eTech were crowned winners of the Innovation (Non-Lender) and Best Use of Technology (Non-Lender) categories at the 2018 Mortgage Finance Gazette Awards.
The winners were announced last night (14 November) at the Royal College of Physicians in London at an informal gathering to collect their trophies.
The Mortgage Finance Gazette Awards are held annually and started in 1999 to celebrate innovation and achievement within the mortgage industry and are open to all mortgage lenders and suppliers.
This is the first year eTech have entered these awards and were overjoyed to be recognised and pronounced as winners in not one, but two categories.
Our submission for the Innovation Award category focused on our new Buy To Let Hub software, an integrated workflow management system for the buy-to-let portfolio landlord market, which addresses the recent PRA changes impacting portfolio landlords. Our system reduces the administration burden now faced by brokers, whilst providing a robust platform for lenders to automate accurate portfolio stress tests.
Our submission for the Best Use of Technology Award category focused on our mobile Survey App and desktop Survey Hub, providing independent surveying firms and surveying panel managers with a powerful workflow management solution alongside an elegant and intuitive surveying tool, used by RICS surveyors for the completion of Mortgage Valuations and Homebuyer Reports. Both systems improve efficiencies, enhance productivity and mitigate risk.
Mark Blackwell, lending and surveying services director at eTech commented:
“Winning both these awards is fantastic recognition for eTech and a reflection of our determination and commitment as a technology supplier to the mortgage industry.
To win two awards is especially rewarding considering the high calibre of finalists. We have worked extremely hard over the past few years, bringing innovative solutions to market and working collaboratively with multiple clients and partners. Winning these awards is also testament to the great people here at eTech, who are at the heart of our operations, continuing to deliver the very best service to our clients.
We would like to thank the organisers of the awards and the judges who had the hard task of deliberating and debating the merits of each entry and also everyone involved at eTech and our clients, supporting every step of the journey from project initiation through to implementation.”
The impact of our technology within the mortgage industry has been considerable. We believe we have fundamentally changed the way our clients think and operate, bringing much needed operational efficiencies to an industry historically underserved by technology.
eTech look forward to continuing the hard work and investment in new technology. Our commitment and drive combined with ongoing partner engagement means that we strive to be one step ahead, anticipating the needs of the market and investing in our clients’ future technology requirements.
