Platform development group


Plan, prioritise, make it happen

How does it work?

Advisers know better than anyone what their clients are looking for, so we hand the reins over to them through the platform development group. This helps to make sure your business gets the platform you need. Each member provides feedback on the platform’s development, suggests ideas for improvement and helps prioritise the list of upcoming changes.


Who’s involved?

The group meets four times a year and is made up of ten Nucleus users – advisers, directors, business owners and operations managers. Some are new users, others more established. Each meeting is chaired by Rob Bray of Imperious Capital.


What do you do?

The group’s job is to prioritise the bigger issues affecting fixes, enhancements and new features. They put strategic thought into new developments using their knowledge of the marketplace, insight from other users and their own experience of using the platform.


How does it work with other groups?

The platform development group provides insight from the user base as well as using feedback gathered from user sessions, which take place regionally twice a year.


How do I get involved?

Whether it’s a tweak to the layout of a form or an idea for a killer app, users can let members of the group know, or feed back through user sessions or people at Nucleus.

“The PDG’s function is to help prioritise the bigger issues and the development of new features. This point is crucial to Nucleus remaining successful. Nucleus is too small to compete with the budgets others wield – the sole competitive advantage Nucleus has is its advisers and their insights.”
