iPipeline® – a leading provider of low code / no code content-enabled digital solutions and services to the financial services market – today announced protection distributor Cavendish Online has launched its revised quote and apply system, powered by iPipeline’s Consumer Apply™ technology, across its direct-to-consumer, advised and non-advised sales channels. Consumer Apply enables Cavendish Online to access direct-to-consumer products and analyse important market data.
Cavendish Online has also adopted iPipeline’s unique online service and multi-product comparison platform, SolutionBuilder®, across its advised and non-advised sales channels.
The integration is part of Cavendish Online’s ambitious and rapid growth plan for 2021 and beyond, with targeted expansion amongst markets such as younger consumers, renters and gig workers, all of whom are underserved by current distribution channels. iPipeline uses innovative technology to empower advisers and all distribution channels to better engage and serve their customers.
