SALT LAKE CITY, June 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EbixExchange and CapitalRock have entered into a strategic partnership agreement for EbixExchange to resell CapitalRock's RightBridge technology to its clients. The firms will work together to more closely integrate CapitalRock's RightBridge technology with the Ebix CRM SmartOffice system. The companies will also work together to deploy a version of RightBridge sold by EbixExchange as an add-on for SmartOffice retail customers.

The RightBridge solution uses a sophisticated business intelligence and analytics engine to analyze clients' accounts, policies, holdings, transaction history and demographic information to determine the most appropriate and relevant sales opportunities for financial professionals to discuss with their clients. RightBridge provides the reasons why each opportunity is relevant; giving the advisor the information they need to engage in client discussions.

"Using the Smart Integrator we integrated SmartOffice data into RightBridge last year. We are excited to further our relationship with EbixExchange as SmartOffice is a leading CRM system for financial services," says John Hyde, President and CEO at CapitalRock. "Agents and financial professionals have made SmartOffice the central hub for their client data and RightBridge can leverage that data to identify more sales opportunities for advisors while maintaining a trusted relationship." 

The needs based sales opportunities identified by RightBridge are displayed directly in SmartOffice and users can easily access these sales opportunities on the client contact tab or from an embedded widget in a SmartOffice dashboard. It's important that the users can access everything they need right within the SmartOffice system which is the core of many agents and financial professionals productivity.

Dan Delity, Senior Vice President of Ebix Exchange, commented, "We are committed to making SmartOffice the center of agent productivity and embedding RightBridge into SmartOffice allows agents and financial professionals to drive additional sales opportunities directly from SmartOffice  I'm confident RightBridge can drive a significant increase in sales for SmartOffice Users and any product we can offer that helps drive revenue and ROI for our customers is a positive."
