Before the introduction of the Putnam Intelligent Assistant, financial advisors had to manually search FundVisualizer results. This introduced a human error into the process. The voice-enabled Intelligent Assistant can significantly reduce search time by presenting a hands-free alternative to text-based searches. It also integrates with Putnam’s existing FundVisualizer application.
