The industry’s leading end-to-end mortgage provider, Smartr365, has expanded its offering into home insurance through a partnership with Uinsure, it was announced today. The integration seeks to further streamline the home ownership journey through the addition of home insurance to the integrated services already offered via Smartr365 platform.
Clients will now be able to access quotes for home insurance within the platform in seconds, eliminating the need to consult external brokers. Instead, advisors utilising the Smartr365 platform can provide customers with a total-solution package across borrowing and insurance, with the aim of reducing paperwork and allowing more time for client engagement, in turn, helping to boost client retention.
Thanks to auto-fill technology, brokers that have initially keyed in client data through Smartr365 will be able to create, tailor and compare quotes in seconds without needing to re-type personal details entered elsewhere on the platform. Other benefits include coordination between both Smartr365 and Uinsure platforms to ensure updates made through Uinsure are automatically reflected on Smartr365, streamlining the process to save advisors up to one hour per application.
The integration forms part of Smartr365’s quest to digitalise the mortgage journey, enhancing the borrowing experience from broker to buyer.
Conor Murphy, CEO and Founder, Smartr365 said:
“There has been real appetite amongst mortgage advisors to expand their services and we have listened, bringing borrowing and insurance together to allow brokers to offer clients a one-stop shop to home ownership and a truly end-to-end mortgage experience. This partnership means that brokers can offer a more comprehensive service to their clients, without the need for time consuming training and accreditation, available via the Smartr365 platform.
“Smartr365 is committed to saving brokers time and preventing paperwork in a bid to simplify the mortgage journey, and this partnership with Uinsure is no exception. Our innovative digital technologies and auto-population features will allow brokers to concentrate their efforts on providing ever-crucial advice to clients amidst such challenging economic circumstances.”
Martin Schultheiss, Uinsure CCO, said: “As a result of our integration, advisers will benefit from industry-leading insurance technology that automatically extracts client data to build the relevant insurance policy, massively simplifying and streamlining the application process, all from within their existing client management platform – Smartr365.
“This technology was developed to help us achieve our mission of seeing GI offered alongside every mortgage application and as this can now be done in seconds from within adviser’s existing workspace, this will prove to be a significant hurdle in helping us achieve our goal.
“Both ourselves at Uinsure and the team at Smartr365 have delivered tech solutions that are built solely with the end customer in mind and given how we’re closely aligned in our drive to continually progress, we’re very much looking forward to how our partnership will evolve.”
