Broadband Compare founders unveil new NZ Compare umbrella brand

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Today saw the team behind Broadband Compare announce the creation of NZ Compare (https://www.nzcompare.com), a new umbrella brand that will bring together the company’s growing suite of New Zealand comparison websites.

  
* New NZ Compare umbrella brand will bring brand consistency to the suite of easy-to-use New Zealand price comparison websites
 
* Power Compare officially launches under the NZ Compare brand - Compare Power Now
 
* Plans for 5 additional New Zealand comparison websites over the next 12 months including Money Compare, a financial product comparison website
 
Following the breakout growth of Broadband Compare, and today’s launch of Power Compare, the decision was made to consolidate under a single umbrella brand to allow better engagement and communication with both customers and clients.
 
Commenting on the launch of the new comparison brand, Gavin Male, Founder and CEO of NZ Compare said “Price comparison websites are a growing trend in consumer shopping.  A recent survey in the UK found that over 85% of consumers with internet access had used a price comparison website in the last 12 months and New Zealanders are quickly adopting this trend.  Over the last 12 months, Broadband Compare has seen more than 350,000 visitors and our research has shown that Kiwis want the tools to help them make more informed purchase decisions.” 
 
The new NZ Compare brand will bring together a suite of comparison websites for New Zealanders, including the hugely popular Broadband Compare (https://www.broadbandcompare.co.nz/), the latest launch Power Compare (https://www.powercompare.co.nz/) and other, soon to launch comparison websites will feature Mobile, Travel, Study, Money and more.  
 
Male continues, “NZ Compare has been created with the sole purpose of helping Kiwi’s compare and save and our goal is to become the #1 trusted source of information for personal finance, utilities and saving money in New Zealand.”
 

About NZ Compare:

 
NZ Compare (www.nzcompare.com) is a New Zealand based company that owns and manages a suite of comparison websites.  The first NZ Compare website, Broadband Compare (www.broadbandcompare.co.nz) launched in June 2016 and has been a huge success with over 500,000 Kiwis comparing broadband plans since launch.  2018 saw the launch of Power Compare and further sites are in development covering the Mobile phone, Travel and Finance verticals.  The NZ Compare goal is to be the #1 trusted source of information for personal finance, utilities and saving money in New Zealand.
