Crystal, one of the UK's leading software providers to mortgage brokers, has been awarded the prestigious Microsoft Gold Partner status. And, its Momentum client management system was critical to the Gold award.
The award recognises key broker benefits:
· Cost efficiencies - as the software will be current for longer
· Reliability - software must exceed Microsoft's high standards
· Data security
· Integration - software has universal connectivity with other broker applications
· Advice - harmonising business requirements with technology capabilities
· Microsoft approved staff
To gain Gold status, Crystal's Momentum system was independently tested by a Microsoft approved test centre and had to have been deployed and successful, across a number of corporate clients.
This accreditation recognises Crystal's competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies and is a further endorsement of the Momentum product as the right choice for brokers.
Patrick Shuker, director at Crystal said: "The two main concerns that advisers have when buying and using software is its shelf life and reliability as the former costs them money and the latter can lose them money. Crystal understands this, which is why our Momentum system is vigorously tested internally, with users and by third parties; and also why we are delighted that Microsoft has recognised our successful record of developing software and awarded us Gold Partner status.
