Most advisors come to us looking for a solution for a specific challenge. Either they are frustrated with the way they are currently operating, or they heard from another advisor about how our software can make their life easier.
Covisum’s suite of retirement income planning software is designed to help you improve your processes and demonstrate your advice's value by seamlessly weaving together the most important aspects of a retirement income strategy for your clients.
The other day, I talked with one of our advisors whose practice added $100 million in business in the last year and credited our software and support for making it possible. That’s the value of a financial advisor using Covisum’s retirement income planning platform.
A Closer Look at the Covisum Fintech Software Suite
Covisum solutions are available modularly, so they fit into your practice where you need them. You may want to beef up the income planning tool you already use with a better solution for finding Roth conversion opportunities and other withdrawal strategies, or you may need the ability to seamlessly toggle between tax opportunities and a Social Security benefit plan in virtual client meetings.
Whatever your specific needs, Covisum has the right mix of software to help make your job easier. Let’s look at some features that make Covisum software solutions so powerful for financial advisors, whether used independently or as part of a comprehensive retirement income planning strategy.

Covisum Software Solutions Are Better Together
Although each Covisum solution is an asset, advisors maximize the value they can provide clients and the ROI their practice can achieve when they subscribe to the entire software suite.
For example, your client may need help visualizing how the different parts of their retirement income strategy make up the whole. You can use Income InSight to give the client an overview of their broader retirement income strategy and then toggle between Tax Clarity, Social Security Timing, and SmartRisk to dive into the details and demonstrate how changes to one affect the others.
If your client has a pain point they want to discuss, such as retirement taxes, Social Security benefits, or risk, you can start with the specific issue and then expand the conversation. Use Tax Clarity, Social Security Timing, and SmartRisk to answer your client’s questions. Then, drive home your value using Income InSight to demonstrate how each segment impacts their overall retirement income plan.
