Assureweb and Dan link up to offer advisers PC discounts

IFA portal Assureweb is linking up with computer supplier Dan Technology to give its registered users discounts on buying and running desktop PCs.

Users can get 5 per cent off on Dan Technology&#39s range of office and home desktop PC systems and 50 per cent off an onsite warranty.

Assureweb claims this can amount to savings of up to £200.

This is the first in a series of partnerships Assureweb is planning over the next few months designed to bring additional benefits to IFAs registered with the company.

Applications can be made directly on Assureweb&#39s website or by calling its hotline.

Sales and marketing director Nicola Mitchell says: “This agreement with Dan Technology provides IFAs with the opportunity to make significant savings on both office and home PC systems plus warranty.

“It is a further example of Assureweb&#39s commitment to provide IFAs with the tools they need to deliver the highest-quality service to their clients.”
