Nationwide widens app features

Nationwide has added two features to its mobile applications for intermediaries, which have been downloaded almost 9,000 times in the month since their launch.

The new features have been added to the Nationwide for Intermediaries application that focuses on residential deals, as well as The Mortgage Works app, which covers specialist lending.

Both apps will now offer a ’Find your local BDM’ function, and will also provide access to service levels from the main menu.

Downloads for the new apps exceeded 8,900 since launching a month ago, and more than 13,000 including updates.

The apps offer brokers features such as product finders, affordability calculators, comparison calculators and specialist functions related to either the residential market for the Nationwide for Intermediaries app or the buy-to-let market for the TMW app.

Nationwide group intermediary sales managing director Ian Andrew says: “Our aim was always to help intermediaries on the move to find Nationwide for Intermediaries and TMW product information quickly and easily, and make most of the features currently accessible on the Nationwide and TMW websites available to intermediaries via the mobile apps.”
