iPipeline Partners with Openwork to Launch Intelligent Quote Tool

New Adviser Solution Helps Accelerate the Selling of Protection

CHELTENHAM, England--()--iPipeline® - a leading provider of next-generation solutions and services to the life and pensions market - today unveils its latest innovation for advisers working in the protection market, which it has partnered with Openwork to develop, to improve and accelerate its advice model.

“Solution Builder” is a new intelligent protection quote solution that enables advisers to sell more protection, more easily by comparing simple and complex protection products in a single view, allowing them to quickly identify the right options based on the client’s budget and needs.

It provides advisers with a faster and more efficient way of reviewing a client’s protection needs and how they could be packaged together including both multi-benefit and matrix-based single product comparisons, supporting upsell and cross-sell opportunities.

The new solution launches with Openwork, one of the UK’s largest financial advice networks, comprising more than 2,500 financial advisers. The service will be available via OWS, Openwork’s Client Management System, which is integrated with the Assureweb Portal, XRAE and now Solution Builder.

Ian Teague, Managing Director for iPipeline UK, commented: “Advisers in the protection market have talked about the need to compare multi-benefit quotes for many years, and we are delighted to have partnered with Openwork to bring this new solution to the market. Solution Builder is tablet friendly and allows advisers to upsell, cross-sell and compare multi-benefit and single benefit products in a single view and then apply online – all wrapped up in a user-friendly, simple interface.”

Commenting on the new system, Paul Shearman, Openwork’s Proposition Director for Mortgages, Protection & GI, said: “Solution Builder is an intelligent research, quote and apply tool that makes sense of the many different cover options, what these options will cost and how they could be packaged together. In terms of improving the protection advice process, it radically improves the quality and service our advisers can give their clients as solutions can be sourced considerably more comprehensively and efficiently than ever before.”

iPipeline also plans to launch its Solution Builder Open Market version, which will be available to all adviser firms later in Q2.
