Edward Jones ranks in top 100 innovators
Financial-service firm Edward Jones ranked in the top 100 on this year’s InformationWeek 500 - a list of the top technology innovators in the U.S., according to Matthew De Vries, a financial advisor in West Fargo.
Edward Jones was ranked as the No. 90 company among 500 companies chosen for the list. It was recognized for a project developed and rolled out to all of its 12,000 North American financial advisors in a mere five months - JonesLink Mobile, a mobile-friendly desktop rich with client information and usable on iPads, tablets and smartphones. The March rollout instantly made it easier for financial advisors to provide face-to-face personalized advice wherever most convenient for clients. With the rich app experience available on a tablet, they can access a client account, then review a client’s portfolio and analytic charts to prepare for an appointment or conduct a meeting.
InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation’s most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments, and administrative practices of America’s best-known companies. The InformationWeek 500 ranking is unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
