GBST (ASX:GBT), the ASX-listed wealth management and broking technology specialist, last night was awarded the hotly-contested Best Software Provider award at the 2012 Aberdeen Asset Management Platform Awards.
The Best Software category is awarded to companies who have shown outstanding technology and service in the UK Platform market.
The shortlist for the award was impressive, with the judges selecting GBST because of the “speed in which clients are able to implement without trauma as well as keeping the clients happy”
The award caps off a remarkable few months for GBST. It has recently won a new mandate from Fidelity Worldwide Investments and seen its client AEGON launch its new GBST-powered workplace platform to great acclaim, after a development brought in on time and on budget. The software provider also implemented a new technology solution for AJ Bell in 2012.
Commenting, Rob DeDominicis, CEO of GBST Wealth Management said, “2012 has been a landmark year already for GBST Wealth Management, and this award is a tremendous vote of confidence in what our team has achieved working in partnership with our clients. We have a tremendous sense of energy and purpose, and are committed to showing the market that full-scale platform technology need not take years and cost tens of millions of pounds to implement.”
