With a highly customer-focused business model built around an accelerated, 15-minute account opening process, Metro Bank required a mortgage origination solution that met its requirements for quick, efficient processing of mortgage documents. In addition, Metro Bank needed a solution provider with industry experience that could scale up to meet its projected growth (100 stores by 2020). Finally, Metro Bank sought a partner that could provide the solution as a hosted service, enabling the bank to make critical investments in other areas of its business. After an extensive evaluation process, Metro selected BancTec.
“Financial flexibility is extremely important for start up financial institutions, as is working with partners that have the industry background necessary to understand our unique operating environment, such as regulatory requirements,”
“Our proven solutions, deep industry expertise, and willingness to be a true partner were key in establishing this relationship with Metro Bank. We look forward to helping make this an extremely successful venture,” said Steve Downey, general manager, BancTec UK.
Built around its eFirst Origin mortgage origination system—a multi-channel solution that supports retail, broker and web transactions—
