The Exchange has confirmed that Pioneer Friendly Society will be using the Exweb portal service as its first online e-commerce partner.
Exweb’s 23,500 users will now be able to perform client specific comparisons for the provider’s income protection products.
Pioneer’s ‘Pure Protection’ IP policy includes day 1 cover, no loading for occupation or gender, no penalties for smokers, inflation proofing option and a free health claims advisory service.
The Exchange managing director David Child says: “We are delighted that Pioneer has chosen Exweb as its preferred industry platform, giving our users exclusive advance access to its IP products.
“We continue to see record volumes of both online quotes and e-submissions on the Exweb portal and as new providers join, the service gives advisers an expanding choice of all the leading market providers and products available, benefiting them and their clients.”
Pioneer chief executive Andrew Chapman says: “Joining Exweb is a logical step in Pioneer’s strategy to build its distribution channels and follows the expansion of our sales team and successful launch of ePioneer, our on-line e-Business system, earlier this year. We look forward to the increased volumes of business for individual income protection the Exweb channel will bring.”
