Client-facing employees in highly regulated companies around the world now have access to business processing services that were once the sole purview of their operations and technology teams. XTRAC® Solutions, the independently operated Fidelity Investments® company that provides workflow and document management services, has been integrated with the Salesforce1 Customer Platform to streamline day-to-day operations for highly regulated companies and arm employees with the information they need to better serve their clients.
Employees of firms that use both Salesforce and XTRAC now have access to a new app to create, view and interact with work and documents from directly inside Salesforce. This integration creates a more efficient and seamless process for managing the most critical work items. According to a study from Forrester Research, 58 percent of U.S.-based contact centers said that increasing efficiency is one of their top three priorities.
“Firms can connect their front and back-office like never before,” said Dan Brownell, president and CEO of XTRAC Solutions. “In most firms, the front-office client service managers and the back-office operations teams must rely on each other for any information they need – often via inefficient communication methods such as email and telephone. Now they can make their workflows more efficient so that they can spend more time serving the end-client and growing their business.”
After more than 20 years managing business processes for Fidelity Investments, supporting the company’s interactions with millions of clients each day, XTRAC has developed sophisticated tools and workflow processes that are now used by more than 75 companies globally. The new app gives Salesforce users access to these workflows to greatly improve service delivery and operational efficiency.
With the XTRAC App, client information already in Salesforce is automatically prefilled into a new XTRAC work item or document, with no need to re-key the information. Most importantly, employees are now better equipped to respond to clients quickly when questions arise about the status of a new client account or work in process. Additionally, documents such as the account applications and correspondence involved in a new client onboarding are stored in XTRAC’s compliance-facilitated and highly secure environment.
“Companies are looking to transform the way they connect with customers, partners and employees to thrive in today’s connected world,” said Ron Huddleston, senior vice president, ISV & Channel, salesforce.com. “By leveraging the power of the Salesforce1 Customer Platform, Fidelity’s XTRAC provides customers with the proven social, mobile and connected cloud technologies to accelerate business success.”
“We are constantly searching for the most innovative ways to provide our clients with access to the tools that can transform how their employees work,” said Brownell. “Everything that client-facing employees need is in Salesforce. The potential time savings, increased efficiency and control are enormous.”

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
