CURO on Microsoft's Power Platform
CURO is deployed on Microsoft’s Power Platform. Power Platform enables firms to solve complex issues, analyse data, automate processes, build powerful AI, and integrate applications. It creates a single source-of-truth for all data and enables applications from across the enterprise to inter-operate. Microsoft’s vision for Power Platform came from the recognition that data is the foundation of everything, and organisations that harness data to drive business processes and business insights, will outperform those that do not. They also wanted to empower frontline workers (non-technical) who see opportunities every day to improve things but have not been enabled to do so. Power Platform implements this vision via five cloud services: Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents, and Power Pages.

Efficiency, productivity, and monetising your data
The world is changing fast and the adoption of digital technologies across all demographics is now the norm. Firms need to be prepared to meet the ever increasing demands of clients for digital engagement, face to face and online. To address this, advice firms must harness their data to enable digital engagement, to drive efficient business processes and automation, as well as to extract powerful insights for decision making and monetisation of opportunities. To do this, firms must digitally transform themselves in ways that enables data to flow freely, securely and in a structured way throughout their organisation as well as externally to and from trusted third parties, product providers, and platforms.
Think big, start small, but just start
CURO helps firms digitally transform so that they become more profitable and sustainable. For some advice firms, digital transformation has become more than a way of remaining competitive, it has become necessary for survival. However, digitalisation is not simply taking what you currently do on paper and in spreadsheets and ‘computerising’ it. It is about transforming current processes so that they either no longer need to be done or they are improved so that they yield greater productivity and operational efficiencies. But at the heart of every digitally transformed business is the recognition that it all begins and ends with data.
CURO delivers unprecedented access to data and helps firms to maximise the benefits of digitalisation.
Winners and losers - Don't get left behind
Many advice firms have identified the direction of travel and have started the journey to digital transformation.
This sea change means there will inevitably be winners and losers within the financial planning and wealth management sector. The winners will be those firms that embrace digital transformation and invest in modern technology that supports current and evolving business models. The losers will be firms that either fail to digitalise or choose to stick with existing software solutions that will increasingly restrict a firm’s ability to compete, grow, and meet the changing demands from their clients and the regulator.
Digital transformation is all about ensuring that you are delivering the right service to the right clients, at the right price. It is about understanding the business risks and about being able to make the right decisions at the right time, based on reality rather than gut feel. The future is all about data and CURO does data brilliantly.
