This new partnership sets out to expand Smartr365’s lender connections, following integrations with Nationwide in June 2019 and Halifax in March last year.
The integration will give Smartr365 users multi-DIP functionality for both new lenders, and advisers will have access to any new lenders connected with Mortgage Engine in future.
Mortgage Engine launched to the market earlier this week.
Conor Murphy (pictured), CEO of Smartr365, said simplifying the application process was a vital step, and that started with automating DIPs.
“We look forward to the future development of the partnership as we work together to improve the mortgage process,” he said.
Cloe Atkinson, managing director at Mortgage Engine, added: “We launched Mortgage Engine to help improve efficiencies at every stage of the mortgage application process.
“The platform will also enable brokers to track their cases and get minute-by-minute updates on the status of applications.”
“Through Mortgage Engine, Smartr365 will immediately reap the rewards of a faster application process with multi-DIP potential, and advisers will have access to even more lenders in the future as we establish new connections,” she said.
Live testing is set to begin in December, with Smartr365 set to have full access to Santander and NatWest’s services from the end of January 2020.
The partnership has aims to eventually expand beyond DIPs to cover the full mortgage application process with all lenders accessible through the platform.
