Products & Services – Integration Process:
Plan document provisions can be brought into ASC’s Valuation & Compliance Testing System so that your staff can confirm that plan specifications reflect the most current plan document provisions. When the valuation & testing is complete; relevant data needed for 5500 forms, 8955-SSA, and other schedules may be sent directly to ASC’s 5500 Government Forms system for quick and easy preparation. You can publish plan documents & SPDs directly from Document System to ASC’s Web-Portals, which also provide 24/7 access to important items such as valuation & compliance reports, service agreements, and administrative forms to your clients. Finally, information from all of these systems can auto-synch with ASC’s CRM & Workflow Systems, providing a central data collection location, allowing you to fully understand your client base and effectively manage, track and monitor all aspects of your TPA business.
