kloudtrack® Integrates LaserApp Into kloudtrack® Compliance Technologies for Financial Services

kloudtrack® INTEGRATES LASERAPP INTO COMPLIANCE TECHNOLOGIES FOR FINANCIAL SERVICES

ROCKVILLE, MD and SAN DIEGO, CA – December 11, 2014 – kloudtrack®, a leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) technologies for financial services and other industries, today announced integration of automated form filling technologies from LaserApp into the kloudtrack® compliance and risk management computing platform.

The LaserApp-enabled kloudtrack® platform has been available to existing kloudtrack® customers since August 1 and, as of today, is now also offered under General Availability to non-existing kloudtrack® customers either directly from kloudtrack® and LaserApp or through their communities of distributors and channel partners.
“The holy grail for broker-dealers is a concept called ‘straight-through-processing’ and LaserApp is on the frontline of that battle-scape daily by assisting broker-dealers in capturing accurate customer and transaction data as early in the sales application process as possible,” stated Michael P. Binko, CEO and president of kloudtrack®. “While macro industry issues continue to make the straight-through concept a challenge to implement, the integration of kloudtrack® with LaserApp proves that steps forward are being made and moves our customers much further along that path,” Binko added.

The combined solution fuses LaserApp’s automated “check and app” form filling software and LaserApp’s ability to link with virtually any customer relationship management (CRM) system with the kloudtrack® SaaS-based document management, archiving, compliance, risk mitigation, workflow and business process management tools. The result is an affordable, easy-to-implement, yet powerful Internet-based solution for fast-growing and technology savvy broker dealer firms and their field offices.

“The compliance and risk management benefits of the kloudtrack® platform are enhanced by the fact that the kloudtrack® delivery model is SaaS and that they have created their data management architecture in such a way that integration with third-party offerings such as ours is truly seamless and without hits to performance,” stated Robert Powell, director of Marketing for LaserApp. “In addition, by having LaserApp data archived in the kloudtrack® TrackFile™ back-end database, any word or phrase becomes full-text searchable even in scanned files or attachments. The ROI value of this capability is particularly evident in instances of compliance audit or review some time after a securities-related order has been processed,” continued Powell.

Moving well beyond enterprise productivity, data management and simple compliance, thekloudtrack® platform incorporates support for business process management (BPM), supervisory procedures, workflow, detailed reporting, communication surveillance, disaster recovery, business continuity, integration with legacy systems, sophisticated archive/retrieval functions and electronic check-processing and transactions.

Additional Recent kloudtrack® Developments:

kloudtrack®recently completed formal Return on Investment (ROI) Benchmark Studies within the broker-dealer community and also refined pricing by developing a line of KloudTrack Packages that combine the two most widely deployedkloudtrack® compliance modules TrackFlow™ and TrackFile. Under the kloudtrack®Packages, broker-dealers, OSJs or branch offices with even less than 10 employees can easily step-into a deployment.

All kloudtrack® Modules are still available for purchase and deployment as individual offerings; however, the kloudtrack® Packages incorporate considerable discounts for customers that know they need combined productivity, compliance and risk management technologies and anticipate solid growth in the near term. Broker-dealers, OSJs or branch offices with between five (5) and 2500 registered reps in geographically dispersed offices are the ideal match for kloudtrack® and the platform is equally suited for independent or centralized (enterprise) broker-dealer business models.

kloudtrack® also introduced a more comprehensive suite of Solution Services. These Solution Services are now also available in three contract types — hourly, project-based or retainer-based. “The LaserApp integration was completed by members of our Solution Services team and representatives the type of high-quality work these engineers, developers and data management project teams are delivering to customers of all sizes,” added Binko.

Financial Services: Case 4

THE POWER OF kloudtrack®

When the home office of Jefferson Pilot was investigating document management systems, they needed a centralized system that was secure, NASD/SEC compliant, failsafe, accessible through many satellite offices, and it had to be customized. kloudtrack® met all of these objectives. Today, many of Jefferson Pilot’s Offices of Supervisory Jurisdiction – from Connecticut to California – are enjoying greater productivity, more efficient communication, and a dramatic reduction in the number of paper files.

“It’s saved Herculean amounts of time.”

Mike MacDonald is an independent owner of Mike MacDonald Financial Management in California, and has enjoyed the convenience of kloudtrack® especially during home office audits or inquiries. Now, when the OSJ needs to review or investigate, they can log in to his documents through kloudtrack® and access what they need. “They can audit me without bothering me. They can get what they need and they don’t have to waste my time.”

SAVES SPACE

Over the past few months, Mike has reviewed all his hard copy documents, identified files he needs to keep for NASD and he has scanned and stored these items in kloudtrack®. He now has all relevant documents dated back to 1979 securely stored for easy retrieval. This represents considerable savings.

“I rent less space now, because I don’t have filing cabinets.”

A SERVICE PROVIDER YOU CAN COUNT ON

Implementing new document management technology represents a change in the way you do business, and kloudtrack® understands that the initial launch phase is a critical time. kloudtrack® representatives help you get your files uploaded into the system, determine how you will categorize your data so it can be efficiently retrieved, and then work with you and your staff to get you acclimated to the system within a matter of weeks, not months. Throughout the process, it’s important to have a good relationship with your service provider. For Mike, working with the kloudtrack® staff has been “a breath of fresh air – a great resource.”

kloudtrack® Introduces TrackHealth™ Version of SaaS|Cloud Technology Platform

ANNAPOLIS, MD – December 9, 2013: kloudtrack® today
announced general availability of its kloudtrack® TrackHealth™ technology platform.
TrackHealth is a specialized version of the company’s kloudtrack® SaaS-Cloud
computing workflow, data/document management, compliance and risk mitigation
platform.  kloudtrack® TrackHealth allows patients, practitioners, office managers/staff,
administrators, specialists and other medical stakeholders to more actively share data
and monitor critical decisions and related electronic health records (EHRs) at all stages
of a patient’s care.

With the majority of healthcare practices and institutions striving to keep operating costs
to a minimum these firms naturally rely on third-party vendors or service providers for
such operations as legal, accounting, HR and records management throughout the
life-cycle of patient care.  Being Software-as-a-Service  and Cloud (SaaS|Cloud) based it
does not matter if TrackHealth users are internal staff, third-party service providers or
individual patients.

Access to information is assigned to users at varying “rights” levels which controls
exactly what data users can see and what each user can do with such data. This tiered
user structure also controls which TrackHealth application tools are available to each
individual user as well as the fees associated with accessing the system – keeping costs low.

kloudtrack® TrackHealth was developed to address the Human Side of Compliance® in
the healthcare, medical, insurance, pharmaceutical and related sectors,” stated Michael
P. Binko, president and CEO of kloudtrack®. “This human side is
the cross-roads where individuals interact with sensitive patient data. Our heritage of
handling critical financial data in the heavily-regulated securities, insurance, banking
and deal-flow communities is the foundation upon which TrackHealth was forged.”

As healthcare reform becomes more refined, stakeholders at all levels will need
to be more diligent in addressing regulatory/compliance scrutiny, best-practice
management, data security, risk mitigation and transparency. To that end, the company
formally submitted kloudtrack® for certification by the Certification Commission for
Health Information Technology (CCHIT) and expects to announce certification soon.

“The ability to address federal/state and industry guidelines for quality care and trusted
patient records management are the anchor tenets of TrackHealth and the landscape
that kloudtrack® was built to simplify. Combining these critical needs with the cost-effective
SaaS|Cloud computing delivery model is a win-win for all healthcare communities,”
added Binko.

Patients are also being asked to get more “involved” in their healthcare. This
participation begins with trusted access to, portability of and greater visibility into their
own EHRs and thrives in an environment where communication with their practitioners is
efficiently supported and encouraged – scenarios specifically supported by TrackHealth.

TrackHealth technologies can be deployed very quickly without the typical hard-costs
of new computing equipment, additional IT staff or long-term software maintenance
contracts.  This “low overhead” aspect of the technology makes TrackHealth a definitive
platform for both large and small healthcare organizations.

EHR Your Way™
TrackHealth often works side-by-side with existing practice management technologies
as there is typically little need to completely replace current IT systems. Instead,
practitioners keep suitable assets in place while using TrackHealth and the kloudtrack®

kloudhub™ module to interact with and extend IT capabilities into new areas of
transparency, records access and data/process management. This concept is part of
an initiative kloudtrack® has branded as EHR Your Way™ and emphasizes the ability to tailor
TrackHealth to the way practitioners already operate.

Additionally, the kloudtrack® Solution Services team is available to advise and work closely with
customers to perform IT audits that identify where TrackHealth can supplement existing
systems. Solution Services teams also project manage deployments with customer
teams in order to identify, prioritize and surpass specific return-on-investment (ROI)
goals and objectives.

Beyond simple monitoring of data, users and business rules, TrackHealth incorporates
tools such as document management, e-mail and message archive/surveillance, audit
trails and reporting capabilities that provide critical knowledge to decision makers. Audit
trails are inherent in the system to ensure only authorized users are accessing sensitive
data. This information directly relates to increased team efficiency, improved patient
care and support for Meaningful Use Outcomes.

Financial Services: Case 3

THE POWER OF kloudtrack®

When Professional Investors Exchange was investigating document management systems, they needed a centralized system that was secure, NASD/SEC compliant, failsafe, accessible through many satellite offices, and it had to be customized. kloudtrack® met all of these objectives. Today, their geographically dispersed branch offices are enjoying greater productivity, more efficient communication, and a dramatic reduction in the number of paper files.

SAVES SPACE

“One big advantage is that I don’t have to create hard copy files and store them,” says Ruth DeMoura of PIE. Now, Ruth scans in documents and uploads them to kloudtrack® once and they’re permanently and securely stored. Everything is date stamped, so there’s a record of when something was scanned.

IMPROVED COMMUNICATION WITH REMOTE OFFICES

With satellite offices all over the country, the benefit of kloudtrack®  is that everyone can be accessing and looking at the same document at the same time. Now, when a rep calls and asks a question, everyone can be looking at the document. “It’s beyond words,” says Ruth.

“I DON’T NEED A FILER, I HAVE kloudtrack®

In an office where hundreds of documents must be tracked and stored daily, Ruth used to employ a full time office assistant to do the work of copying and filing. With kloudtrack® this position has been eliminated with the added benefit of quality control; now Ruth maintains control over how records are indexed and stored and is not at the mercy of “temp typos.” kloudtrack® has improved her workflow. “It has eliminated hard copies but [in the process] it has also created more time to do more work for me.”

A SERVICE PROVIDER YOU CAN COUNT ON

Implementing new document management technology represents a change in the way you do business, and kloudtrack®understands that the initial launch phase is a critical time. kloudtrack® representatives help you get your files uploaded into the system, determine how you will categorize your data so it can be efficiently retrieved, and then work with you and your staff to get you acclimated to the system within a matter of weeks, not months. At first, Ruth wasn’t sure what to expect. “Now, it’s wonderful.”

Financial Services: Case 2

The Power of kloudtrack®When the home office of Jefferson Pilot was investigating document management systems, they needed a centralized system that was secure, NASD/SEC compliant, failsafe, accessible through many satellite offices, and it had to be customized. kloudtrack® met all of these objectives. Today, many of Jefferson Pilot’s Offices of Supervisory Jurisdiction – from Connecticut to California – are enjoying greater productivity, more efficient communication, and a dramatic reduction in the number of paper files.

“Sooner or later, [you're] tired of buying filing cabinets.” -Pat Watka, Tristate

IMPROVED COMMUNICATION WITH REMOTE OFFICES

Pat Watka at Tristate has been working on kloudtrack® for several years, inputting hundreds of thousands of pages. “One thing that is very convenient is that the home office can go in and check kloudtrack® before they call me.” In the past, this process would involve a phone call, then a search for the hard copy document in a filing cabinet, then copying and faxing the document to the home office. With the time stamp feature, you can tell exactly when a document was scanned and sent.

“It’s not uncommon when you send things in the mail, that they don’t get where they’re supposed to.”

If a rep calls looking for a Change of Broker Dealer form, Pat can quickly find the file in kloudtrack® and then fax all or part of the document to the rep using Winfax without ever having to leave her desk.

A SERVICE PROVIDER YOU CAN COUNT ON

Implementing new document management technology represents a change in the way you do business, and kloudtrack® understands that the initial launch phase is a critical time. “It’s a three-step process, but once it’s in, it’s worth it,” said Pat. kloudtrack® representatives help you get your files uploaded into the system, determine how you will categorize your data so it can be efficiently retrieved, and then work with you and your staff to get you acclimated to the system within a matter of weeks, not months. Pat appreciates how easy it has been to work with the kloudtrack® team in solving problems and answering questions. “[They've] always been really good at getting back to me.
