CIExpert has upgraded its functionality and added a number of enhancements to make it easier for advisers to compare Critical Illness (CI) policies.
New features include the addition of all Axa Lifecare, Royal Liver and Skandia policies for historic comparison and panel functionality requested by networks.
The site also allows comparisons against white label policies such as Tesco.
CIExpert is an independent organisation that provides an analysis service to assist advisers in choosing the most appropriate policy for their clients
Alan Lakey, director of CIExpert (pictured) said: "The volume of CI policy changes in 2013 has brought some real improvements. While we welcome these developments they make the advisers task even more complex, hence our service becomes vital."
"For the adviser, lacking confidence in the compliance process can inhibit them from advising on protection business. Understanding the impact of conditions policy wordings is challenging, however armed with CIExpert many advisers now have the confidence to increase their business."
Tom Baigrie, chief executive of Lifesearch said: "These enhancements continue to enable our advisers to carry out comprehensive research in a highly time-efficient manner. It allows us to present a clear and concise balance of quality versus cost to our clients, which supports them in making an informed decision."
