Simplify Criteria Sourcing

As customer circumstances change quickly and their cases become more complex, your job becomes more difficult and time-consuming. Criteria Brain leads the way with its simplicity, standardisation of terms, and its ability to quickly search up to six criteria at a time.

Criteria Brain has had a substantial increase both in the number of lenders on the platform and the number of intermediaries using Criteria Brain over the past 12 months. A host of new lenders have joined Criteria Brain over the last couple of months, with more to follow.

Users of Criteria Brain users enjoy an unparalleled view into the criteria requirements of the nation's lenders, with the over 88 lenders that are live on the platform accounting for an excess of 95%* of the UK intermediary first charge residential mortgage market.

  • Its easy-to-use and intuitive interface helps you quickly and efficiently match the needs of your customers with those of the lenders, based on their criteria
  • As an online solution, so you can use it anywhere
  • Major lenders already live with more to follow

What our customers say:

"Today I had already sourced for a client as I knew the specific lender criteria on income types. However, I input the details on Affordability Brain to use the software as an experiment for the same client; if I had done this earlier in the day, I would've saved a lot of time, as the results confirmed my findings in just a few data input screens. This is without doubt, the best facility I have ever used."

"Brilliant! What a fantastic system, this will save hours per month and the report looks fantastic."
