Aldermore has launched Asset Backer, a new online broker portal.
The platform — which aims to simplify and improve the efficiency of transactions between SMEs and brokers — will allow intermediaries to:
- easily manage their portfolio in one place
- calculate and deliver quotes
- submit new business proposals
- generate documentation
- electronically sign agreement documents
New proposals will be sent direct to Aldermore’s credit underwriters for review to streamline the overall process.
Brokers can also track the status of their proposals in real time and on the go by using a smartphone, tablet or desktop device.
Patrick Jelly, commercial director for asset finance at Aldermore, said: “Asset Backer is a fantastic new tool which will further enhance our customer experience offering.
“Brokers will now find the process of managing their portfolio much quicker and more efficient.”
Patrick highlighted the development of the bank’s “digital offering” as a key factor moving forward.
“Offering an end to end fully paperless platform is part of this development and will help fulfil the online needs of brokers,” he added.
