London 16 March 2017 EDM Group, a leading provider of information and business process management technology and services, has announced that it has been shortlisted in the Innovation of the Year category of the National Technology Awards 2017.
EDM Group is nominated for the development of its Portal for Risk Information Sharing in Mortgages (PRISM) platform, which simplifies and accelerates a mortgage lenders’ decision making process at the point of application.
PRISM acts as a single point of integration with all data providers, including automated valuation models (AVMs) and enables lenders to digitally complete an initial property risk assessment within 15 seconds instead of several weeks. Its first deployment has been successfully completed at Nationwide Building Society and further lender implementations are scheduled for 2017.
Spencer Wyer, Group CTO, EDM Group said: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for a National Technology Award, especially in the prestigious Innovation of the Year category. We believe that PRISM genuinely has the capability to reshape the mortgage industry in the UK for the benefit of lenders, customers, brokers and conveyancers.”
The National Technology Awards, hosted by FStech Magazine, are the showcase for the leaders of technology. The National Technology Awards were created to allow the technology sector to shine, celebrating the pioneers of new technology and to help drive standards and encourage excellence.
The winners will be determined by an independent judging panel and announced at the National Technology Awards Gala and Dinner on 17 May 2017 at the Millennium Hotel London Mayfair.
About the Awards:
