Hear what our brokers have to say about FLEX

  • One of the main reasons for my switch to AFG a year ago was my dissatisfaction in my existing aggregator’s software. The AFG offering was impressive, and with FLEX I know I had the perfect software. FLEX still continues to exceed my expectations, it is a simple, easy to use program yet incredibly powerful and a wonderful asset for my business.

  • The iPad app is such a great tool, it’s brilliant in its ability to calculate quickly. Whether it be to calculate the mortgage insurance, loan repayment, borrowing costs, it can quickly illustrate to the client at the touch of a screen. What’s most impressive is its capacity to show the client what a difference can be made to their borrowing power by reducing a credit card limit or a particular loan, at the slide of a finger. Another great function is to show them effortlessly if they contribute more to a purchase, how much they can save in mortgage insurance … It’s has also has halved my meeting times with a client. You guys are doing a cracking job with this, it’s fantastic.

  • In December 2012 we decided to move from our current aggregator across to AFG. I decided to move to AFG based on the superior overall package AFG provided to our business … I can honestly say AFG have exceeded my expectations. The FLEX system has increased our efficiency by approximately 30%. The allowance of the system to have a workflow from point of sale through to commission payment has reduced double handling of files and reduced costs to our business. We are also very excited about the future initiatives presented in regards to the FLEX system, these initiatives have demonstrated to me that AFG are serious about allocating resources to evolve their systems as the industry and technology evolve.

  • A little over 12 months ago I swapped from another aggregator group to AFG. One of the main reasons for the switch was my dissatisfaction with my last aggregator’s software. Over 12 months later, AFG’s FLEX still continues to exceed my expectations. It is a simple, easy to use program, yet incredibly powerful and a wonderful asset for my business.
