Sesame has adopted iPipeline’s research, quote and apply portal, SolutionBuilder, as part of its enhanced protection proposition for members and their customers.
SolutionBuilder is a comprehensive portal which enables advisers to fully assess their customers’ protection needs. Delivering a complete service, the portal supports all views of single and multi-benefit products so that advisers can quickly identify and recommend the right cover for each client’s needs and budget. SolutionBuilder is available to Sesame members alongside the sourcing system from Iress, which is already being used in the network.
Sesame has unveiled a range of protection enhancements this year aimed at improving the efficient delivery of quality professional advice. Along with the roll-out of SolutionBuilder, other protection enhancements from Sesame include bolstering its face-to-face business development support for members and adding four new providers to its protection panel.
SolutionBuilder recently integrated with Mortgage Brain’s ‘The Key’, providing advisers with a seamless process. Sesame members will benefit from this integration in the coming months, helping to reduce re-keying of data and improving sales process documentation.
Jeff Woods, Business Development Director, Sesame said:
We are always looking for solutions that help make the delivery of quality advice to customers easier. With its ability to source multi-benefit and single-benefit protection quotes with a single round of data input, SolutionBuilder marks another important step in the delivery of our enhanced protection proposition for members. By continually improving our processes and working more efficiently, we are seeking to give advisers more time to have a broader conversation with customers about their needs.
Ian Teague, UK Managing Director, iPipeline commented:
SolutionBuilder’s multi-solution capability has delivered a 130% increase in multi-benefit activity and a 100% increase in Income Protection over the past year. In addition to this increase, we’ve seen an 18% increase in average premiums and a 7% increase in the number of benefits sold per client.
SolutionBuilder was launched at the beginning of 2015 and has rapidly evolved to become one of the leading protection modelling and fulfilment solutions for professional advisers in the UK.
