Nationwide launches apps for intermediaries

Nationwide has created two new mobile apps to enable quick and easy access to products and information for intermediaries.

The new apps are free from app stores and are available for iPad, iPhone and AndroidTM mobile phones and tablets.

One new app has been created for Nationwide for Intermediaries (NFI), concentrating on the residential market, while the other app is for The Mortgage Works (TMW), which covers specialist lending including buy-to-let and let to buy.

The NFI app features a product finder, which will search for and identify suitable Nationwide residential mortgage products whether the intermediary is with a client, at home or on the move.

It has a criteria search function, affordability calculator, house price calculator, comparison calculator for different rates and products and iinformation such as service performance and key features.

The TMW app allows advisers to research TMW specialist lending products, including buy-to-let, let to buy, guarantor and further advance.

It includes an affordability calculator, buy-to-let rental income calculator and a mortgage payment comparison calculator.

On both apps, pages are cached for 24 hours so that brokers can access them via the app while offline.

Brokers with the existing TMW affordability calculator app will be automatically prompted to update it when they go in to the app if using an iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet.

Ian Andrew, managing director of Nationwide Group Intermediary Sales, said: “These apps have been developed with intermediaries in mind, so that they can find NFI and TMW products and information more quickly and easily.

“Whether their client is a new residential borrower or a landlord, these apps will help the intermediary find the most appropriate product in a fast and easy way.

“Most of the features that are currently accessible on the Nationwide and TMW websites are now available to intermediaries via the mobile apps, wherever they are and whether or not they have immediate access to the internet.”
