Distribution Technology, the UK's leading provider of financial planning and sales technology and Atos Consulting, the business consulting arm of international IT services company, Atos Origin, announced a partnership in which Atos Consulting will be an implementation partner of DT's enterprise solutions to financial services clients in the UK.
This collaboration provides a unique solution for advice-based sales in the UK, combining market leading technology from Distribution Technology with Atos Consulting's specialist change management capability, to ensure that any implementation meets the expectations of all stakeholders.
Atos Consulting, which has experience in enterprise technology deployments in many of Europe's largest financial institutions, will provide change management, training and organisational design services to support implementations for large scale insurance and bancassurance salesforces. This will ensure faster realisation of business benefits, establish consistent sales management processes across the organisation and shift organisational culture from sales person to professional advisor.
Distribution Technology's market leading, web-based planning and sales applications such as Dynamic Point of Sale allow large financial services organisations greater management control and productivity of salesforces as well as seamless integration with existing IT infrastructures.
Ben Goss CEO of Distribution Technology said "Working with Atos Origin in this way will enable our clients to gain the best of both worlds, market leading technology from Distribution Technology alongside the impressive change management and sales force training resources offered by Atos Origin consultants. Clearly any technology is only as successful as its implementation and adoption, and Atos Origin have impressive credentials in this area"
Peter Richardson, Head of Financial Services at Atos Consulting said, "Distribution Technology has a well deserved reputation as market leader in advice and sales technology which is used over 25 major financial institutions. We look forward to working together to support deployments of Distribution Technology's software across multiple channels in the UK."
