Orion Forges New Technology Partnership With Orchestrate

Integrated Services Between the two Technology Firms Will Bring New Efficiencies to Advisors

OMAHA, Neb. and DES MOINES, Iowa, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Orion Advisor Services, LLC ("Orion"), a premier portfolio accounting service provider, announced today that it has integrated services with Orchestrate, LLC ("Orchestrate"), the creator of ProcessComposer®, in a partnership to leverage both firms' technology built by advisors for advisors.

Both Orion and Orchestrate were originally created by investment advisory firms searching for technology solutions to better enable their respective firm's growth and service models.  In their quest to deliver their technologies to additional advisory firms, Orion and Orchestrate have embedded their technologies inside Salesforce's AppExchange, and have now entered into agreements to leverage each other's respective technologies.

Orion's integration with ProcessComposer provides advisors with dozens of ready-to-go workflows, streamlining repeatable tasks ranging from client meeting preparation to executing trades and rebalancing.  In addition, Foster Group Inc., the independent, fee-only advisory firm where Orchestrate originated, is currently implementing the Orion portfolio accounting system to support its portfolio accounting needs.

"Through each of these integrations, our firms have collectively pulled together the pieces of the technology puzzle that once created inefficiencies for advisors," said Travis Rychnovsky, Chief Executive Officer and President of Orchestrate. "The evolution of advisor-centric technology allows advisors to gain mutual efficiencies in order to better focus on the needs of clients, and these partnerships are a major stepping stone toward achieving that objective."

ProcessComposer, a Salesforce CRM product, is a robust workflow tool designed with the financial services industry in mind, and also serves a wide variety of other service-heavy industries. It is a smart engine designed to compose and execute even the most complex processes.

"Our advisors will immediately reap the benefits of integrating ProcessComposer into their workflows," said Eric Clarke, President of Orion.  "Our firms have taken paths similar to this partnership through a collective realization that the best technologies to help advisors are those created by advisors."

The partnership stems from two technology firms' shared philosophy that began as the IT operations of RIAs, which are now aligned to leverage their unique expertise and make practices scalable. Orion was started in 1999 to address the needs of its sister company, CLS Investments, LLC ("CLS"), a professional money management firm and SEC Registered Investment Adviser. CLS will be implementing ProcessComposer within the first few months of this year.
