Prudential's e-business helpdesk can help clarify the format of any specific policy numbers. The helpdesk can also provide a "bulk data download" at the beginning of this process to help "cleanse" your existing data so that the messages will be recognised by Prudential. Finally the helpdesk can help with the linking in of your office postcodes if you have multiple offices that the policies are registered to.
If you need help with any of these services please contact the eBusiness Helpdesk on 0808 234 5200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Calls may be monitored or recorded for quality and security purposes.
Prudential support industry standard Contract Enquiry links, which allow advisers to have real time valuation data sent direct to their back-office system. We currently have this in place with the following commonly used systems:
Making sure that the data you hold in your back office system is up-to-date, accurate and in the right format will help reduce any potential errors and speed up your online processing of business - which all makes for happy clients. To make sure you use the correct policy formats please refer to the table below -

We do not currently support contract enquiry valuations for Life products (i.e endowments), Retirement Annuity Contracts, or Income Drawdown policies.
Contract enquiry messages will work successfully if:
If the contract enquiry message "fails" a message will be sent back clarifying the reason for the failure.
To make contract enquiry work correctly it is essential that the policy number sent (in the contract enquiry message) is in the correct format.
With regard to the Investment bonds, the policy number format should be as shown in the table and the policy number should not show the segment references at the end of the policy number (i.e. policy shown on your records as 123456T000-019 needs to have the segment numbers removed so that it just shows as 123456T in the message that is sent).
There are a small number of Bond and Personal Pension policy formats that are not supported currently.
Bond policy numbers with 8 digit numeric formats and begin with a 6 i.e. an example policy number would be 60123456.
Pension policies that begin with the letters "POO" and then have 6 numeric digits i.e. an example policy number would be POO123456.
