Cbus builds industry-first ‘employer smartphone app’

21 November 2016

Cbus employers will save time managing their super payments on the go with the Cbus Employer Mobile App.

A first of its kind, Cbus in partnership with its administrator The Link Group, has developed an app which allows businesses to make super contributions, add new employees, generate receipts and manage account administration, all from the convenience of their mobile.

The app is designed primarily for small businesses (employing less than 20 staff) who make up 97% of Cbus’ total employer base of 115,000 employers. Overall, around 95% of employers are joining via an online channel which highlights the potential for the employer app to deliver simple super solutions and potentially transform the way businesses interact with Cbus.

Jarrod Coysh, Executive Manager, Employer Experience said “Cbus is focused on providing superannuation product and service solutions for employers – the new app is a perfect example of this. Employers now have a simple and secure way to interact with Cbus whether they’re onsite, on the go, or on the couch.”

The app lets businesses add new employees by scanning their ID to automatically pre-fill and match their member details. Super contributions can then be made with the tap of a screen, PDF receipts can be easily created and business details can be updated anytime. The app login is highly secure and only requires the use of a 4-digit pin or fingerprint technology once the account is verified.

Cbus’ employer app complements the highly successful member smartphone app that went live in 2014 and has received over 84,000 downloads. The employer app is now available on both Apple iPhone and Android devices, and is free to download for all existing or new Cbus employers.
