Axa rolls out extranet site for IFAs

AXA has launched a new intermediary website allowing intermediaries to access real time valuations, get quotes and submit applications for AXA life and pension products.

The site has been streamlined to have fewer pages and more functionality, and now includes the Unipass system, which provides secure internet access for IFAs, and has simplified the registration process.

The digital certificate, launched by standards body Origo, replaces the need for multiple user IDs and passwords to access provider and portal websites such as AXA&#39s.

The site is unique in the way it displays a floating toolbar on each screen, recording all activity since the user logged on, thus allowing the new application to be pre-populated, which Axa says will save time and money.

Investment marketing manager David Brooks says: “The new site helps IFAs access information on their clients, submit applications and make transactions quickly and easily at a time that suits them.”
