Accord Mortgages launches second phase of its integration with Trigold

Accord Mortgages has launched the second phase of its integration with Trigold with the creation of a seamless online connection for full mortgage applications through Trigold’s E-trading centre.

With over 50 leading lenders able to receive online applications via the E-trading centre, Trigold is the undisputed leader in mortgage trading and the E-Trading Centre is the most widely-supported mortgage-trading platform.

This latest development between Accord and Trigold builds on the success of the integrated decision in principle system, launched earlier in the year, which allows intermediaries who utilise the prospector AAA sourcing system to proceed directly to an online AIP.

Linda Will, managing director of Accord, says: “We receive around three quarters of our business electronically and can clearly recognise that intermediaries are now looking to a trading platform such as ETC to provide a complete end-to-end mortgage solution.

“Having entered a significant amount of client data into the system during the sourcing process, it is a natural progression to offer a seamless link to full mortgage applications.

“This development completely removes any unnecessary duplication of data entry and means that advisors can access our range of products quickly and simply.

“The mortgage market is a highly dynamic and technological environment and the seamless link between the prospector sourcing system and the E-trading centre makes the Trigold system a driving force in streamlining the application process.”

Bill Safran, chief executive, of Trigold, says: “Accord has a reputation for innovation and award-winning service right across the market.

“Furthermore, their use of technology in delivering their proposition is recognised and widely acclaimed.

“Online applications deliver a host of benefits, which are plain to see the very first time that they complete the process.

“This incentive will encourage scores of brokers to see for themselves the benefits and become real converts to the online revolution.

“The integration of full mortgage applications makes it easy for intermediaries to access Accord’s online only products and to earn the enhanced procuration fee payable for online business.”
