Paymentshield to link with Trigold platform

Paymentshield will link its Inertia software to Trigold\'s Prospector AAA platform in the coming months.

The insurance distributor says the partnership will bolster broker income by providing Trigold’s 25,000 subscribers with immediate quotes for buildings and content cover deals as well as mortgage payment protection insurance.

As this can be carried out at the same time as sourcing mortgages or remortgages, the companies say the unified approach will encourage brokers to consider insurance earlier in the sales process.

Stuart Pender, chief executive of Paymentshield, says: “This is good news for brokers because it means they can discuss general insurance cover at point-of-sale, boosting customers’ under- standing of the products and the cover they will receive.

“In a sluggish market it is important for brokers to maximise income from each advised sale. Having access to our range of products on Inertia through Trigold’s Prospector system will help deliver this.”

Martin Colyer, managing director of Trigold, says: “We are delighted to be working with Paymentshield in our mission to offer a seamless platform for brokers.

“This will help brokers to source competitive products, meet customers’ needs and generate valuable insurance commission.”

The move follows the addition of Norwich Union’s life term cover plans to Prospector in July.
