UK-based insurer Aviva has launched a new iPad application for its online trading platform, Fast Trade, to enable brokers to ‘quote and buy’ online in less than five minutes.

The new application has been designed to enable brokers to offer a personalized quote when on the move.

Aviva intermediary operations director Sam Hudson said, currently, Fast Trade offers 13 commercial auto-rated products online.

"Our aim is to be at the forefront of the commercial online market so developing the app was the next logical step to providing access to quicker, slicker trading online," Hudson added.

The Fast Trade also provides brokers with full cycle functionality from quote to renewal, instant access to documentation and a fast-tracked referral process within one hour.

Aviva provides insurance, savings and investment products to its customers.
