AMP New Zealand has launched an Internet-based quote and buy facility for term life insurance.
EZlife is available on www.amp.co.nz or through AMP advisers.
It takes people through short-term questions and then gives life insurance quotes.
If the quote is accepted, payment can be made online by credit card, through a secure server.
AMP eBuisness manager Chris Barker says the launch is part of an e-business strategy that includes already-launched general insurance, Internet banking and other products yet to come.
Meanwhile, Bank Direct says its CRM solution from Onyx has made "a phenomenal success" of its recent launch of Low Interest Visa.
BankDirect general manager James Mitchell says customers were contacted by email and invited to apply through their Web site, giving fast fulfilment of orders.
