Pandia supports a wide variety of revenue data sources including, but not limited to, National Financial, Pershing, LPL, Raymond James, Thomson BETA, First Clearing, DTCC/NSCC, DAZL, and DST. This diverse range of financial data is aggregated into Pandia’s proprietary data structure. This structure is designed to keep track of critical information, such as: capped and uncapped commissions, source of funds, referral information, and branch credit. Also, storing trail and fee revenue at the customer account level allows for quick reallocation during territory reassignment.
With intuitive interfaces, staff can configure compensation plans and rules that fit their firm’s unique needs. In addition, staff can edit customer and trade information to correct errors that might have occurred at the carrier or clearing firm. Automated data aggregation of all sources of revenue into one central database increases the accuracy of the data and reduces the amount of back office labor required to process the revenue.
Robust reporting features are available for reps and management alike. Advisors have access to a dashboard and trade blotter with up-to-date sales numbers and can view pending trades. Management can see current and historical figures and can preview payroll numbers throughout the month.
Pandia also supports a variety of related services to make the compensation management service more robust: trade order entry, referral and goal management, lead list management, contact management, and book of business management.
