Bento 645: Your site, your choice

When Panacea Adviser (Panacea) was launched in 2007, the project ethos was to create a site that you could use easily, quickly, with useful, timely and relevant information from a whole array of financial services provider and support firms made available all in one trusted time-saving place.

Simple eh!

However over the last nine years as the site has grown to over 80,000 pages and it has become harder to find information and to easily provide what you may be looking for.

With that in mind we have spent the last six months looking at redesigning our site to make it even easier and as simple as possible to use in order to help you run your day-to-day business smarter.

All New Home Page

Now the home page includes all the latest provider product news as well as latest videos, industry events that will be taking place that you can attend, our latest blog, and details of anything new that has been added to the site. The home page will change daily so make sure you bookmark it and check back regularly!

All New Navigation

All the main navigation areas of the site can now be found along the top of the site, allowing you to explore either by:

News & Views – Here you can find ALL the latest news and views for financial advisers and paraplanners from Panacea Adviser, Product Providers and Service Providers.  Read the latest or past editions of the Bento Bulletin or click on one of the categories list to view stories according to type or partner firm.

Tools & Resources – split out by tools, calculators, literature, market insights and videos and webcasts. Each of these pages is then split by product type be it pensions, investments, protection etc. So, for instance if you want to find the latest protection calculators or literature around Auto-Enrolment its is simple and easy to find what you are looking for!

Learning & Development – The Learning & Development area of the site provides huge amounts of exam assistance, learning support materials and expert opinions to assist with your training and CPD needs all in one place.

Business Development – The Panacea Business Development zone provides a range of support materials, tools, resources and advice to help you make the most out of your business.  This is even broken down by General content and links specific to investments, retirement and technology so you can pin-point exactly what you are looking for.

Events & Webinars – Here you will find a list of all our partner’s forthcoming events both of the live variety as well as webcasts & webinars.  Plus links to BrightTalk webcasts and Panacea’s own channel.

If you know where you want to go then just click on the yellow ‘all’ button and this will bring down all the main areas of the site and you can get to where you want to be in one click!

All new My Panacea

We have redesigned the Panacea Extranet and rebranded it My Panacea as the new site is all about you!  This can be accessed from the top left hand side of the site.  Here you can change your email preferences, including tailoring the content you want to receive via the bento bulletins and on the home page. It also holds any CPD content you may have saved, allows you automatic access to MyTouchstone and provides a number of special offers, negotiated by us just for you.

We think this is the very best Panacea website so far, developed from great adviser, paraplanner and provider feedback over the last 12 months. We hope you do too.

The proof of Panacea’s value to advisers is demonstrated by having attracted over 80,000 unique visitors in 2015, so take a look, enjoy it and let us know your preferences today – and don’t forget to let your adviser and paraplanner colleagues know about the site too!
