R&SA launches extranet
Royal & SunAlliance (R&SA) has launched a new extranet for its business partners - providing them with a single access point to its range of products and services. The new extranet can be accessed at www.royalsunconnect.co.uk.
The extranet brings together many of R&SA's websites, including various commercial, personal, healthcare and life sites.
R&SA spokesman Chris Dobson said: "Prior to this launch, our business partners needed to access separate sites and in some cases remember individual passwords. For the first time, we have brought together the breadth of R&SA's services."
Online information store
Xchanging has launched the London Market Repository - an online information store giving subscribers access to supporting information needed for risk administration, processing, claims agreement and settlement.
The company said it has developed the system as a result of extensive consultation with the London Market.
Managing director John Benjamin said: "The London Market Repository is another vital step in Xchanging's programme of developments to improve the processes that underpin the efficiency of the market."
Cap Gemini Ernst & Young and Norkom Technologies have developed a detection and prediction system to help combat an estimated $3 trillion (£2.1 trillion) of global money laundering each year.
The Money Laundering Detection and Prediction (MLDAP) system analyses operational transactions and monitors suspicious money flows. It helps financial institutions to fulfil regulatory requirements.
New pet product
Direct Line Pet Insurance has launched a new Advanced product to complement its Essential policy.
The new policy covers vets' fees up to £6,000, costs towards advertising and a reward if a pet is lost or stolen, and boarding costs for a pet if the owner is hospitalised.
Such cover is increasingly necessary, especially in light of a recent Mintel report, which showed that 50% of owners need to claim on their pet policies each year.
More cover for caravans
Endsleigh has launched a new caravan policy. It offers cover for caravans when being towed or kept in storage.
Coverage includes loss of or damage to the caravan and its contents, hotel costs if the caravan is stolen far from home, and year round travelling and storage.
