The new system will also see Accord remind brokers about outstanding paperwork to help keep the broker informed and to speed up case processing.
It will also have provide a Q&A for valuations that come in lower than expected and what options are available to clients.
Accord also pledges send only one email every morning summarising all business with Accord, instead of one per case.
