Legal & General has launched what it claims to be the UK’s first dedicated protection app for Apple iPhones and iPads.
The app provides a quote facility that advisers can use on client visits.
It includes ‘real time’ protection quotes, a Tools section that enables pre-selection of options, as well as links to the Legal & General websites that give access to product information and literature.
The app also includes links to an adviser’s contacts list to set up clients interested in protection and calendar to enable advisers to book appointments, pre-population of emails with the quote results so that advisers can email the details to themselves, their client or their administration team and ‘real time’ marketing messages, product and pricing information.
Alison Manning, head of product development for individual protection, said: “We are delighted to be the first protection provider to market with a dedicated iPhone and iPad App for advisers. Legal & General have created an engaging and user-friendly quote tool using the unique features of an App rather than just adapting existing quote functionality. It is important for the industry to use modern technology that can help make protection more accessible for advisers and their clients.
