Almost 2000 users have registered to use the system so far, with over 250 users registering in the last two days.

The Orbiter system lists products from over 120 lenders, including direct products, and is updated four times a day.

Andrew Brown, managing director of Orbiter, says: “We are delighted our system is now available to The Whitechurch Network’s advisers.
