An expanded menu of solutions and services
Looking to drive efficiency, reduce your risks and control costs?

Advent Managed Services offers enhanced technology hosting with a selection of software solutions. You can also choose from a menu of middle- and back-office services, backed by a dedicated services team that will work with you to custom-tailor workflows to your specifications.

Cloud delivery
We’ve taken technology hosting to the next level. Our cloud delivery capabilities include not only managing and maintaining your system, but also a multitude of value-added features, including:

  • Secure, reliable and guaranteed system availability
  • Customized automation and monitoring: We’ll monitor your system and confirm that data uploads and downloads are successful, integrations are working as intended, workflows are in order, and the system is responding as it should
  • Updates on the status of processes and health of your systems every morning and as requested
  • Single-provider service and support: Because we are managing both your infrastructure and your software, you just make one call with any questions or issues. And our support team can quickly expedite escalation of any issue to SS&C Advent product experts—the same people who built the system—for rapid diagnosis and resolution
  • Business continuity and disaster recovery: your system is hosted in audited, accredited data centers with strong security measures and SSAE16 certification for risk controls
