Standard launches another technology guide

Standard Life has launched a free booklet focusing on technology tools to help adviser firms discover the advantages of online planning tools and calculators.
The booklet is the fourth in a series of seven free adviser booklets entitled The easy technology guides, designed to give advisers a complete reference library of advice on all aspects of e-commerce and technology options.
15,000 copies of each guide will be distributed by the providers field force and advisers can also obtain copies through its extranet service.
Standard Life sales e-commerce manager Billy Burnside says: “Whilst there are plenty of clever tools within most fund supermarkets and portals, we wanted to look at the stand alone options available to advisers, many of them free of charge. Where possible we have also included tables that offer basic information about the tools.”
