Author: Albina Zhdanova
In our previous article about automation, we discussed how it benefits brokers and if it is a must to automate your business processes. Today, we will address some of the automation-related pains that brokerages have and find a solution within the TFB products portfolio:
1. It takes me ages to run the reports!

Brokers can add this as a service and charge a fee for subscription to such alerts.
