You will gain so much time no longer needing to manually locate corporate actions and reconcile income. The confidence you will gain from the cross checking capabilities will blow you away. Simple Fund 360 is already so fabulous, and the improvements are coming thick and fast, it will be the best move you ever made.

Migrating the existing clients was made so simple by BGL. Once in it the benefits are immediate to see: All your clients appear on a dashboard; no long you need to import the bank feeds – they are automatically updated; and more! Having worked on Desktop for over 11 years I was initially apprehensive to move, but it really was simple.

CAS 360 is a 100% improvement to CAS Desktop as is easier to use, more up to date and being in the Cloud gives much more flexibility especially during these strange times with working from home etc. All the functionality in a simple to use program.

We moved to SF360 and have never looked back. The processing of our Funds has improved two-fold and we are now able to spend more valuable time on the Finishing touches of the Fund with regards to Advice. The Cloud is the way of the Future and places our Firm on the front foot with the Most Current of Trends.

To improve efficiency and be able to access information from anywhere and anytime cloud is a must.

BGL’s AI features in the cloud leave other accounting software providers in the dust. I also work with both QBO Online & Xero and BGL surpasses what these 2 offer in terms of onboarding transaction data and matching.

Anne WrightThe Field Group

We switched to CAS 360 during beta mode and have not looked back. Since then the product has continued to be enhanced and updated. Cost can be a reason people might hesitate to migrate, but if you charge the client an annual fee, the cost can be easily absorbed. Plus, it saves you so much time.

Be prepared for the unexpected – in the current pandemic, being in the cloud allows flexibility for working from anywhere.

The time savings are incredible and as a result we have been able to dedicate resources to tidying up our CAS 360 database. Electronic signing is a complete game-changer! Also, the ability to locate forms instantly has saved hours of work in filing and accessing information. I’m the biggest CAS 360 advocate!

Michele RomanoMuro Group

A fund that would traditionally take us 10 hours to complete/prepare for audit, it’s now done in half of the time. Plus, with Simple Fund 360 it is real live data – being processed on the monthly, weekly, daily process. The information is there, and you can make decisions when you need.
