BEP Systems, the mortgage origination software house, has added Gatehouse Bank to its roster of financiers using their customisable Apprivo2 system.

Gatehouse Bank, as a specialist finance provider, will use the new system to help make their business more efficient at a time of growth and handle the needs of customers not always served by mainstream lenders.

For Gatehouse Bank, BEP have re-configured their systems to comply with Shariah requirements when dealing with home purchase plans to help customers purchase homes and for landlords to acquire buy-to-let property.

Charles Haresnape, Chief Executive Officer of Gatehouse Bank, commented: ‘It was vital that any finance origination software house we used fully understood our Shariah requirements and BEP Systems delivered excellent solutions across home purchase plans and buy-to-let financing. This will allow us to build the business and have streamlined processes to provide financing to our customers efficiently.’

Chris Little, managing director of BEP Systems, said: ‘I’m delighted to be working with the new specialist clients who will be using Apprivo2 to give them a competitive edge in the dynamic market they operate in. Gatehouse Bank have seen the advantages of using Apprivo2 and strategic advantages will be delivered to fit their business model.

‘The Apprivo2 system also provides them with the ability to configure certain parts of the process themselves, for example when new application forms are needed and to handle new product launches which require a different set of data to be captured.

‘It’s a very exciting time in financial software and we believe Apprivo2 is the fastest growing system in the UK serving specialist finance providers.’
