Pink’s revamped broker site goes live

Pink Home Loans’ website for the intermediary market went live last week.

The site has been redesigned to improve navigation, make information more accessible and give intermediaries a greater understanding of what Pink offers.

The website will give existing introducer members better access to other income revenues, with more information online. This should reduce the need to make a phone call to Pink.

The site’s My Account Tool provides details of the introducer’s business development manager, a case tracking overview and an area to store all of their CPD information.

Appointed representatives will also have access to all the agency codes they require to submit business to insurance providers.

David Copland, marketing director at Pink, says: “These improvements have been made following feedback from existing and new users of the site. One of the areas which has been changed following this feedback is the mortgages section.

“The lender panels have been split into three pages, direct, packaged and branded, making it easier to read and print out mortgage product information.”
