Westpac’s Mortgage Broker Distribution division, together with RP Data, have announced the launch of their free broker series road shows, commencing in September – the busiest season in home purchasing.
The group says the tour will be ‘dedicated to technology and market insights to help professional mortgage brokers win with their customers’ and that the road shows will be held in all five major capital cities, starting in Sydney.
Each event will showcase the newly-released Westpac Broker Hub Toolkit, accessible via the iPad app, which organisers say will equip brokers with new tools to acquire more leads, close loans faster, retain their clients and reach more prospects from the convenience of their mobile devices while ‘on the go’.
The app also allows accredited brokers to evaluate a customers’ eligibility for loans and to calculate repayments for clients looking for Westpac home loan product solutions.
“Our approach to the Toolkit has been simple and is aligned to Westpac’s strategy of creating mobile solutions designed to focus on meeting the individual needs of key customer segment groups such as mortgage brokers,” says Tony MacRae, general manager, Westpac Mortgage Broker Distribution.
“The Toolkit’s specifically designed features are perfect for mortgage brokers to take their clients through the home loan journey and help them get ahead in making one of the important decisions in their lives, which is to buy a home and achieve their dreams of home ownership with the help of their mortgage broker.”
MacRae says Westpac has been working closely with industry partners like RP Data and that it’s clear brokers want to be able to interact naturally with new innovation.
“We need solutions to help them be more productive in their daily business activities.”
