Principality selects Iress to streamline mortgage service for brokers

Principality Building Society has partnered with Iress to streamline the mortgage journey for the Society’s brokers, colleagues and customers. Iress’ MSO (Mortgage Sales and Origination) software enables brokers to complete Decision in Principles, allows for faster offer times by alerting brokers to case progress, provides simpler document sharing (with the ability for multiple user accounts to share) and removes the need for wet signatures.

Currently in pilot, MSO will be released in phases to the Society’s brokers throughout 2020, prior to its full launch to market.

The launch of MSO comes as the Society looks to transform its digital products and services, adapting to customer and broker needs in an ever-evolving market. This new technology will also enable the Society to bring new mortgage products to market quicker.

As one of the leading suppliers to technology in the financial services, Iress’ MSO software is currently used by lenders of all sizes within the mortgage industry. 

Julie-Ann Haines, Chief Customer Officer for Principality Building Society said:

“We are delighted to be launching the MSO service for brokers. This latest technology will allow us to enhance our award winning service by offering a seamless user experience for brokers, including allowing easy access to cases, a simpler registration process and document sharing. 

We chose Iress as they are the leading supplier of innovative technology in the mortgage market and we look forward to sharing the full implementation of the MSO platform with all brokers.’’

Andrew Simon, Executive General Manager for Lending at Iress said: “As one of the largest building societies in the UK, and the largest in Wales, we’re thrilled to be helping Principality streamline their processes. In this new world, it’s essential that the mortgage journey is as simple as possible and we’re looking forward to helping Principality turn that into a reality.
