Loans on menu at IFonline cafe

IFonline is taking its cyber cafe-style exhibition stand across the country in a series of IFA roadshows.

The online mortgage broker says a cyber cafe is more innovative than a traditional exhibition stand as it aims to provide IFAs with a relaxed environment to experience the IFonline mortgage trading platform.

The specially designed stand has PCs displaying the system, with demonstrators on hand to help with any queries.

It will take to the road as part of a series of IFonline road shows being held across the country.

The series starts on Nov ember 14 in Belfast and covers 15 cities, including Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow and South ampton, before finis hing in London on December 8.

IFonline is a business-to-business mortgage trading platform which allows brokers to search, select and apply for a mortgage and track its pro gress through to completion.

Managing director Barry Meeks says: “Early feedback on the trading platform has been overwhelmingly positive but this is just the beginning.

“The next few months will see full case tracking, credit scoring and a host of other enh ancements to make the lives of all parties in the house-buying process a lot easier.”
