Bright Grey is encouraging advisers to register now for the launch of its new extranet in January designed to enable them to get full online quotes as well as apply online.
The provider says its new extranet, www.brightadviser.co.uk will enable advisers to mix and match amounts, covers and terms. They will be able to combine up to 10 covers in one quote and plan.
The online application process has been designed to mirror Bright Grey’s paper application with the provider claiming the layout will make it easier for advisers to key information because it is identical to the hard copy application form.
Advisers will also be able to store and retrieve all quotes and applications for up to 30 days from the original quote date.
Andy Peters, distribution director at Bright Grey, says the extranet is being launched after extensive trials. ”While paper applications will still be accepted, the speed and flexibility offered by our new extranet is what many advisers are looking for, and we have seen a great deal of interest in its launch,” he adds
The Exchange will be the first portal trading partner when the extranet is launched allowing advisers to click through directly to www.brightadviser.co.uk from Exweb’s new business service with all the quote and client data already keyed being automatically transferred.
Access through other industry portals is also planned, and further announcements will be made in the new year.
