Firm Information

Only one firm may be created per instance of PensionPro, and it is created during a firm’s initial implementation process. To access Firms and Locations from the Application Menu click on Maintenance > Firms/Locations.

 

Edit the Firm's Information

The firm name can be edited by clicking on the Edit button located next to the Firm Name dropdown menu. The Company Details record for the firm will open. Here the user can then change the name of the Firm, add/edit/delete addresses, phone numbers, contacts and prospects.

 

Firm API Key

Add-On Availability: API

If the Tier the user is on supports access to the API, or the firm has purchased the API Add-On, The Firm's API Key field will appear in Firms/Locations. The user can click on the API key to show the alpha-numeric characters or click on Generate API Key to generate the key that will need to be entered to log in to the API site.

 

Edit the PSL URL 

Add-On Availability: PlanSponsorLink

The URL for PlanSponsorLink can be edited by clicking on the PSL URL field and entering the updated URL. After entering the new URL, click Save and the Verify PSL URL. If the URL already exists the user will receive an error. If it does not exist, it will save. Please use caution when editing this field, as this will change the URL associated with PlanSponsorLink.

 

Update the Firm Logo

At the bottom of the Firms/Locations page, users will see a section displaying the Firm’s Logo. The Firm logo is the image that will appear on reports and the PlanSponsorLink.com website. Users can upload an updated firm logo when needed.

To update the firm logo:

  1. Click on the Edit button on the upper right side of the firm logo section from the Firms/Locations tab.
  2. Browse for the new logo, select it and click Open.
    • Logos must be a .jpg, .png, or .gif. 
  3. Please make sure the width is less than 400 pixels and the height is less than 200 pixels.

 

Locations

When a Client is created in PensionPro, that Client must be associated with a Location. Locations act as a security right so that only employees assigned to the corresponding Location can see Clients and Plans linked to that Location. As Clients are associated with a single location, employees can be associated with one or multiple locations. This allows users to tailor their Client and Plan structure to the internal security needs of their firm. Employee Location rights also determine what data an employee is permitted to view when running reports in PensionPro. Although Locations can limit the Client and Plan records an Employee has access to view, all contacts and company name records can be viewed regardless of Location rights.
