Alliance Trust to revamp platform in 2015

Alliance Trust Savings has announced a deal with online trading technology provider GBST to revamp its platform proposition for new intermediated business from early 2015.

According to an announcement from the company, the technology will be integrated within the ATS business to improve its customer and intermediary proposition, make operations more efficient and support the growth of the business.

Alliance Trust aims to launch the new technology for new business from intermediaries in early 2015 and then migrate existing customers later in the year.

Patrick Mill, managing director of ATS, said: “With the platform market expected to quadruple in size by 2020, there is a tremendous amount of growth opportunity for those providers who are able to adapt and respond to customers’ changing needs.

“The overwhelming feedback from ATS customers and intermediaries is that while they believe in our products, our pricing structure and our customer service, we need to enhance our platform functionality in order to support their future requirements.”
