What to do if something you use from Mercury 5 doesn't appear to be present
We're currently working towards completing the remaining functionality in the Mercury Nexus platform. Some Mercury 5 features may have been left out deliberately. The appropriate forum is the Broker Suggestion Portal. Simply list the feature and why it was valuable to you. Other brokers can also comment and vote for the suggestion.

Understanding Mercury Nexus
The new platform is made up of a suite of applications. Each with a specific purpose. They contain many features you know, plus a whole lot more. You can jump to any one application directly if you need to do a specific thing, or you can navigate between them effortlessly.
We've created a whole new interface (the thing that you see and interact with) but you're data (the stuff behind the scenes) remains the same. It's like having two remotes to your television, but one has a bunch of new features that lets you do things in your TV you couldn't before.
So moving over to the new platform is easy. You simply log in and you're ready to go. You can even switch between Mercury 5 and the new platform without having to re-enter data.
The main landing page for Mercury, this is where your journey begins. From here you can jump into any app and launch seamlessly between other applications.
The CRM is the muscle of Mercury. Home to People and Opportunity records and all their associated data. This is where you will spend the bulk of your time. The contact and opportunities input fields have a new clean layout, simplified naming and smarter data linking- to prevent data from having to be entered more than once.
The CRM application also includes a KANBAN board, allowing you to track the status of your opportunities visually whilst still keeping the workflows and status changes in tact.
The sister-application to the CRM; the appropriately named Research app is home to the product tools, services and calculators and is used in conjunction with the CRM to research and analyse products and perform calculations. It's the secondary power-house behind Mercury. Taking the complexity in loan servicing and visualising it in a new easy to use interface.
The Commissions application contains the core functionality we have in Mercury5, yet is enhanced by the powerful grids and improved interface. Using the new grids you'll be able to easily sort your commissions data and customise the way you want to display it. Allowing you greater visibility and insight into your Commissions.
The Customer Centre does not sit on the apps page but can be accessed from the CRM. This feature allows you to manage the collection of your customer's information. You are able to push the data contained in your contact and opportunity records into the Customer Centre, where your customer can log in using 2-factor authentication and update their personal details. As your customer is updating this data your seeing your CRM update in real time.
The DocCentre does not sit on the apps page but can be accessed from the CRM. This feature allows you to electronically collect supporting documentation from your clients. DocCentre simplifies the collection of supporting documentation by allowing you to create templated requests, which can be cloned and sent to new clients.
You can easily review documents and give feedback via conversations, and when you approve the documents you need they'll be automatically attached to your opportunity.
True to its name, the admin application is the central location for you to manage your Mercury. Beginning with the existing functionality in Mercury5, the Admin app will expand to include the enhanced questionnaires, branding and customisation to name just a few.
Expanding on the original compliance tab in Mercury5, this new application will centralise PD, complaints, entertainment register, and MARs Corrective actions to name a few.
