JCS Advanced Financial Planning and Administration Software Integrates Norwich Union Contract Enquiry Real-Time Valuations Service

JCS Advanced Financial Planning and Administration Software is pleased to announce the implementation of Real-Time Valuations, encompassing contract value, fund holdings and fund values, with Norwich Union. Their customers can now service clients with Norwich Union policies in real time by providing up-to-date valuations directly from their desktops.

London, United Kingdom, December 08, 2007 --(PR.com)-- JCS’ Electronic Data Integration feature allows the importation of a vast diversity of file types and formats. Their Contract Enquiry Service, which is part of this feature, provides a seamless system-to-system based connectivity solution that allows the request and receipt of up-to-date contract and valuation information electronically and updates client records directly. This means that there is no longer a need to request information by telephone or email. All client valuations can be accessed and retained within JCS rather than accessing information from Norwich Union’s extranet site and then manually re-keying the data.

Barry Pitfield, Managing Director of JCS, says:
“We are pleased to provide this service with Norwich Union, which for our customers means potential new income streams from improved client service levels and a real saving in terms of cost from improved efficiency. Once set up, it provides single-click real-time valuations of an entire portfolio. We are making good progress on linking to further Product Providers - already live are Cofunds, Funds Network, Friends Provident, Scottish Mutual, Scottish Widows, Selestia, Skandia and Transact.”

Dave Hall, E Business Development Manager at Norwich Union, says:
“We are delighted that JCS have launched our automated valuation service. The number of online valuations being carried out is continually growing, and I am sure that JCS' users will find this new service highly valuable in enabling them to offer an even more efficient service to our mutual customers."

Giles Harrold, Harrold Financial Planning - long-standing customer of JCS, says:
“…quite simply, superb!”
