Money Matters* is a leading financial advisory firm that has been serving a diverse clientele for over a decade.
With a strong commitment to delivering personalised financial solutions, the firm has built a reputation for excellence and integrity.
However, as they continued to grow, they found themselves grappling with operational inefficiencies that began to impact both their internal team and their client satisfaction.
Not just minor inconveniences
They were significant roadblocks that threatened to impede the firm’s growth and service quality.
Money Matters knew they needed to act. They needed a focused and user-friendly solution that would address their specific challenges, starting with the thankless task of collecting information and documents from their clients.
That’s when they discovered Gatheroo, a platform designed to streamline this process, and the transformation began…
Challenges Faced By Financial Service Providers
1. Inefficient Document Collection
The Manual Process: The team at Money Matters had to individually request various financial documents from each client Through an email or phone calls. Once received, these documents were manually reviewed for completeness and accuracy, often requiring additional follow-up for missing or incorrect information, again through emails or phone calls.
Time-Consuming Nature: This manual process took on average 15 hours per week, which equates to nearly half a full-time position. It was a significant drain on resources and left less time for value-added services like client advisory.
Error-Prone: The lack of a standardised process led to frequent errors, such as misplaced documents and overlooked discrepancies, which further extended the time required to complete the document collection process.
2. Client Communication Issues:
Lack of Transparency: Team members were frustrated because they couldn’t see what other team members had communicated with clients. This information was often buried in individual email accounts, leading to misunderstandings and duplicated efforts.
3. Onboarding New Team Members & Clients
The administrative overload was left to the exisiting team to deal with the onboarding process, which included document verification, training schedules, and initial task allocation.
4. Security Concerns
The sensitive nature of financial data demanded stringent security measures, which their existing system failed to provide.
