£4,000 up for grabs, marking Adviserzone’s 10th birthday

Standard Life’s adviserzone is offering advisers to share in a £4,000 prize fund to mark its 10 year anniversary.

The insurer is launching four games to celebrate its decade of secure online services, the first of which is ‘Reduce the Paperwork’, with more online games to follow in October, November and December.

The purpose of each is to educate advisers on the ease of writing business online and the information advisers need to give their clients efficient service.

Registered users of secure services have grown from a few hundred in 1997 to over 25,000 registered users today.

Sales e-commerce manager Ross Dunlop says: “In the 10 years that I have been involved with adviserzone, we have worked with advisers to develop the online services they demand in order to operate in a low cost environment.

“Whether advisers want to obtain information, submit new business, or request a valuation using the adviserzone, their own back office software or portals, Standard Life have delivered award winning technology to help them.

“This is Standard Life’s opportunity to thank advisers for their continued support and offer them the chance to take a break and win a prize by playing our fun games.”
