Smartr365 partners with Halifax Intermediaries to deliver first direct, end-to-end API integration for mortgage application submission
Smartr365 has successfully integrated its market-leading platform with Halifax Intermediaries using a direct, end-to-end application programming interface (API) connection – the first of its kind in the UK mortgage industry. This will enable Halifax Intermediaries to ease and expedite the advice process for its advisers and thousands of end customers.
Smartr365 launched in January 2017 and is backed by the likes of Call Credit, E-Conveyancer and Hometrack.
Using bespoke technology, the platform streamlines the mortgage application process for all parties – purchaser, intermediary, conveyancer and lender.
It is a complete end-to-end process which uses a series of real time applications linked together in one continuous user flow; from an intuitive fact find form completed by the client, to the electronic upload and verification of documents, through to the auto-submission of applications and compliance.
Conor Murphy, founder and CEO of Smartr365, commented:
“Our aim is to make the lives of advisers easier so they can do what they do best – giving sound advice. The Smartr365 platform takes what is traditionally 10+ hours of work and condenses it down to a matter of minutes.
“We are thrilled that Halifax Intermediaries has recognised the benefits of the system and endorsed our model by partnering with us.
“Discussions with other lenders and networks are ongoing and we hope to be able to announce further integrations and partnerships in the coming months.”
Esther Dijkstra, director of strategic partnerships at Halifax Intermediaries, said:
“We are excited about partnering with Smartr365. We are constantly looking at ways to make it easier for our advisers to do business and Smartr365’s innovative technology will add considerable value in this area.”
