Technology solutions supplier, IRESS is using its advice technology to help accelerate online superannuation portal, Acurity Online, following the acquisition of Financial Synergy last month.
The new offering is an extended version of the previous Financial Synergy digital solution and would draw on XPLAN's multi-channel advice technology to enhance the way in which IRESS engages with advisers, super fund members, employers, and administrators.
Commenting on the benefits of the new portal, IRESS managing director of superannuation, Stephen Mackley, said fund members would draw significant benefits and would help address member engagement levels by instantly updating super data to track an individual preference.
"Once the member has established what they want to change in their superannuation to meet their goals — such as additional contribution or investment options — this is instantly updated," he said.
"The superannuation fund will not need to integrate all of the components as IRESS takes care of this."
Mackley said that the launch of the portal would benefit IRESS and showcase new technology enhancements.
"The changes will also further extend XPLAN's position as an enabler of multi-channel advice technology."
