OMAHA, Neb., Dec. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Technology Tools for Today (T3) has released its latest T3 Technology Awards, and has named Orion Advisor Services, LLC ("Orion") the recipient of the Bleeding Edge Firm Award. The Bleeding Edge Firm Award recognizes a company that not only thinks outside the box, but also produces impressive results.
"There are many excellent providers of technology and services to the financial industry, but few who are as willing to invest in new ideas," said Joel Bruckenstein, President, Technology Tools for Today. "This culture of experimentation and research often leads to excellent results that benefit Orion clients, and the industry as a whole."
The past year saw Orion announce a number of new products and enhancements, with some of those achievements extending beyond its core software offering. In September, Orion introduced the Fuse conference for financial services software developers, where leading firms that integrate with Orion were invited to come together and strengthen their collaboration with each other during a weekend of writing code.
Orion also introduced a number of new products to help its advisors create their own online advisory channel. Engage extends reporting beyond print to give advisors the ability to overlay client-specific information like performance and portfolio values on video commentary. Discover gives advisors a simple new account opening tool that can be launched from their website. In the second half of the year, brand-new versions of the Orion mobile app and Client Portal were released to Orion's advisors.
"We are flattered to receive T3's Bleeding Edge Firm Award. We work hard to build solutions that will propel our advisors to where they need to be; not just now, but years from now as they seek to remain competitive and deliver better services to their clients," said Eric Clarke, President and CEO of Orion.
