<p>Sydney, NSW - 15 September 2008 - Saropa Pty Ltd today announced the first six financial services firms using the Saropa service since the platform launch less than a month ago.</p>
<p>Eastern seaboard practices including Surveyor Financial Services, Future Wealth Planners, Smyth Financial Services, Australian Finance Planners, Moneycat Consulting and Finwel are now providing Saropa to clients.</p>
<p>'Many advisers are concerned about client defection to other professional services organisations,' said Rob Corben, Saropa director and co-founder. 'Saropa is a great retention tool and barrier to client switching.'</p>
<p>Kurt Smyth at Smyth Financial Services sees Saropa as a client 'must-have' and is keen to take first-mover advantage over other professional services firms.</p>
<p>'Saropa is an important value-add that further enhances our overall client value proposition,' commented Smyth. 'In an increasingly competitive market these are the sort of service features that help our practice stand-out from the crowd.'</p>
<p>According to Michael New at Surveyor Financial Services, signing with Saropa was an easy value-adding decision that complements Surveyor's client value proposition.</p>
<p>'We were impressed at how easily Saropa helps to counter the underinsurance problem and felt our clients would appreciate the service as well,' said New.</p>
<p>'Saropa conveniently provides an area that we can outsource with confidence, yet adds value in our ongoing customer care strategy. Being a fee for service business we have also decided that all revenue will be donated to charity. For us, Saropa is more about increasing our value to clients,' commented New.</p>
<p>The Saropa online solution enables financial advisers to offer clients a personal disaster recovery and underinsurance assessment service. Additionally, as a result of Saropa's relationship with CGU Insurance, advisers are able to earn fee income on any CGU policy sold via the solution.</p>
