Advent Direct® Community Contributes to Product Enhancements
Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADVS), a leading provider of software and services to the global investment management industry, today announced the global release of its first suite of product updates of 2014. The new release contains platform and integration enhancements for Advent's Geneva®, Advent Portfolio Exchange® (APX), Moxy®, Advent Rules Manager®, and Advent Revenue Center®.
Building upon a history of incorporating "client-sourced" feedback and requests into products, Advent Direct® Community is helping to make the process more transparent. Live since November 2013, Advent Direct® Community is a collaborative online client experience where Advent clients can share their ideas and suggestions for improving Advent's solutions. Community members can show their support for crowd-sourced ideas by giving "kudos" to posts they agree with and see what their peers "kudo" by monitoring fellow members' votes; one of the highest rated enhancement requests has been incorporated into the latest APX update.
The new releases of Advent's products deliver a number of key client benefits, including:
For Moxy®, Advent Rules Manager®, and Advent Revenue Center®:

"With Advent Direct® Community, we are tuned in now more than ever to our clients' needs. This release was truly a collaborative effort between Advent and our clients."
