Kent Coulter Wealth Management Group -- part of Richardson GMP
After nearly 20 years in the business, the Kent Coulter Wealth Management Group was tired of using software that didn't work the way they did, so they asked MooseTrout to provide custom software that would empower them to work the way they worked. They also asked MooseTrout to look into what it would take to integrate their phone system with their CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software so that they can dial a client with one click from their computer and so that incoming calls would be automatically logged in their CRM.
