Workplace pension provider Smart Pension has launched a personalised sign-up feature that allows advisers to create their own unique pension gateway.
The gateway or sign-up page can be customised with adviser branding and comes with a unique URL that can be supplied to existing and new clients.
The clever feature is part of the auto enrolment specialist’s adviser platform, and means advisers, accountants and payroll bureaus can effectively create a white-label auto enrolment area for their clients to sign-up to.
Will Wynne, Smart Pension MD and co-founder, said:
"This new feature will help to save a lot of time to busy advisers whilst giving them a slick, professional-looking sign-up page which sends clients directly into Smart Pension.
"It means their clients can do some of the early work, and we will simply notify them via email when a business has enrolled into their own account. They can then manage them as usual.
"This adds to the bulk import facility we announced recently which allows advisers to upload clients in high volume. We are always looking for new ways to use technology to help our advisers save time and money whilst increasing productivity."
The new feature can be tailored to include billing information or be sector-specific.
Smart Pension has been awarded a 5-star rating by independent research company Defaqto in recognition of its innovative platform, as well as Master Trust Assurance Framework accreditation (MAF) and it is a featured provider on TPR's website.
Earlier this year Smart Pension announced strong performance across its default investment funds in 2016, with growth of over 19 percent after costs for its Lifestyle Default 1 investment fund, in which the vast majority of its members' pension funds are invested.
