ING Direct upgrades to Omiga system

ING Direct has upgraded to the Omiga mortgage processing software with the help of Vertex.

As a result, ING Direct’s mortgage origination platform has been upgraded from a VB6 based code to a .NET solution.

Robert Coyle, managing director of financial services at Vertex, says the new platform was chosen because it fits with ING Direct’s existing technology while also extending its mortgage capability.

He adds: “A smooth transition was critical to the project’s success and it was delivered thanks to all parties working incredibly closely throughout the project lifespan.”

A spokesperson for ING Direct says: “Deploying the .NET upgrade has been an important step for ING Direct UK as it provides a springboard for future mortgage developments.  

“We are pleased to have had Vertex’s support and in depth knowledge throughout ensuring the transition was smooth and hassle free for us and our customers.”
