JERSEY CITY, N.J., June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- iNautix (USA) LLC, an affiliate of Pershing LLC, a BNY Mellon company, announced today that it has developed the first end-to-end paperless imaging solution to streamline annuity processing for Pershing's introducing broker-dealer customers. This innovative solution, available on Pershing's Subscribe® platform, enhances efficiency, reduces cost and improves accuracy and compliance oversight of annuities by automating the current manual, time-intensive, paper-driven application process.

The paperless solution allows approved client documents, including any required carrier forms, to be sent electronically to the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) for their transmission to the carriers, in lieu of mailing or faxing paper documents. Electronically approved documents are then stored online in a regulatory-compliant format for the required number of years, and provide an online audit trail.

"Our Subscribe platform's streamlined, paperless annuity processing expands Pershing's comprehensive suite of document management and processing solutions," says Suresh Kumar, chief executive officer of iNautix USA. "By replacing obsolete paper systems with an automated process, Pershing's introducing broker-dealer customers can improve efficiency and benefit from workflow that helps them meet regulatory requirements for reviewing and processing annuity applications."

Pershing's Subscribe platform enables broker-dealers to process, service and maintain annuity contracts and offers an annuity order entry platform, consolidation of annuity contracts within client brokerage accounts and a comprehensive view of all client assets on a single screen. Subscribe is accessible through NetX360™, Pershing's revolutionary technology platform that provides investment professionals and registered investment advisors with a complete solution to help them efficiently manage their commission and fee business on a single, integrated workstation.
