2plan launches mobile version of Nexus portal

2plan Wealth Management has launched a mobile version of its adviser portal Nexus.

The m-commerce service gives advisers with mobile phones, smartphones and PDAs on-demand access to Nexus functionality, including commission payments, case checking reports and flagged policies. Users can also access policy information and notes and provider contact details.

The Nexus mobile system has been tested on handsets, including the iPhone and BlackBerry.

The Investment Quorum chief executive Lee Robertson says: “This is an excellent move. On-demand solutions using technology will become ever more important so it is good to see this type of thing being rolled out.”
