Smartr365 has launched a HomeBuyer app for consumers and introducers which is designed to give borrowers more choice and control over the mortgage process.
By scanning a QR code or tapping a Near-Field Communication (NFC) chip in an estate agent window, on a property search site or in an email, customers can automatically and remotely enter their details, which are shared with their mortgage broker to begin the application process.
The app is native to both iOS and Android and is connected with the Smartr365 platform.
Conor Murphy, chief executive at Smartr365, said: “Keeping pace with consumer demand is paramount in our service-first industry, and it was a natural step for us to find a way to bring all the benefits of Smartr365 to a borrower’s fingertips.
“Today’s announcement builds on our ambition to make each step of the mortgage journey better, and is the latest in a long list of developments to the platform. Borrowers and introducers have never been able to interact with a broker in this way before, and we’re confident that this type of technology is the future of the mortgage process.
“By seamlessly linking borrowers, introducers and brokers, the HomeBuyer app makes up the final piece of the puzzle for a truly frictionless and end-to-end mortgage journey through Smartr365.
“More than that, it democratises the mortgage process, giving consumers more choice and information that they’ve ever had before. Brokers benefit too, as they can now acquire leads and all required details through the app at no additional cost, and without lifting a finger, creating an experience that will generate repeat business time and time again.”
Brokers and introducers can generate QR codes, weblinks and NFC chips.
