Award winning technology gives PLAN Australia brokers a chance to add a further digital edge to their businesses

PLAN Australia today announced the full roll-out of the Rundl digital platform to its network of over 1,650 brokers, following a successful ten week pilot with 20 of its brokers.

Available via an app or web browser through desktop or mobile device, Rundl enables brokers to better connect and collaborate with customers and service providers throughout the full home loan process.

As an interactive project management tool, the platform aims to create a more efficient process for all parties involved. Brokers can invite customers and business partners to join a transaction in one secure, digital space and provide clients with support and step-by-step visibility on the process at any point in time.

Features of the Rundl platform include the ability to upload and share documents via mobile device, and to communicate in real time via instant messaging.

Rundl mirrors PLAN Australia’s existing Podium software processes and can be tailored by brokers to reflect their individual branding and corporate identity.

Commenting on the roll-out, Phil Quin-Conroy, CEO, PLAN Australia, said he was pleased to support its brokers in pioneering this innovative new product.

“We are committed to leveraging technology to support brokers to improve efficiencies and complement their value proposition. This ongoing focus on innovation puts our brokers at the front of the pack and ultimately helps to drive their growth.”

A range of PLAN Australia brokers took part in the pilot, including one of PLAN Australia’s largest member groups, LJ Hooker Home Loans.

National Product and Marketing Manager for LJ Hooker Home Loans, Jeff Chapman, said: “Being a broker in 2016 has its challenges. Brokers are forever short on time but know that to deliver the best service and advice they can for their clients, they need to embrace technology. We are excited that through PLAN Australia we are able to offer Rundl to our brokers.”

Graeme Perkins, Rundl Founder, explained the evolution of the award winning* technology.

“Rundl’s method of collaborative workflow has been developed for multiple professional services firms across multiple industries. The software reduces emails and keeps both the customer and the likes of associated professionals such as lawyers and conveyancers in the loop.”

Rundl introduced the digital platform to PLAN Australia brokers at PLAN Australia’s Technology Forum which took place in Melbourne at the end of last year.
