Designed to improve processes and service levels within the industry the digitalisation of mortgage advice has seen numerous online mortgage brokers launching. One such technology provider, Burrow, was acquired by ekeeper’s parent company DPR, one of the pioneers in the sector and since the acquisition, eKeeper has been working closely with award-winning mortgage broker, One77 Mortgages to shape and integrate the technology into the traditional broker model.

Born of a view that clients had inadequate tools available to them to accurately establish the likelihood of being able to obtain a mortgage, this joint collaboration sees the successful development of one of the most technically sound digital/online eligibility and affordability tools in the UK. This technology-led digital approach will enhance the information gathering area of the advice process, improving timeframes and speeding up applications.

“By blending digital and traditional methods, we believe that this is the type of technology that traditional brokers should embrace. Saving time and effort for both the broker and borrower, implementation of this digitilisation will improve the overall mortgage journey for consumers allowing them to self serve at a time that suits them rather than a time brokers are available,” said David Bennett, Commercial Director, at eKeeper.

Commenting on the partnership, Alastair McKee, Managing Director at One 77 Mortgages, said: “With the help of eKeeper we have successfully entered the new era of digital mortgage advice for clients. We are privileged to have worked exclusively with them on this project which we hope will also allow other brokers to benefit from in the future.”
