SAN FRANCISCO - Hearsay Social®, provider of the Predictive Omnichannel Suite for financial advisors and insurance agents, announced in a press release that it has obtained a patent granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for one-of-a-kind technology supporting its social media management platform.

The patented functionality (U.S. Patent No. 9,311,679) enables the Hearsay Social enterprise social media management platform to integrate with social networks – including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter – and allows users to log in to these networks via unique single sign-on (SSO) technology. This functionality is a necessity for the global firms that use Hearsay Social, making it simple for their financial advisors and insurance agents to seamlessly and compliantly access social media for business.

“Hearsay Social is dedicated to delivering technology innovations to our customers so that their advisors can easily engage with clients and stay relevant in a rapidly evolving digital world,” said Robert MacCloy, director of engineering at Hearsay Social. “With our newly patented single sign-on integration, we’re the undisputed leading solution for advisors and agents to seamlessly access social networks, which has become mission-critical for business.”

Currently, eight of the world’s top 10 financial services firms and more than 150,000 financial advisors and insurance agents use Hearsay Social to efficiently, holistically and compliantly deepen relationships with clients and prospects on digital channels, including social media.

This is the third issued patent for the company. Two previously issued patents, U.S. Patent No. 9,070,110 and U.S. Patent No. 8,914,454, pertain to “identification of unknown social media assets” and “verification of social media data,” respectively.
