Bondle is a contemporary Client Engagement Tool that is built around the philosophy that an environment of “No Confusion” in complex transactions provides for a delightful customer experience. At Bondle, we have built a customer-centric platform by bringing the customer into the conversation. 

Outlined below are key elements of our proposition.  Further details are available on our website (http://getbondle.com/solutions/migration-agents/)

  • A one-stop-shop – Today, most of us wouldn’t fancy carrying around a camera, a calculator, a music player, a calendar, a map AND a phone! The smartphone changed that for us. 

Similarly, Bondle unifies the multiple touch points between you and your clients by seamlessly integrating communications, documents and tasks, ensuring both you and your client are clear on the status of the case.  Bondle effectively replaces a myriad of systems such as Emails, WhatsApp, Google Drive, and Checklists, reducing complexity and increasing productivity.  We also understand that there are sensitive documents such as client notes that need to remain private; with the My Drive functionality, you can store confidential information separately.

Sometimes when you read a news article you simply cannot believe your eyes!

Or you experience your eyeballs dropping out of your head in utter amazement and disbelief.

That was my reaction when I came across this article in today's Sydney Morning Herald which reports that the Department has adopted a policy that requires asylum seekers who are receiving taxpayer support to obtain the Department's approval before purchasing a household pet such as a dog or cat (the article indicates that there is no word as to whether the policy covers goldfish, guinea pigs or birds).
