Mortgage Brain Enlists Navisite to Leverage the Cloud for Home Buying
Navisite’s flexible, secure NaviCloud® platform is being used to allow Mortgage Brain to design and deploy innovative scalable cloud solutions for the mortgage industry
20 July, 2016 LONDON: Navisite Europe Limited today announces that multi-award winning technology solutions provider Mortgage Brain has selected Navisite as its cloud services partner. Mortgage Brain is migrating its services from traditional co-location management to Navisite’s resilient, secure NaviCloud IaaS platform to host and develop Mortgage Brain’s client product suite, as well as supporting the company’s own services.
The ability to quickly create and manage new environments in the NaviCloud Platform is enabling Mortgage Brain to simultaneously transition its own services to the cloud and implement their largest client project to date.
Mortgage Brain is the most widely used and preferred provider of point-of-sale, compliance, mortgage sourcing and electronic trading products and services for mortgage intermediaries. In an industry which has traditionally been very conventional, Mortgage Brain seeks to improve the experience of brokers when sourcing the most suitable mortgage for their clients, using technology to make the process simpler. Its product offerings include a cloud hosted mortgage point-of-sale solution and a consumer mortgage calculator app which enables consumers to easily find the best mortgage deals and locate the nearest broker to help with the application.
An important factor in Mortgage Brain’s decision to partner with Navisite was the ability to host data in one of two UK based data centres. The highly secure, Tier III facilities allow Mortgage Brain to back-up and replicate data in compliance with strict financial industry regulations.
Iain MacKenzie, Technical Services Director, Mortgage Brain said: “As an innovator in the Financial Services sector we continue to build services for mortgage brokers, IFAs and the next generation of house buyer. To enable us to do this we need a provider that can deliver a cloud solution which encompassed flexibility, resilience and security. Navisite has exceeded all of our expectations. Our engineers love the intuitive nature of the NaviCloud platform as well as the rolled-up-sleeves approach that the Navisite team takes in creating the best solutions alongside our technical team.”
Sean McAvan, Managing Director, Navisite said: “Increasingly, financial services companies like Mortgage Brain are looking to the cloud to help them innovate in their industry. Our strong portfolio of products and highly experienced teams means that we have the solutions in place that enable Mortgage Brain to deliver a 24/7 flexible, secure service that complies with the strict regulations of its industry.”
