Skandia and Standard Life are the two most popular providers with advisers when they are looking to adopt e-business links, according to research from software firm 1st.
Skandia polled 36 per cent and Standard Life 33 per cent when advisers were asked which providers were most important to your organisation in terms of adopting links.
The research also found asset analysis was the most popular online service, with 60 per cent, followed by fund updates with 56 per cent and e-commission with 54 per cent.
66 per cent of advisers said they would definitely be moving traditional business processes online with 18 per cent saying they would make the move in the next month.
