UK, May 14 2021: Mortgage technology expert Mortgage Brain has delivered a
new, bespoke API for Bath Building Society that provides a streamlined journey for
mortgage advisers using the society’s website.
The new API is the result of a collaborative approach and provides advisers with the ability to carry out detailed criteria searches based on their client. Advisers can source products from Bath:
- by category ‒ which encompasses factors like whether the client is adverse or not, or the property type
- by topic ‒ for example whether they are expats or based on credit scoring
- by keyword
What’s more, the search works dynamically, so search results are refined as the adviser types.
The project follows Bath’s recent redevelopment of its borrower-facing portal, which was aimed at delivering a refined user experience. Bath then worked closely with the Criteria Brain team ‒ Mortgage Brain’s criteria-based sourcing solution ‒ to develop a solution which would allow them to update all of the lender’s criteria on Criteria Brain, while using this information to power the borrower portal.
Earlier this year, Mortgage Brain worked with Harpenden Building Society to develop a comprehensive new affordability calculator for the mutual’s intermediary-facing website, which has proven so successful that it is now being utilised internally by Harpenden staff for assessing Decisions in Principle (DIP).
Ben Hutchings, Mortgage Sales Manager at Bath Building Society said: “We are delighted with the results of our collaboration with Mortgage Brain. Everyone at Bath Building Society is passionate about delivering the best possible user journey for borrowers and advisers alike, and by partnering with Mortgage Brain we have been able to implement the sort of insightful technology that makes that possible.”
Neil Wyatt, Sales & Marketing Director at Mortgage Brain, said: “Collaborative projects like this are a point of pride for the team at Mortgage Brain. We are proud we can help lenders to champion what’s important to them, using our skills and experience to develop solutions that deliver a smooth and streamlined experience to advisers and their clients.”
