As Mortgage Choice nears its 19th birthday, the national mortgage broking franchisor is celebrating its first foray into the iPhone application space.
A simple but effective consumer-focused app was officially launched at the 2011 Mortgage Choice National Conference, which attracted 500+ attendees and wound up yesterday.
It provides consumers with free access to the company’s three most popular home loan calculators:
- How much can I borrow?
- What will my home loan repayments be?
- What will my stamp duty be?
- Allowing users to email and save the calculator results as “favourites”, the app also lets them find their local Mortgage Choice broker by entering a postcode and suburb or postcode only.
This development is another example of the company’s embrace of new technologies. It follows the installation of high-tech video conferencing facilities in Mortgage Choice head office and state offices and the introduction of CloudLock Vault, a cloud-based document repository that helps brokers manage their NCCP compliance needs.
Built in conjunction with developer Fronde, the app is in its first release phase. Greater functionality will be incorporated in stages as the mortgage broker delves further into iPhone possibilities.
