Abbey and Trigold merge IT systems

Abbey for Intermediaries and Trigold have merged their back office IT systems to allow brokers to place applications directly with the lender.

This means brokers using Trigold’s e-trading centre will not have to re-key data from the local Trigold IT system to the Abbey Introducer portal.

Brokers will also be able to submit applications without leaving the Trigold system and will be updated on changes to the Abbey’s product ranges.

Clive Kornitzer, chief operating officer at AfI, says: “At a time in the market when brokers are looking to place business at break-neck speeds, it is our responsibility as a lender to do everything we can to speed up the mortgage application process.

“Integrating our IT functions with leading sourcing systems like Trigold is one such way we hope to achieve this.”

David Aylmer, business development and marketing director at Trigold, says: “Today’s modern broker should rightly expect systems to communicate with each other to deliver an end-to-end mortgage application process.

“We’re delighted to have worked with Abbey to create this integration which will make applying for Abbey products quicker and easier.”
