Anthill Cool Company Awards
The Cool Company Awards were launched in 2006 as a way for Anthill to acknowledge and celebrate Australian organisations that are doing things differently to bring about positive change. Cool Companies stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are trend-setters in attitude and action. Quite simply, they are … cool! More
Mozo [WINNER, NUMBER CRUSHER]
Category: Number Crusher
Banks want to be your friends. But it doesn’t always feel that way.
So, trolling the internet and deciding which bank offers the lesser evil is often just a pain in the…yes you got it.
Mozo founder Rohan Gamble probably thought the same, and in 2008 a financial services marketplace was founded in the coldest warehouse office in Sydney. Mozo, which is short for Money Zone, helps Australians get a better deal on their finances and help banks connect with customers actively looking for their products.
Product searches, budget calculators, comparison tables and honest to goodness guides are all on Mozo to help ease the pain. And it’s not just that, there is some real solid savings to be had. The Switch & Save Calculator shows, for example, that a family could save $70,000 by switching home loan providers. How’s that for cool?
The company’s database now covers 1,800 products from 180+ financial providers, and over 100,000 real customer reviews. Mozo also connects with their customers via real time chat, so it’s almost like having a real financial consultant minus the dreaded hard-sell.
Mozo challenges its staff to savings in their everyday lives. They commit to buying nothing new, going without coffee (gasp!), bringing lunch to work, and walking or biking to the office, for two weeks a month. Talk about a company that walks the talk.
A website that compares financial services doesn’t need to be fusty by nature. Mozo is trying, in its own little way, to shake up the banking sector. And we think that’s cool.
