Covisum Acquires PrairieSmarts' Risk Tools to Bring Enhanced Suite of Retirement Planning Tools

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Omaha, NE - Feb 21, 2017 - ​​​Two companies are joining forces to offer financial advisors powerful risk analytics with retirement planning solutions. PrairieSmarts’ advanced risk management platform for financial services professionals has been acquired by Covisum, a retirement income planning technology and training solution. All products will continue to be available for purchase for advisor offices or as an enterprise-wide solution. Beginning later this year, advisors will be able to utilize the products on a singular web-based platform by Covisum. Current PrairieSmarts users will continue to have access to the platform’s integrations with Orion Advisors and Redtail Technology. 

“It was very clear from our first conversation with the team at PrairieSmarts that we shared a vision to help advisors grow and enhance their practices,” said Joe Elsasser, CFP®, president of Covisum. “Both firms realize that having solid analytics matters. PrairieSmarts is estimating risk with academic rigor in a way that adds real perspective to a client’s portfolio. Couple that with essential Social Security and tax software, and the recommendations an advisor is able to deliver can translate into significantly greater value to the advisor’s client.”

In 2016, Covisum rebranded from Social Security Timing® to better reflect its broader software and service offerings. PrairieSmarts’ SmartRisk will join Social Security Timing and Tax Clarity™ as Covisum core product offerings. The PrairieSmarts brand will continue to operate through much of 2017, after which their solutions will continue to be available on the Covisum platform.   

“We are thrilled to join a team that shares our passion and is built on high quality analytics,” said Mike Chochon, co-founder of PrairieSmarts.  “Covisum is an established fintech solution provider and has great relationships in the insurance industry. Their existing infrastructure and brand accelerates the adoption of SmartRisk.”

The combined team expects to be able to deliver winning solutions for common client challenges through the application of advanced analytics, artificial intelligence and machine-learning techniques delivered in an intuitive and actionable way.
