Bluestone unveils new broker portal

Specialist lender Bluestone Mortgages has launched a new online broker portal, Bluelink.
Bluelink will provide a faster and more and efficient online mortgage application process.
The portal was  built in-house and has been tested with brokers to gain their feedback.
The portal gives real-time validation to save brokers’ time if an enquiry falls outside of Bluestone’s criteria.
Bluelink also lets brokers jump to different sections of the decision in principle and full application and enter information in the order they capture it, to help save time.
Bluestone managing director David Torpey says: “We made the decision to develop our broker portal in-house to enable us to have more control over the day one functionality and future development.
“Over the last few months we’ve been road testing it with some of our biggest firms because it needs to add value to their businesses, not just ours.”
