Mortgage Brain to launch broker iPad app


Mortgage technology solutions provider Mortgage Brain is launching a sourcing iPad app for brokers.

The app is designed to help brokers conduct whole-of-market searches for potential borrowers during the initial point-of-sale.

It features a number of mortgage calculators and a new graphing and analysis tool.

The launch is scheduled for the beginning of 2013.

Mortgage Brain chief executive Mark Lofthouse says: “We are delighted to announce the new app for mortgage brokers, which has been specifically created for the iPad and takes advantage of the latest available technology. Powered by the same technology as MortgageBrain, the app has been purposefully designed to enable intermediaries to professionally source the best mortgages available in the shortest possible time.

“In today’s rapidly changing market it is more important than ever that mortgage brokers remain competitive and are in the best possible position to meet their customers’ needs, now and into the future.”

London & Country head of communications David Hollingworth says: “This will have real benefits for those brokers required to travel to visit clients, as they will be able to access centralised information on the iPad.”

In April, Mortgage Brain launched the UKMortgages app, which is aimed at borrowers rather than brokers. It is designed to allow consumers to search and compare mortgage deals and contact a broker.
