Openwork to launch protection app

Openwork is launching a mobile app that enables advisers to obtain protection quotes via Apple devices.

The app, which was developed in conjunction with Assureweb, will allow advisers to access quotes from Openwork’s panel of protection advisers or from its single-tie proposition, Zurich Plus.

It will be available to advisers in mid-February.

Paul Shearman, mortgage, protection and general insurance proposition director at Openwork, says: “Tablet use has been rising across the network and this app will significantly enhance the accessibility of protection quotes for our advisers as part of our on-going ‘ease of doing business’ initiative.”
