Sesame users switching to Trigold

Sesame is committed to offering its members the best software and services and made the decision to make Trigold available to its members to ensure the best choice.

Andy Young, head of mortgage services of Sesame, says: “This is a clear endorsement of our decision to make Trigold available to our members. With regulation almost upon us, we wanted to ensure that our members had the systems that they felt comfortable with both in terms of day-to-day usage and compliance protection.

“Although we were aware how popular Trigold is, with all the pressures on mortgage advisers at the moment we didn&#39t expect such a rapid conversion. Advisers are obviously thinking very carefully about the software they trust to support their businesses under FSA regulation.”

Bill Safran, joint managing director of Trigold, says: “We&#39re obviously delighted to welcome so many Sesame members to Trigold over such a short period of time. We have always maintained a focus on delivering software that complements and not complicates the mortgage sales process. The fact that so many advisers have made the switch so close to Mortgage Day is a massive endorsement of the ease of use of the system.”
