Platform to launch new online facility

Platform has today announced that it will be launching its new online application tool clickapplication on Monday.

It says the facility will save intermediaries time by enabling them to submit a full application through the companys website by also using its online pre-sale KFI and decision tool, clickKFI and clickdecision.

In addition, to raise funds for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent, the company will be donating ten pence for every application submitted online until the end of February next year.

Platform head of marketing Paul Hunt says: This tool is a significant milestone in the companys ongoing ecommerce strategy as it allows the whole sales process to be completed online for the first time and follows on from the incredible success of clickdecision, which has now given over 130,000 decisions.

We wish to remain at the forefront of the specialist mortgage market and the launch of clickapplication, along with our recent criteria enhancements, will enable us to maintain this position with intermediaries.
