Platform online facility a hit

Platform has revealed its online application facility clickapplication has resulted in over 1,000 applications in the first three weeks since going live.

Platform launched the facility to enable brokers to submit a full application through the lender’s website.

Paul Hunt, head of marketing at Platform, says: “The launch of clickapplication has been hugely successful and underlines the vital role that online technology plays in today’s intermediary mortgage market. We are already seeing over 50% of all directly submitted applications transacted online.”
