UK-based MCI Club, a mortgage club, has announced today the extension of the free eKeeper Lite CRM solution to brokers amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The UK FinTech eKeeper’s CRM solution conducts Anti-Money Laundering checks and obtains consumer credit reports and is powered by Experian.

Phil Whitehouse, head of The MCI Club, commented, “The MCI Club continues to deliver value and capability to the intermediary sector. Here we are providing a much-needed tool into the hands of every adviser in the UK, regardless of their current technology or registration status. Far too often, we hear about advisers being caught out by not having the right information at the right time. Through this tool, advisers can now access AML and credit report data to continue delivering great service and customer outcomes”.

The solution is a lighter version of eKeeper’s full CRM system that allows the users to benefit from cloud-based data and file storage. The CRM solution’s existing clients have access to AML checks and consumer credit reports, along with other features of the CRM.

David Bennett, Commercial Director of the eKeeper Group, confirmed that “This is another first for the mortgage intermediary market in unprecedented circumstances. Our partnership with Experian is allowing us to deliver a technology solution for the benefit of the UK financial services space.

He added, “A credit report is an invaluable resource that, in most cases, the broker is reliant on the client obtaining and sharing in a timely manner. By placing control into the hands of the broker, we reduce the time taken to effectively service a client using the best and most reliable information available.”

MCI mortgage club provides UK mortgage intermediaries with access to lenders, insurers and products with market-leading terms.

The eKeeper Group is a FinTech and software house, developing solutions for the UK intermediary and lending sectors. It was acquired by the DPR Group in 2017.
