Advisor & Client Feedback...


Advisors share their personal experiences leading to the success they are having using the Retirement Analyzer.


Clients describe how working with a Retirement Analyzer advisor simplifies the process to a point where they understand their plans.

The RA is the most valuable agent tool in the marketplace today. It helps our agents provide solutions instead of pushing products. This software gives our agents the competitive edge and is a must for anyone trying to build their business.

Cody Foster, Founder Advisors Excel, Kansas

I’ve enjoyed using the RA software for a few years now. Since I have been doing so, I have noticed that it constantly evolves and improves. After 35 years in the business, I can honestly say that I have never worked with a tool as comprehensive, relevant, and useful.

Thank you both for the boot camp in Orlando! I've used RA 3 times since I've returned and have had huge sales all 3 times. I closed a case for $250,000 in managed money and $500,000 in annuities. Previously, I wrote $250,000 in annuities and a huge life case worth about $30,000 in commission. I just can't believe the success that I'm having with this and I'm so thankful for your help!

Retirement Analyzer History

Chuck spent 30 years as a high level insurance producer, helping clients understand retirement planning. Back in 1978, Chuck was one of the first to recognize that use of a computer and a specialized software program, would play an important role in creating understandable financial plans for clients.

Chuck & Pam Cravens founded Cravens & Associates in 1985 for the purpose of creating a proprietary financial planning software program. Their dream was to develop a program that could help many and be understood by all.

Chuck took his 30 years of industry experience and used it to create a comprehensive yet easy to understand software program called the Retirement Analyzer (RA). RA helps users build their business while promoting client understanding.

In keeping with Chuck & Pam’s dream, Thomas Gold Solutions continues to grow and prosper as we help agents, broker dealers, advisors, and financial organizations increase business and become more successful. Today, the program is being used across the nation by some of the most respected agents, advisors, and financial organizations.
