Exchange links with IntelliFlo for two-way quote services

The Exchange’s quotation and new business service, Exweb, will now deliver further integration with Intelligent Office, the back office system from IntelliFlo.

IntelliFlo will be able to offer its users a two-way link to the quotes service within Exweb, enabling the quote information to be returned to Intelligent Office.

The new business integration capability will re-use the data captured within IO and Exweb to pre-populate provider extranets and electronic application forms, enabling advisers to easily access quotations and submit new business online.

IntelliFlo chief executive Nick Eatock says: “This integration will significantly improve the capability to re-use the data captured in Intelligent Office and Exweb.

“This integration between Intelligent Office and Exweb will play a significant role in helping intermediaries adopt e-business to achieve efficiency savings through the best use of technology.”

The Exchange managing director David Child says: “We are committed to improving the online capability of intermediaries. The Exchange continues to roll-out enhanced integrations to Exweb – reinforcing our creation of an industry utility – and we will continue to expand the service to as many users as possible.”

England vs Australia: pensions

Well, the cricket season is here, and England and Australia are stepping up to the wicket. Although we compete with each other in the sporting world, when it comes to pensions, Australia’s pension programme is held up as a model for our auto-enrolment initiative. Auto-enrolment was introduced because people weren’t saving enough into their pensions, and it is still early days but signs are positive. However, in Australia, saving into a pension is compulsory, and in fact employers are the ones who have to pay in. Employees in Australia can make additional contributions into their pensions, but they don’t have to. Should the onus be on the employer or employee to save? Well in the UK we think it’s both, but to get ‘adequate’ savings for retirement it’s the employee who has to pay more in.
