eKeeper is set to the launch of the latest version of its mortgage CRM software Mortgage Keeper following its acquisition by Norland Capital .
Last month Norland Capital, a technology focused private equity investment firm, acquired eKeeper and banking software provider DPR.
Rick Watkin (pictured), chief executive, eKeeper – who will continue in his role, said: “At present, while technology is playing a bigger and bigger part in brokers working lives there is still much more that can be done to help brokers. We are launching our latest version of Mortgage Keeper in September which I’m confident is one of, if not the, best in the market.
“Brokers are finding themselves logging into multiple systems to complete a case – from sourcing systems, lenders’ own technology platforms and also our CRM system. Norland Capital share our vision to rethink the way brokers do business by creating one end-to-end system which will significantly reduce the time taken for each client case, provide a joined up approach across all levels of the industry and essentially making the mortgage chain run more smoothly.
“It’s an ambitious project and over time I am confident we can achieve this now that we are part of DRP who provide the technology to over 40 banks and building societies in the UK”.
Paraag Davé, of Norland Capital added: “The mortgage industry, like many others, is going through huge change as consumers, lenders and brokers want want access to smarter technology to reduce friction and speed up the mortgage application process. We believe that the combination of DPR and eKeeper can provide a solution that meets the needs of brokers and lenders and allows the industry to take the next step in technological advancement.”
