Openwork to launch protection app

Openwork has revealed details of its new protection application for iOS devices.

Developed in conjunction with Assureweb, the Openwork-branded app means advisers will be able to obtain protection quotes via Apple mobile devices.

Quotes will be available from Openwork’s panel of protection providers, Openwork Select, or from its single-tie proposition, Zurich Plus.

Users of Openwork Select will be able to obtain quotes via the App from all five providers on the panel – Aegon Scottish Equitable, Friends Life, Legal & General, Zurich and LV=.

The app, which can be downloaded to the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad, will be made available to advisers in mid-February.

Paul Shearman, mortgage, protection and general insurance proposition director, said: “Tablet use has been rising across the network and the app will significantly enhance the accessibility of protection quotes for our advisers as part of our on-going ‘ease of doing business’ initiative.”””
