Is there anything else Benzinga should know about your company?
We’ve created two videos that showcase BLACK’s capabilities. This one is a bit longer and has more of a demo feel, whereas this one is shorter and more high-level. 
The RBC BLACK platform has received a wave of positive social media and press coverage for its price, integration, and innovative nature, including the following commentary from independent advisor technology expert, Joel Bruckenstein:  “It is impossible to give a full account of all the features and functions of the platform here, but suffice it to say that this is an impressive offering. The price for the RBC Black platform is $175. That includes all the underlying applications and features. It seems a reasonable price to pay for such a well-built system” – Joel Bruckenstein
