How Teracloud is helping Pulse360 revolutionize wealth management 

Pulse360 was founded to disrupt the way Financial advisors work today. The company is rapidly growing so they needed an AWS Consulting Partner to review what they built so far to be able to grow efficiently taking advantage of the pay-as-you-go cloud model. Teracloud proposed an entirely new infrastructure based on a well-architected framework to set the right technology base.

About Pulse360

Pulse360 is a newly-launched software that offers advisors a direct way to create consistent customized, perfectly written meeting documentation - in a fraction of the time.

Pulse360 Challenges

With increasing competition, labor costs, new fiduciary regulations, and long training cycles, financial advisors are struggling to keep up, let alone grow. Automated investing (aka Robo Advisors) are lowering fees by 80% and competing with financial advisors. Archaic technology is not keeping pace with the way advisors work. Pulse360 all-in-one workflow software will help financial advisors differentiate and deliver their advice at scale and in a fraction of the time. It will keep them compliant. And best of all, junior staff can now do the work –allowing senior staff to focus on growth activities.

 Due the nature of wealth management industry security is a top priority, on top of that Pulse360 needed to know where they were standing regarding industry best practices before their new platform goes to production public/use.Pulse360 wanted to have an experienced AWS partner with a strong background in Security to review their infrastructure and help to build secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for their applications and workloads.

Why Teracloud

Teracloud’s knowledge of security and also the experience in helping all kinds of startups to scale their business in a healthy and efficient way was crucial in their decision.

 

Teracloud’s Certified AWS Engineers conducted a comprehensive review of the organization’s existing AWS environment.

  • Teracloud’s team has vast experience in security compliances and good practices.

  • APN partner with certified resources
