Kiwibank launches Home Hunter app

According to Kiwibank, the app will tell users which houses match their pre-approval, provide registered values, comparable house sale, and estimated sale prices.

Kiwibank has launched Home Hunter, a free mobile app, that will allow New Zealanders to seek pre-approval for a home loan and then go house hunting armed with information provided by the app.

According to Kiwibank, the app, which is available on smartphone, tablet or desktop, will tell users which houses match their pre-approval, provide registered values, comparable house sale, estimated sale prices, and even the number of sunshine hours a property will get.

“The end-to-end process of securing pre-approval could be done before you’ve finished your morning coffee,” said Kiwibank CEO, Paul Brock.

“In a competitive housing market, where many people are finding it harder than ever to fulfil the Kiwi dream of owning their own home, we hope Kiwibank Home Hunter will make it a little bit easier,” he said.

The app was designed in-house by Kiwibank employees, Peter Fletcher-Dobson and Anand Ranchard. Kiwibank says it wants as many people as possible to download and test the app.

“We’ve created a Facebook community for people to tell us what they think and share their stories.

We’ll also be selecting a group of serious home hunters to document their journey as they use Home Hunter and other support from Kiwibank to navigate the real estate market over the coming months,” said Fletcher-Dobson.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
