Assurant Intermediary has added an updated online instant quote system and a facility to refer clients to Assurant.
It is now offering access to the online quoting system – Quoforma+ – with access to policy and renewal information, dashboard management information (MI) and commission statements.
Its team will provide advice and guidance to customers referred by advisers on essential GI cover, as well as providing a bespoke panel. Advisers can offer a range of products from insurers (household products from LV=Broker and Ageas have already been added this year) and can choose to configure products to create their own panel.
Carl Stacey (pictured), head of distribution at Assurant Intermediary, said: “We have been working with the adviser community since 2007 and our service is designed to make it easy for advisers to engage customers and advise them on home insurance and protection via our easy to use Quoforma+ system.
“Not only does it give instant indicative quotes, but the dashboard also provides information on existing policies to ensure that users are aware of renewal dates and the opportunity to schedule catch up meetings and seek new opportunities to meet the needs of customers.
“Brokers do not always have the time to spend on additional services like GI and that is why Assurant Intermediary provides a referral service, where our introducers can let our experienced team be their outsourced facility, thereby maximising GI take up and building a valuable income stream.”
