Raymond James offers a rich suite of technology support to help its 5,300 financial advisors run their practices. However, advisors spent more time then they preferred juggling software programs. To minimize time spent on the computer, Raymond James used Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and the Microsoft Silverlight browser plug-in to create Advisor Desktop, a single portal to the 15-plus applications that advisors use to do their jobs. Using SharePoint Server as a development platform enabled Raymond James to reduce delivery time for Advisor Desktop by 30 percent and will enable the IT team to deliver future enhancements equally fast.
