The idea sparked off by the utilization of chatbot technology in order to make mortgage advisers virtual for the initial screening process, giving information to applications without having to go for a face-to-face meeting at a bank (for example, when considering multiple properties). Once a quote is agreed upon, a single-click button will allow the customers to reach customer service, along with a quote being logged to Barclay’s servers, streamlining the application process.

Additionally, the user’s selections and profiles could be saved and utilized to display a range of useful nearby services such as relocation companies and interior designers, who are again, at a one-button click away from scheduling appointments. If desired, companies could promote themselves via subscriptions to appear higher on this list

What it does

Delivers a quote on mortgage interest based on algorithms involving the loan amount, payback time, deposit, job stability and income of the client. Allows for one-click appointment schedules with Barclays customer service and shows a list of nearby services to the supplied post code.
