Enterprise Finance has revealed that its new broker portal, Apex, has been accepting new business since 21 March.
Apex allows users to source a loan or refer a potential client to Enterprise, as well as providing real-time online case tracking and case completion.
One-time data entry gives whole-of-market access for direct sourcing of second charge mortgages, or brokers can refer to the Enterprise Finance team. Brokers can get quick comparative quotes, apply or refer cases, scan and upload any documents they have instead of posting, and receive email case progress alerts as well as reviewing status online.
Harry Landy (pictured), sales director at Enterprise Finance, said: “Apex is a huge step for us, as part of our commitment to making specialist mortgage broking as easy and as financially rewarding as possible for our broker partners. It gives our sales team and our underwriters the capacity to match expected business growth in the post-MCD world, at the same time as revolutionising the experience our brokers have with us.
“Brokers will no longer have to waste their valuable time calling us just to chase progress and to get visibility over their cases. Instead they can focus discussions with us on ensuring the best outcome for their clients. Further, Apex is fully set-up for compliance, taking the pain and cost out of the advisory or referral process.
“Finally, this is just the beginning. Over the coming months we’ll be rolling out a continuing programme of new features to make Apex an even more powerful tool, such as capability to source 1st charge quotes for comparative purposes.”
James Tucker, managing director of sourcing developers Twenty7Tec, added: “We have worked with the team at Enterprise on this project for some months now, and it’s clear that they intimately understand the way that technology can be used to drive the best possible outcomes for both intermediary and end client.”
