Financial services company helps improve employee satisfaction

Streamlined onboarding process saves time, resources and money

To retain its competitive edge, Australian-based Industry Fund Services (IFS) needed to increase staff and customer engagement. The company is a leading provider of specialist financial products, advice and business solutions to industry and other “all benefit to member” superfunds and other financial products and services.

To do that, IFS depends heavily on outstanding employees. Improving the new employee onboarding process was a priority. Previously, new employees reported feeling disconnected and frustrated, especially on their first day.

The group turned to Evolve Information Services, who recommended Nintex. Evolve explained how Nintex Workflow automation would integrate into the company’s existing SharePoint environment.

For more than 20 years, Industry Fund Services has been Australia’s leading provider of specialist business solutions and services, financial products, tools and advice to “all benefit to member” superannuation funds.

Business Situation

Industry Fund Services looked to improve their IT and production processes for new employees and customer interactions. The firm wanted to reduce repetitive processes and onboard new staff quickly. 

Solution

In-house design and development of Nintex workflow automation created efficiencies and a better overall work experience. By automating the onboarding process, the company provided immediate work readiness for new staff, saving time, effort and money.

Nintex Workflow centralizes collaboration and data management

With Nintex Workflow and Microsoft SharePoint, IFS improved collaboration, communication, work efficiency and data management.  Additionally, IFS centralized information sources while allowing staff located away from the head office to access the same data in real time.

The company created a welcome portal for onboarding new employees before they began their first day. This portal provides information about benefits and gathers banking information required by HR staff to ensure new starters are quickly added to the payroll system.

Employees appreciate that they now get timely, accurate onboarding information and that it’s an automatic process. IFS believes that it’s saving approximately three hours in staff time for each new starter.

With each workflow and form, IFS saves an estimated $3,000. With streamlined information flow and task management, new starters have everything they need to do their job, on day one.

Nintex takes the potential of SharePoint and boosts it even further. Teams are already seeing that they have much greater and faster access to transparent and available data. There is also better data capture and analysis and issue resolution is faster and easier."
