Bluestone and CLS Money add new tech to speed up mortgage processes

Bluestone Mortgages has partnered with specialist broker CLS Money to launch an integrated mortgage application service.

The API driven technology will operate via Engaged Solutions and is intended to help advisers process mortgage applications in an easy and efficient way, eliminating re-keying and maximising quality of submission.

Using the new software, advisers only need to enter client data once to obtain decisions in principle and submit full applications.

Bluestone integrated with Twenty7Tec’s ‘Mortgage Apply’ earlier this year and the lender says it intends to continue taking a “technology driven approach to enhancing the application workflow.”

Bluestone director of sales and marketing Steve Seal says: “We are committed to using technology to drive innovation and change within the mortgage market and are delighted to partner with CLS Money. Earlier this year, we were the first lender to fully integrate our facilities via the Twenty7Tec API MortgageApply system and this move was a natural next step.

“Service quality is vital to us, and we are confident the new platform will dramatically improve and speed up the mortgage application process for our advisers”

CLS Money managing director Clayton Shipton says the firm “consistently look at ways in which we can use the latest advancements in technology, to enhance clients’ experience of applying for a mortgage.”

“Utilising the full capacity of our API enabled CRM Engaged has allowed us to keep at the forefront of our industry and use leading technology software like Twenty7tecs ‘Mortgage Apply’,” he says.
