Three key benefits the UGC team experiences using the Wrkr SMSF Hub.
Hours of time savings
The UGC team no longer handles rollover requests manually. A process that once involved pages of paperwork is now handled inside the Wrkr SMSF Hub. The team now saves at least 30 minutes to an hour of administration time for every rollover. Features like instant payment reference numbers for rollover-out transactions allow rollovers to be processed on the same day, a process that used to take weeks.
Increased transparency amongst stakeholders
Each rollover offers complete transparency to all parties. Confirmations are now provided in real-time, and each rollover’s status can be tracked from initiation to completion. This saves significant time as advisors don’t have to guess where a rollover is in its lifecycle. They can quickly inform clients of each rollover status and respond to potential issues.
Client contribution information is in one place
Downloading contribution data from one platform also saves time. Advisors simply need to log into one platform to access all client contribution information rather than spend time looking for the right data.
Preparing for the future
UGC now adds all SMSF clients to the Wrkr SMSF Hub regardless of whether or not they plan to conduct rollovers soon. This ensures the team is ready to handle any upcoming SMSF requests quickly and accurately. Overall, the Wrkr SMSF Hub allows UGC to continue to provide quality service to their clients and keep up to date with current and future compliance requirements.
