Several members of the IFS team had the pleasure of participating in Pershing’s INSITE 2019 last week in Phoenix. The conference featured 36 breakout sessions, 4 professional development workshops, 48 showcase stage presentations, a booming exhibit hall and a wealth of “inspiration, learning and networking.” Our CEO Tim Parsons and Managing Director of Product Strategy Ray Mulligan, along with Account Director Shaun Christensen, braved the desert to attend the financial advice community’s leading conference. As scorching as the weather was, we also got to take part in showing off some sizzling technology and participate in hot conversations around digital transformation, client onboarding and so much more. Here are our top takeaways from INSITE 2019:

In this post, we are sharing our top highlights from 2018. Feel free to comment with your highlights from the year.
Wow, what a year of everyone running towards the same flag at the top of the hill! Trillions of dollars in assets are up-for-grabs, and the transfer of assets is taking place. Just like in the dot-com era, where we heard much about counting eyeballs, this race is about capturing assets.
In a little less than two months, IFS application users from across the country will descend upon Charlotte, NC, for IFS's annual user group meeting, Propel 2018. As we make the final preparations for this year's event, which will be held October 24-October 25, we are reflecting on last year's meeting in Minneapolis, MN. Here is just some of the feedback we received from last year's participants:
We are excited to announce enhanced document storage capabilities that will be available as part of the 7.15 release of the IFS Automation Platform. We continue to support interfaces with on-premise document management and storage solutions, including Microsoft Sharepoint, Docupace, Documentum, as well as firm-specific solutions.
Registration for Propel 2018, our annual user group meeting, is now open! IFS clients are invited to attend this event, which is designed for IFS application users and financial services professionals interested in helping their firms increase efficiencies and create better client experiences with the IFS platform. This year, Propel will be held in our own backyard, Charlotte, NC, October 24-25, 2018. We look forward to connecting, collaborating, learning together, and showing off our hometown!
