01 Mar 16

Data Insight, the Kiwi property data and marketing insight specialists, has been recognised at the New Zealand Direct Marketing Awards (NZDM) for its innovative online property valuation tool ‘Valocity’.

Kiwi business, Data Insight won big at the New Zealand Direct Marketing Awards (NZDM), scooping five major awards for their innovative online property valuation tool, ‘Valocity’.

The Data Insight team team went up against twelve other finalists, and received multiple NZDM Awards, including:

  • Nexus Supreme Winner
  • Nexus Gold - Marketing Products & Services
  • Nexus Gold - Strategic Vision
  • Nexus Silver - Innovation
  • Nexus Bronze - CRM & Data Management

Valocity is used by NZ banks to support financial lending decisions. It's the first-ever Kiwi built Valuation Ordering System, and has revolutionised the New Zealand market since it was launched just over a year ago, according to the company.

Through disrupting the status quo by significantly improving the overall quality of data and systems that underpin the New Zealand property and mortgage market, Valocity enables the lender to take the customer ‘off the market’ by providing superior service and a faster mortgage decision.

Carmen Vicelich, Data Insight and Valocity founder and managing director, says the team was thrilled Valocity’s success was recognised by an organisation as prestigious as the NZ Marketing Association and were equally delighted to win the Nexus Supreme award.

“We are humbled to win against so many worthy finalists. There’s never been a more exciting time to work in data and technology and we are delighted to have our work recognised by the industry. The award is validation that with big dreams and dream teams anything is possible!” says Vicelich.
