iPipeline® – a leading provider of no code / low code, content-based digital solutions and services – today launched a home insurance referral service in partnership with Safe&Secure Insurance, the award-winning GI (General Insurance) specialist with 20 years of service excellence.
The new service, available via SolutionBuilder®, iPipeline’s award-winning protection sourcing solution, allows advisers to refer Home Insurance alongside life, critical illness, and income protection, transferring the selling, administration & paperwork element of home insurance to Safe&Secure.
After the adviser sources the best cover to meet the clients’ needs, the client is referred to Safe&Secure, who sources the best home insurance cover from a large panel of 32 insurers, completing the application and all the admin and case management. The adviser will continue to ‘own’ the home insurance business and the relationship with the client. The new service improves processes and increases efficiencies to enable advisers to focus on providing their clients with a complete protection offering, Mortgage, Protection, and Home Insurance.
The launch of the new “Home Insurance Referral” service follows the expansion of iPipeline’s quoting capability to include home products via SolutionBuilder in 2018. Legal & General, Uinsure and Paymentshield are all available on the Safe&Secure referral service.
Paul Yates, Product Strategy Director from iPipeline said: “Lack of time is one of the main reasons many advisers are unable to offer both protection and Home Insurance to clients. Our new GI Referral Service via Safe&Secure will free up even more time so advisers can really focus on ensuring their clients have the best all round protection for their needs. At a time when insurers will be compelled to offer the same price for insurance products as they do for new business, there is no better time to offer a quality home insurance broking service that really puts customer needs first.”
Chris Griffin, MD at Safe&Secure Insurance commented: “We pride ourselves on the professional, independent advice offered to our brokers’ customers. Over 700 Brokers now refer their customers to Safe&Secure to arrange their Home Insurance. The advice offered is a ‘fully advised’ service using well-known household brands, we complete all the paperwork and the admin, and we take responsibility for the compliance and any complaints and renewals. We have paid out more than £5 million in renewal commissions to introducing brokers. The ‘Refer it’ service is just so easy to use for busy mortgage brokers.”
