Global software provider SS&C Technologies Holdings announced the Australian Catholic Superannuation and Retirement Fund (ACSRF) has extended its partnership with SS&C’s technology platform, Bluedoor, to implement a new mobile app for its members.
SS&C Bluedoor’s suite of digital solutions includes an app for the superannuation market to enhance member accessibility and improve the digital user experience.
The mobile app will operate as part of ACSRF’s omnichannel engagement with members, enabling real-time access to super and pension information and their accounts from their personal devices.
This comes after SS&C’s 2020 Superannuation Survey found most super members prefer digital communications from their funds, including mobile tools.
“We had developed a leading-edge responsive digital portal, but our members were asking for a mobile application to engage with the fund,” said Greg Cantor, chief executive at ACSRF.
“We chose SS&C to deliver our mobile application as they offered a modern, functionally-rich app with a quick time to market and best member value. By leveraging SS&C’s technology, we continue to deliver the best possible outcomes for ACSRF’s members.”
Jude Metcalfe, managing director at SS&C Australia, said the company is proud to expand its partnership with ACSRF in the Australian market.
“We are excited at the opportunity to help ACSRF achieve their goals of delivering more tools for their members while continuously enhancing their experience,” he said.
Founded 40 years ago, ACSRF is a profit-to-member fund that assists members from the Catholic education, healthcare, aged care and welfare sectors with their retirement savings. It now manages over $9 billion on behalf of almost 90,000 members.
