Kitces versus T3 Surveys: What My Comparison Reveals
Michael Kitces just published the results of his new software survey. Many of the results confirmed what Joel Bruckenstein and Bob Veres have been reporting for years. But there were some key differences.
Bruckenstein and Veres launched this year’s annual T3/Inside Information Software Survey for advisors and advisory firms, inviting everybody in the planning community to lend their views. The questionnaire lists more than 300 different programs and solutions in 40 different categories, where participants can offer a single click that tells us not just what they use but their 1-10 rating of their user experience.
This year, Michael Kitces, of The Kitces Report, asked similar questions, albeit with a slightly different take on the categories, and the completed writeup was just released.

Family Wealth Report – November 2023
In this Family Wealth Report article written by Charlie Paikert, Joel Bruckenstein, president of T3 (Technology Tools for Today) and producer of the T3 annual tech showcase conference, offers these comments about how AI is effecting financial advisors:
AI will generate blogs, brainstorming, research and agenda creation, Bruckenstein said. Marketing firms are currently deploying AI for lead generation. AI will also be used for recommending ‘next best actions’ and “identifying business opportunities among existing clients,” Bruckenstein added.
What’s more, Bruckenstein expects a slew of major AI product announcements for wealth managers at the next T3 conference, scheduled to be held in Las Vegas January 22-25, 2024. Attendees will also be able to see the latest and greatest fintech innovations — everything from financial planning, estate planning, tax planning, investment management, practice management tools, cybersecurity protection, and much more.

T3 / Inside Information Tech Survey 2023 Open Now – September 2023
This is an invitation to participate in our annual Software Survey, where financial advisors rate the products/solutions they use in their office on a scale of 1-10. If survey respondents don’t use a particular category of software, just skip over that category, which greatly shortens the time required to complete the survey.
Bob Veres and I hope that all financial advisors will take the time to participate. And, of course, we’ll make the ratings and rankings available in a comprehensive report early next year, when the final data has been collected.
Thank you sincerely for your participation.
