Boost Capital has launched an online portal aimed at commercial finance brokers.

The Chelmsford-based business lender stated that it aimed to simplify the application process, using a personalised dashboard which it claims will allow applications to be sent in minutes.

Boost Capital said that the platform would then fast-track applications through underwriting, and provide real-time deal status updates, reports, and statistics.

The portal provides email alerts to brokers, allows supporting documents to be uploaded, and is managed completely online.

In addition, Boost said the portal will provide support materials that may be of use to introducers, such as marketing toolkits and information on Boost’s approach and lending criteria.

Alex Littner, managing director at Boost Capital, said: “Our aim is to go that extra mile for our introducers, we work in close partnership with them to ensure we are operating to aligned goals to enable us to both achieve significant growth, and ultimately support UK SMEs achieve their growth ambitions.

“The launch of our new broker portal marks the launch of a new era. This is just the first of a number of introducer-focused initiatives we’re planning this year.”
