Legal & General (L&G) has launched an online point-of-sale business system which allows advisers to manage their own cases from start to finish.
The system, called 'OLP Connect', builds on Legal & General's existing OLP platform, and offers advisers a clear view of the progress of all an adviser's applications, wherever they are in the process, seven days a week.
It also provides advisers with the ability to quote and apply for up to 40 product variations from its protection range on one application and offers an improved point-of-sale underwriting system, meaning quicker approvals. It offers total control of every protection case right up to on risk.
The new system is currently being rolled out in phases with various partners throughout 2009. The initial user group included LifeSearch and Direct Life & Pensions, and is now available to the rest of the IFA market.
"For the first time, advisers will be able to log in to monitor and progress applications without having to keep phoning us up," says L&G managing director of protection Bernie Hickman says.
"Everything about the system is designed to make doing business with us simpler, faster, more efficient and with a greater degree of visibility and control."
For more information, advisers should visit www.olpconnect.com or call 0845 270 7010.
