Android? App for Schwab Advisor Center Now Available

Friday, March 29, 2013 9:00 AM

Charles Schwab announced today the launch of the Schwab Advisor Center app for Android™, the latest development in mobile capabilities for independent investment advisors that work with Schwab Advisor Services. As of today, advisors will be able to access client account information via all Android devices, including phones, tablets, and Kindle products.

Advisors with an Android device that utilizes OS 2.2 or higher can use the new app to search for client accounts by name or number, view single account balances, positions and history, and look up Schwab service team members and phone numbers with ease.

“In the past 18 months, we have seen an explosion of interest in mobile technologies among the advisors we serve,” said Neesha Hathi, senior vice president of technology solutions for Schwab Advisor Services. “Advisors are using mobile technology as an easy way to access information on the go, but many are also recognizing that it’s a powerful tool to increase business efficiency, cut down on paperwork, and improve client service.”

In addition to the new Android app, Schwab also has a Schwab Advisor Center app for the iPhone® and for the iPad®. Since launching in 2012, there have been more than 8,000 downloads of the apps and advisors have praised their simplicity and ease of use. Investors who work with independent investment advisors also have access to apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Android.

“The app itself is really just the building block,” said Hathi. “The power of mobile comes when advisors use it to make significant changes in how they communicate with their clients and improve business processes.”
