Threesixty signs deal with eConveyancer

Support service provider Threesixty services has signed a deal with eConveyancer giving its mortgage broker clients access to the system.

The service will allow Threesixtys clients to select and appoint conveyancers, assess the cost of cases and then monitor their progress online.

IFAs can give their clients access to the access to the system through their own websites, reducing the number of calls. The advisers will receive 100 for every case completed through the system.

Threesixty partner Phil Young says: The system meets all of our key criteria. It is easy to use and requires no software installation. It generates a useful revenue stream as brokers receive payment of 100 per case that is managed through the system. Most importantly, it frees up the intermediaries time to write more business by removing the headache of clients chasing brokers chasing solicitors.
