Indianapolis, IN, March 4, 2002 - Connect2A.com, LLC announces a strategic alliance with WealthCounsel. The alliance will enable data from the Connect2A Service, a customizable electronic personal information form and data manager, to integrate with the WealthCounsel Practice System, an estate planning document creation system.
The alliance will increase office efficiencies for law firms across the country that are using the WealthCounsel Practice System by eliminating duplicate data entry. When using the Connect2A electronic personal information form in the initial planning stage of a client's estate plan, an attorney will now send the collected data directly to the WealthCounsel Practice System. In addition, the Connect2A service allows WealthCounsel attorneys to update and track the total net worth, ownership, and beneficiary designations of their client's assets with greater ease and efficiency.
Connect2A is a technology company that focuses on harnessing the power of the internet to increase office efficiencies for accountants, attorneys, and financial professionals. Connect2A has developed an application service that includes a customizable electronic personal information form that serves as a data manager to increase office efficiencies and professional collaboration during the planning, lifetime maintenance, and after-death administration of a client's financial and/or estate plan.
Connect2A and the WealthCounsel will jointly market the Connect2A Service to over 300 WealthCounsel members.
