Coventry for intermediaries has added a web chat feature, CFI Chat, to give brokers an additional channel to reach an advisor to answer policy or product questions.

CFI Chat will be operated by advisors, not a bot, and phone lines remain open to brokers, to support more complex queries.

Keith Williams, intermediary operations manager at Coventry for intermediaries, said: “In times like these, we want to spend more time speaking to brokers, not less.

“We successfully deployed home-working telephony early in the pandemic, and we are proud to provide one of the fastest phone support services in the industry.

“We are here for our brokers. CFI chat is our latest tool, but we are always committed to being a lender that keeps quality service at the forefront.”
