Uinsure has partnered with technology provider eKeeper Group to produce quicker general insurance quotes for advisers.
The move will allow users of eKeeper Group’s CRM system, Mortgage Keeper, to automatically produce binding GI quotes via Uinsure’s open API for every mortgage case.
David Smith, chief innovation officer for Uinsure, said: “We are absolutely delighted to partner with eKeeper Group with an industry first.
“We are totally disrupting the GI intermediary market with this new innovation. Its long been an ambition of ours to deliver better customer outcomes by providing mortgageadvisers with the ability to produce binding GI quotes alongside the mortgage advice as easily and quickly as possible.
“The current ratio is woefully poor and puts the customer at greater risk of being under insured and potentially exposing the adviser to regulatory risk.
“This new partnership is the first of many utilising our new open Zero Questions API, which allows advisers to focus on advice rather than rekeying more data again. We are true pioneers when it comes to GI technology and eKeeper Group share our passion for developing best in class systems.
“We’re incredibly excited for what this disruptive collaboration holds and can’t wait to help eKeeper Group users to reach their GI potential.”
David Bennett, commercial director at eKeeper Group, added: “We are seeing some really innovative developments at Uinsure and they offer a fantastic proposition. We believe that the key to selling more GI is to make the process as simple and as automated as possible.
“This partnership is superb news for all Mortgage Keeper users that are looking to embrace technology and this integration should help to ensure more consumers are fully protected.”
Quotes for Uinsure’s Defaqto & Money Facts 5 Star-Rated cover will be generated with zero effort from the adviser or customer the moment that the mortgage application is submitted to the lender, making the process instant and allowing Mortgage Keeper users to obtain a 100% mortgage to GI quote ratio.
Graham Wilson, director at broker Options Mortgage Centre, said: “Having seen the beta version I can’t wait to roll this out across our mortgage business. The intermediary GI market has needed a shake up and this new innovation certainly delivers.
“The GI process has been too long winded and complex for far too long, its brilliant to see two technology pioneers collaborating to disrupt a market and deliver tangible value to advisers together.”
