Data Management/Normalization & Implementation Tool
SAYS offers robust ETL functionality, which enables users to source data from multiple systems in native file formats using Excel and/or text. SAYS’ data management layer may be utilized to parse, transform and enrich data. Normalized data is then available from the data store layer to be exported and/or consumed by another system. Importantly, the platform is modular and able to incorporate industry-specific business logic in a scalable way.
For example, if your firm's business involves onboarding new clients with data in non-standard formats, then the SAYS platform can be utilized to build custom data models. This can produce a significant ROI, as implementation timelines are shortened significantly, human resources previously deployed to manage complex data integrations may be reallocated, and operational risks are reduced.
Service Bureau Platform
Traditionally Industry/Business/System Experts (Consultants) have advised their clients but third-party systems were needed to implement their suggestions for functions such as Composite Management Systems for GIPS compliance or Reporting systems for generating Fund Fact sheets. The clients were responsible for procuring and implementing these systems which carried with it multi-year commitment and associated costs. SAYS now offers consultants the opportunity to offer their clients a front-to-back service that includes advisory and SAAS with setup/on-going support. Following are the options available to a client of a SAYS Registered Service Bureau entity:
Partial Service Model: This option has the client sign-up for a SAYS account with direct billing. The account is linked to the Service Bureau Entity, hence all support for initial setup and ongoing maintenance is handled by the Service Bureau thus leveraging an existing relationship.
Full Service Model: This option has the client data hosted in a separate schema (multi-tenancy) within the Service Bureau entity's SAYS account and service costs are negotiated directly between the client and the Service Bureau. The client's data and reporting is managed directly by the Service Bureau.
Below are some of the benefits to being a SAYS Registered Service Bureau:
Ability to leverage a short-term advisory role with a client to a long-term front-to-back service model.
Retain clients and generate a recurring revenue stream while saving the client long-term system costs.
SAYS is a marketplace for custom hosted solutions. Monetize an idea by implementing and deploying a custom solution on the platform and then market it to clients.

The SAYS platform may be leveraged by 3rd party vendors to offer your clients a hosted version of your products, while providing them with the ability to license those products and avoiding long term contracts.
