HEADLINE: Fast Connect joins forces with Console Cloud


Console Cloud software developers Console integrates with leading New Zealand connections + utilities tech company Fast Connect. Console Cloud is the fastest growing cloud-based property management software platform in Australia and New Zealand. Fast Connect is a leader in home connections services in New Zealand

Fast Connect partners with Console Cloud in new software integration

In the early 2000s, Fast Connect founder Kelly Munro helped  Console launch Gateway, Console’s original trust accounting software, in New Zealand. Twenty years later, Console officially launches Console Cloud into New Zealand, and Munro is back on the scene: this time, leading the partnership between her own business Fast Connect and Console Cloud. 

‘In some ways, Console’s relationship with Fast Connect is the longest relationship of any in NZ’ says Mike Munro, Business Development Manager.

As New Zealand’s leading connections and utilities provider, Fast Connect works with real estate agencies to help tenants organise  moving and utilities services such as power, gas, and broadband and Sky.

Together, Fast Connect and Console Cloud help real estate agencies

With Console Cloud, real estate agencies and property managers can provide a comprehensive connections and utilities service to new and vacating tenants. 

The team at Fast Connect speak with movers, power companies, and so forth, and arrange everything for these tenants, free of charge. This saves them time shopping around for suppliers, and gives them exclusive access to promotions and discounts. 

Providing a better service for clients is just the start. Fast Connect will reward real estate agencies for referrals, with an earning potential of up to $120 commission per agency for every vacate and new tenant onboard. That new stream of adjacent revenue is now easier to administer with Console Cloud, with referrals created in a couple of clicks. 

It’s all about the service to our clients

Seeing Console Cloud for the first time left a great impression on Mike Munro, Business Development Manager at Fast Connect.  ‘I have to say it looked amazing—it’s a great interface and easy to use. It’s awesome to see so much software development in the property management industry!’

These sentiments were shared by Console’s Partnerships Manager, Natasha Anich. ‘We’re all about the customer here at Console, so providing featured integrations that are going to be easy and effective for our clients is key’. Integrating with Fast Connect enables us to serve our clients and our clients’ clients better, making the transition between homes a smoother experience for all parties involved.’

The integration sees agencies easily activate and offer Fast Connect’s services to their tenants directly from their Console Cloud property management software account. This means no more additional data entry, less admin to manage, and no opportunities lost to serve your clients even better. 

For a limited time, Console Cloud clients who activate their Fast Connect account in the Marketplace will go into the draw to win an Air New Zealand travel voucher and hotel voucher valued at $1500 for every referral (incoming or vacating tenant) referred to Fast Connect until 18/12/2020.
