In a bid to enhance productivity, Mortgage Choice is transitioning its staff across to Google Apps – a suite of enterprise and collaboration tools.
According to the company’s chief information officer Neil Rose-Innes, the Google applications will offer Mortgage Choice franchisees a scalable IT platform that centralises a number of tools, including email, so that they can be used from any computer at any time.
“There are three main benefits associated with this transition,” Mr Rose-Innes told Mortgage Business.
“The Google apps will simplify the technology for our end users, which will ultimately improve productivity and efficiency.
“It also helps us reduce our costs by scaling back our reliance on IT support, and finally it can be used anywhere at anytime, which also enhances a franchisees productivity.”
Mortgage Choice has already transitioned more than 470 of its 1,000 staff across to Google Apps including Gmail, and Mr Rose-Innes said the aim is to have everyone operating off the same platform by the end of November.
According to Mr Rose-Innes, Mortgage Choice is the first big brand company in Australia to make the transition.
“We like to think we are sitting ahead of the bell curve,” he said.
