An ‘industry-first’ app has been introduced to connect borrowers to brokers and introducers.
Available for free on both iOS and Android, Smartr365’s HomeBuyer app is designed to give borrowers more choice and control in the mortgage process.
Users can scan a QR code or tap a Near-Field Communication (NFC) chip in an estate agent window, on a property search site or in an email to automatically enter their details or connect instantly with their mortgage broker to begin the application process.
Brokers and introducers can generate QR codes, weblinks and NFC chips unique to their business at no additional cost.
Client data is seamlessly shared from the app with the broker, allowing them to work efficiently on the case via the platform.
Conor Murphy, chief executive officer at Smartr365, comments: “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.”
He says the announcement 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.”
Murphy concludes: “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.”
