Tamale users share ideas and preview product updates

By Mary McNiff

Research today is disseminated by so many sources that it can be challenging to zero in on what’s most important, which is why many firms turn to research management technology to help. SS&C Advent’s Tamale RMS® addresses these challenges with purpose-built software to help investment firms organize their research and apply it most effectively in their decision-making processes.

In early October, a group of Tamale clients convened in New York to hear about current and planned solution enhancements, and more importantly, to share different ways to use the system from other clients.

Richard Chou, vice president of product development, kicked off the event with an overview of how Tamale fits into SS&C’s Platform as a Service (PaaS) initiative. This initiative is backed by a 300-person global development team and dedicated RMS specialist. “Tamale figures prominently in the company’s PaaS strategy,” Chou said. “It is the first SS&C Advent cross-platform (web and mobile) solution and the first to appear on iPhones and iPads with its own app.”

Matt Cunha, head of Tamale product development, spoke about Tamale year-to-date, as well as what to look for in 2019. In general, the Tamale team has been working to make the system easier to use, more efficient and better at surfacing answers. Recently, the team delivered the capability to take data offline with the mobile app when internet access is unavailable.

Following the presentation, attendees had the opportunity to split up into peer-to-peer roundtables and share best practices. Participants described the variety of ways firms use Tamale, from everyday research analysis and team collaboration to due diligence documentation for compliance and external investment manager tracking. The roundtables offered a chance for users to learn from each other how they might fully take advantage of Tamale’s capabilities, along with time-saving tips and tricks.

This event is part of SS&C Advent’s commitment to stay in the forefront of research management technology to help our clients’ work more productively, collaborate more effectively, and make smarter investment decisions. To learn more about Tamale RMS®, please contact us.
