Frank Eve Consulting and Mortgage Strategy have teamed up to launch the 2004 Mortgage Lenders' Intermediary Websites Benchmark Study and the Mortgage Strategy Technology Awards.
The Intermediary Websites Benchmark Study will be the only survey in the UK that analyses how lenders and intermediaries use internet technology to speed the lending process, while the awards will be the first in the intermediary mortgage market to reward lenders solely for their technological achievements.
The study, exclusive to Mortgage Strategy, will also be the first to undertake detailed research into how intermediaries use technology and who they believe provides the best online facility in terms of both case submissions and service.
Frank Eve, managing director of Frank Eve Consulting, says: “I'm delighted to be working alongside MS for this year's study which will show what separates the leading lenders from the rest.”
Lenders who participate will have the opportunity to have their websites linked to the survey pages on the MS website, the most-used broker site in the market, registering nearly 3 million page impressions in the past month alone.
Mortgage Strategy will use information from the survey to establish the Mortgage Strategy Technology Awards.
Patrick Ponsford, MS publisher, says: “The Mortgage Strategy Technology Awards will follow a similar format to the successful Mortgage Strategy Awards and will use data from the survey to reward the industry's best lenders when it comes to technology.”
Firms interested in participating in the survey or purchasing a copy should contact Frank Eve Consulting at 0207 016 9700.
