"We will use our Apprivo2 platform as the basis of the development and customise it to suit the requirements of SBI UK."
SBI UK's buy-to-let range includes products for individuals, limited companies and portfolio landlords, as well as SPVs and expats. Property types include lending on HMOs, houses and flats throughout England and Wales.
BEP Systems will use its customisable Apprivo2 platform to deliver a fully integrated lending origination solution, covering the whole journey from initial application, packaging and underwriting through to completion.
The platform will bring about improved automation for SBI UK, including new interfaces with Quest for valuations and Experian for credit checks.
The new lending processes are due to go live in Q2 2020.
