The free service will allow users of the Exweb portal to carry out a term comparative quotation on their BlackBerry device in the same way as using a computer
Once the quote has been obtained, office staff can log in to Exweb using a normal PC and retrieve the quote in order to produce key features documents and conduct online business processing.
David Child, 1st – The Exchange managing director David Child says: “We are delighted to have once more set new standards of innovation with another exciting ‘first’ for the industry. With an increasing number of intermediaries now working remotely, the ability to receive real-time quotes on a handheld device seemed an obvious and natural progression to us.
“We have chosen to initially launch our service focusing on term quotes for BlackBerry users – due to their widespread popularity as a business tool – however feedback from early adopters will be vital in allowing us to develop broader services, possibly for use on other smart client technologies.”
