The UK’s reputation as a technology hub is growing, and Britain has recently been ranked as the most attractive investment destination for the coming year, as well as the third most promising country in the world for technology breakthroughs that have a global impact. The proptech industry is playing a key role in this as technological disruption reaches the UK housing market. Our CTO Rees Watkins takes a look at the UK ‘proptech sector’ and looks at some of the developments that we can expect in the near future, and what they could mean for the mortgage market.
April was likely a busy time of year for your business, as thousands of borrowers came to the end of their fixed rate mortgage deal. They had two options: either remortgage or switch onto their lender’s standard variable rate (SVR). While Easter is usually a quieter time, activity will start ramping up again as we move into summer - and advisers need to secure the best deals for these clients while generating new business at the same time. So, let’s take a look at how Smartr365 can help you during peak remortgage seasons.
Whether you’ve been in business for 10 years or 10 months, it’s likely you already have processes in place to manage your clients and the mortgage application. To a greater or lesser extent, the technology you use will support these activities. In some cases though, a considerable amount of effort, money and time may have gone into implementing systems which are not very efficient. Smartr365’s Chief Operating Officer Robin Parker explores why end-to-end solutions are increasing in popularity and how they can transform your mortgage business – turning ten hours of admin time into one.
