UK-based Barnsley Building Society has selected SDS' Maps software for mortgage application processing.
Barnsley Building Society has nine branches in the Yorkshire area, backed by an agency network covering North Yorkshire to Warwickshire.
SDS Maps is a fully integrated, thin-client solution, handling mortgage applications from customer enquiry through to completion. The system features a broker portal where IFAs and introducers can log-on and access product searches, create new applications, track the status of applications in progress and view commissions earned and pending.
Mortgage search facilities also enable potential customers can find out how much they can borrow and details of the mortgage products that best suit their needs.
The system features integrated 'mortgage application specific' workflow that systemises the underwriting process. A task creation and management system monitors the whole process and allocates tasks to the most appropriate member of staff in order of timed priorities.
Steve Lofthouse, assistant general manager (systems) at Barnsley, says: “SDS Maps has the flexibility and Web-enabled technology we were looking for and combines all our mortgage processes into one system.”
