IT services provider Niu Solutions has partnered with Virgin Money to further enhance the lender’s intermediary mortgage portal.
Virgin Money selected Niu Solutions to support its plans for digital transformation in response to the changing needs of its intermediary clients.
The project saw Virgin Money develop its mortgage lab, which aims to innovate and make the mortgage application process more efficient.
Niu Solutions virtualised the current Virgin Money Online (VMO) mortgage application and created the Virgin Money Intermediary Portal (VMIP).
This allows Virgin Money’s intermediary clients to quickly and easily access the portal via any web browser, on any device.
The optimised portal also enables clients to make decisions on borrowing more quickly and efficiently than before.
Peter Gee, managing director at Niu Solutions (pictured above), said: “Virgin Money’s aim of delivering a competitive proposition for intermediaries and improving the quality of its service to its customers, is underpinned by its adoption of innovative technology.
“Virgin’s collaborative approach has allowed us to offer our expertise and support its digitalisation plans from start to finish.
“We are extremely pleased to have helped Virgin Money harness the power of technology, and to have launched its portal as fast as possible, with no interruption to the day-to-day work of mortgage intermediaries.”
Peter Rogerson, director of mortgages at Virgin Money (pictured above), added: “Promoting the importance of advisers, championing the cause of intermediaries and building strong relationships with partners are all key components of Virgin Money’s mortgage proposition.
“Niu was able to create a place where intermediaries can carry out their core work simply and easily, on the go, and with the support and functionality they needed.”
