Mortgage 2000 hosts training on sourcing system MTE

Encore the new mortgage sourcing system from Mortgage 2000 now incorporates the MTE and this is an opportunity for intermediaries to see for themselves the benefits of e-trading. Mortgage 2000 already provides electronic access to 38 lenders, and with more to launch shortly through the MTE, intermediaries will be able to get a real hands on feel of the electronic trading platform.

The workshops will run weekly across the country and are open to any intermediaries irrespective of which sourcing system they may be using. There will be two workshops per day, 10am and 2pm starts respectively, with each catering for a maximum of twenty delegates to ensure a focused and intimate approach to the training.

The venues have been provided by Standard Life Bank and include major cities such as London, Birmingham, Cardiff and Glasgow. The training workshops are planned to continue throughout 2003 and 2004 giving access to as many people and in as many different locations as possible.

The workshops are free and delegates will be awarded CPD certificates for attending.

The topics covered in the training sessions include:

an overview of the new "Encore" system

a short "building your business" presentation by a guest lender

an overview of The Source insurance system (now integrated within Encore)

an overview of the MTE and how it works.

plus, an optional hands-on workshop to enable delegates to put into practice what they have learnt during the sessions.

Encore, launched in May 2003, is one of the most comprehensive mortgage sourcing systems ever produced, providing intermediaries access to every UK lender and over 4,000 products.

Sean Hornsby, Sales and Marketing Director, at Mortgage 2000 commented: "The launch of the MTE is a significant development in our industry, and coupled with "Encore" the new sourcing system now available, we believe the best way to introduce the benefits to intermediaries, is to get out and see them. Feedback from our existing subscribers suggested that an intimate hands-on workshop would be more beneficial than just grand presentations. Our approach therefore is to have small groups where delegates have the ability to learn about the new system in a training environment."
