Australia-based Iress is launching a new hub that will offer free technology-related information and support for the financial services sector as it begins to adjust to new ways of completing tasks during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Visitors will have access to guidance and tools such as information on how to continue to support customers while working remotely.
Andrew Walsh, CEO at Iress, stated:
“In the past month, financial services businesses have had to adapt suddenly – with normal ways of working and interacting breaking down and the need for digital interaction rapidly accelerating.”
“Sound management and guidance by financial professionals is one of the ways society will navigate this crisis. It’s our job to support and assist the financial community to do that through technology. Resources and information covers practical ways businesses can stay connected to clients and their people while working from home as well as increased information on how to get the most from our software and services.”
The information is available to everyone, not just Iress’ customers. The firm offers technology to startups, consulting firms, banking challengers, digital disruptors and various finance companies.
Iress assists firms with finding better ways to manage investments, navigating capital markets, delivering financial advice, completing mortgage applications, finding and comparing insurance rates and packages, and creating enhanced customer experiences.
Iress is a technology firm offering proprietary software to the financial services sector in the Asia-Pacific region, North America, Africa and Europe. Iress’ software is reportedly used by over 9,000 businesses and 500,000 users worldwide.
The company is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), and is a member of the S&P/ASX 200 index.
