Introduction to Midwinter’s AdviceOS
AdviceOS is Midwinter’s next generation Advice Operating System – an industry awarded, out-of-the-box CRM and advice modelling solution.
Midwinter has produced a fast, responsive, best of breed system containing a list of cutting-edge features that puts AdviceOS leagues ahead of the competition.
According to the results from Investment Trends 2014 Planner Technology Report, based on an online survey of over 1,000 financial planners, Midwinter has the highest overall user satisfaction provided by a software vendor and has been awarded this accolade five times in the past six years.
What’s so different about AdviceOS?
We have retained the brilliantly simple functionality of Reasonable Basis and used the very latest in cloud computing technology, to provide advisers with a fully featured software subscription which integrates seamlessly with other selected relevant programs (for more on the AdviceOS open API ecosystem click HERE).
When developing AdviceOS, Midwinter focused on the needs of the entrepreneurial financial adviser – giving access to vast array of product, strategy and client management tools.
- AdviceOS manages your clients efficiently,
- AdviceOS engages your clients intuitively,
- AdviceOS generates advice rapidly,
- AdviceOS handles your compliance obligations quickly.

Hosting and security
Midwinter has partnered with the high speed Amazon Web Service (AWS – world’s largest provider of online solutions) to host AdviceOS in the cloud. There are several benefits in doing this:
- Scalability – capacity to the web servers can be scaled up or down within minutes,
- Redundancy – two “instances” of AdviceOS are available to all clients, with each instance located in a different Amazon Availability Zone (AZ) as a failsafe,
- Elasticity – our elastic load balancers adjust the amount of load balancing capacity needed in response to incoming AdviceOS traffic,
- Backups – an online mirror (backup) of the live client database is made in real time,
- Security – safeguard your information while enabling the benefit and value of cloud computing.
- Midwinter’s current award winning software (Reasonable Basis) will continue to work in parallel with AdviceOS
- AdviceOS leverages off the best advice components of Reasonable Basis whilst incorporating an enterprise online solution,
