And it's a great way for us to differentiate our offering," remarked Scott Pritchard, Managing Director of Advisors Access.

About SmartPlan Enterprise

Designed to help average investors better understand their retirement plans, SmartPlan Enterprise provides the benefits of a personal financial professional in a website available 24/7/365. By combining a video-based presentation of detailed financial information with an interactive application that prompts users to make informed investment decisions, SmartPlan Enterprise can help increase plan enrollment, raise participant contribution levels, and reduce support costs.

The SmartPlan Enterprise participant environment features a familiar interface that makes it easy to navigate, even for novice users, and allows a participant to go at his or her own pace. Our video hosts offer a brief video overview of 401(k) basics, followed by a discussion of selected features, such as auto-enrollment, matching contributions, and loans. Then, using simple interactive forms, our video hosts then guide participants through a short process, including individual retirement needs and risk profile surveys, and selection of investment types and contribution amounts, that generates a personalized investor profile. The SmartPlan Enterprise system is integrated with a provider's participant database, to deliver a custom experience and allow upload of participant choices.
