To buy or not to buy: that is the question many mortgage advisers ask themselves when thinking about adopting new technology. As the technology revolution has swept through mortgageland, one thing has become unavoidably clear – for advisers to keep up, they need to adopt a sophisticated tech platform. But does that mean you need to invest your precious time and money in building your own, or would buying a one-size-fits-all platform be a better option for your business? Find out why buying is better here.

Building your own system can seem appealing at first, but unless you have an unlimited amount of time and money, it’s not usually the right way to go. Full bespoke systems will cost upwards of £10 million and take years to perfect. Worst of all, what if the next tech revolution has begun by the time you finish?

So, what do you do? It comes down to this: would you spend time and money turning your Nokia into an iPhone – or just go out and buy the iPhone? While taking a hands-on approach is undoubtedly attractive, at the end of the day, time is an adviser’s biggest asset and we can help you capitalise on this. Not only does Smartr365 immediately provide you with all the tools you need to keep up, we also regularly maintain and update the platform, with weekly improvements, ensuring you have the most up-to-date benefits and can solve problems quickly.


Unless your firm has 100 advisers or more, buying-in the best is the only way to go. Find out more about how we can help you save time and money through tech by scheduling a demo today.
