Annual T3 FinTech Report Highlights Paperclip Solutions

The ‘Technology Tools for Today’ Inside Survey recognized Paperclip’s SAFE®, Internet eXpress and VCF solutions for gaining market share

HACKENSACK, NJ (April 5, 2023) — Paperclip, Inc. (OTCMKTS:PCPJ) has three solutions named in this year’s T3 (Technology Tools for Today) Inside Information Advisor Software Survey. The annual FinTech software report recognized Paperclip’s SAFE, Internet eXpress and VCF solutions for gaining market share.

T3 is a trusted resource for financial advisors, sharing the latest news plus in-depth reporting on financial services technology.

“The FinTech community has trusted Paperclip with its content management for more than three decades,” said Mike Bridges, President and COO of Paperclip. “And now they can rely on us to secure their data with SAFE® encryption-in-use.”

SAFE ensures that data is always encrypted, even while it is queried or in use. This level of encryption is revolutionary for financial services companies that need to secure sensitive information while ensuring it’s still accessible.

“One takeaway from the 2023 T3/Inside Information Technology Survey is that advisors still are not doing enough in the area of cybersecurity, said Joel P. Bruckenstein, CFP®, founder of T3. “There are numerous excellent solutions that advisors should consider when looking to improve their cyber readiness. Paperclip is one of the firms that has been working with advisors to keep advisor and client data secure.”\

Paperclip’s SAFE® encryption-in-use solution, which launched in 2022, was listed in the Cybersecurity Resources section of the report showing a 150% increase in market share and a jump in ratings from 2022.

“Cybersecurity is obviously an important catego­ry in any advisory firm’s tech stack, not only from a regulatory standpoint but also because it protects against some of the most frightening forms of business risk,” the report stated. “But the market penetration statistics—al­beit slightly on the rise—tell us that profession-specific cyber tools are not getting the attention they deserve.”

In addition to Paperclip SAFE, Paperclip’s Virtual Client Folder (VCF) and Internet eXpress were featured for the first time in this year’s report within the Document Management and Processing Tools sections, respectively.

“The goal of this annual survey is, and has always been, to help advisors and members of the fintech community answer their most basic and important questions about technology in the financial advisory space,” according to the report. “Pulling data from the previous survey, we can also measure which software/solutions are gaining mar­ket share, and track changes in user satisfaction ratings.”

The survey results were revealed at the T3 Technology Tools for Today Conference held in Tampa last month. The survey included participation from 3,309 advisors and planners.

“Paperclip listened to our customers to create solutions that help their businesses run more smoothly,” Bridges said. “We’re confident that with our current solutions and new innovations, we will continue to grow our market share in the FinTech space.”
