Their story

​The applications that Together’s mortgage brokers used to provide loans were not scalable to support their plan to double revenue in five years.

Developing and modernising Together’s applications

Adopting a business focused approach to application development and modernisation helps you to build critical capabilities that support business goals.

Application leaders, architects and development specialists can use application development and modernisation to progress business priorities, build agile architectures and design strategies to resolve integration and legacy issues.

Application development and modernisation strategies have already helped our clients to:

  • Prioritise applications that contribute to critical business capabilities
  • Create a business case to forecast incremental application migration 
  • Implement continuous modernization to support evolving technology and business goals

Our client, Together decided to double their revenue in five years.  The applications that they used were not scalable to support the proposed business plans.  Their success relied on replacing and modernising their existing legacy systems to increase their business capability, efficiency and productivity.

Continuous modernisation to support evolving technology

Developing and modernising applications maximises your application development capabilities with a product-centric model and evolution to cloud.

We helped Together to leverage these benefits so that they could support their business growth plans.


The Problem

  • Support the enterprise digital strategy to increase efficiency without headcount growth 
  • Replace soon to be out of support legacy technologies with a modern architecture
  • Design and develop two websites, one for brokers and one for internal users
  • Handle complex business rules across the system with flexible design, to enable semi-automatic underwriting and loan processing

The Solution

  • Migrating from on-premise to Azure cloud
  • Pushing loan data into a data warehouse daily to generate management reports
  • Enabling seamless integration with multiple applications without making any modification to code
  • Creating a Selenium based automation framework
  • Designing an intuitive customer journey

The Outcome

  • Improved satisfaction for 95% of brokers
  • Reduced underwriting time by 30%
  • Achieved 300% loan book growth over 5 years

With Mastek as our transformation partner . . . We’ve already dramatically cut the time it takes to make underwriting decisions and to respond to regulator changes. Ultimately, these other advances have freed us to grow our business in line with expectations."
