With the new Siri-like voice recognition technology, customers can perform routine enquiries or access reports by speaking out pre-defined, aided keywords. The voice recognition technology enables users to navigate the SS&C GlobeOp App menu, review fund documents and access critical reports. SS&C GlobeOp has submitted the latest release to the Apple® App Store. The voice recognition assistant is designed to make accessing critical fund data more convenient, especially for those who are often out of the office and rely on mobile access.
