e.surv completes roll out of integrated broadband network

Mortgage valuation firm e.surv has completed the roll out of a secure integrated broadband network in more than 300 locations across England and Northern Ireland.

The firm says it is aiming to integrate the next generation of technology which will serve to further enhance its proposition. It says it is committed to investing more than £5m in IT development over the next 18 months.

Paul Latham, e.surv managing director, says: “e.surv&#39s investment in this broadband network enhances its existing infrastructure, benefiting both its clients and staff. It introduces added flexibility for mortgage valuers who are now able to access records,and dictate and sign off reports electronically from any location, be it at home, in the car, the office or on-site.

“Our clients are already seeing the advantages of our network, primarily in terms of faster turnaround times. Our clients are absolutely right to expect turnaround to be measured in hours, not days, and e.surv continues to lead the industry in service delivery. We have been able to reduce turnaround times whilst volumes of business have increased.”
