1st Exchange & N4 has bought Screen Business, which provides websites and tools to help advisers and providers interact with consumers.
The technology provider says the acquisition of Screen Business is key to supporting sales and servicing through multiple distribution channels.
It already works in partnership with Screen Business to deliver web solutions which link to Adviser Office, 1st Exchange & N4's back office solution for advisers.
James Whelan, managing director and Andrew Byham, technical director, Screen Business will both join 1st Exchange & N4. They will report to intermediary director Andy Watts and CTO John Cunningham respectively.
All the staff from Screen Business will be transferring into the new organisation with immediate effect where they will continue to develop and deliver solutions.
Chris Noblet, managing director at 1st Exchange & N4, says: "Our focus and commitment is to help our adviser clients to succeed and grow as the industry travels through RDR and beyond. Our acquisition of Screen Business delivers a stronger, combined offering, that helps the distribution of financial services in the new world.
"It will be business as usual for all clients, partners and suppliers - but with greater potential now for improved communications, flexibility, service, and future development."
