    I’m a big fan of personally handling the stuff I know, but for everything else I prefer to pay others. While my wife or I can manage the checkbook, for high finance we’ll call a broker.

    P4D does what it does very well. The scalability and reliability are impressive. But it doesn’t do everything and that’s where we call P4Broker.

    Brokers decide where things such as money or P4 requests should go, and how. At Cirrus Logic, we’re big fans of making the Helix experience as seamless as possible for the user. Handling new and changed functionality via P4Broker helps us do that.
