Overview

The situation

Oppono is a 100% broker-focused company that takes a common sense approach to lending, providing brokers with the tools and backing to fund more mortgage deals. Oppono has spent the last decade growing its following without a single dollar spent on advertising.

The Latin term for “Mortgage,” Oppono’s business is mortgage lending, but the company is about much more than that. They asked us to help them provide even faster service, and communicate their values by designing, building, and deploying a web application that stays ahead, scales, and shifts with the industry’s ever-growing appetite for speed and convenience.

The Challenge

Quick(ish)?

Let’s face it, things move pretty slowly in the lending industry. With waiting times of up to 48 hours for mortgage approval approvals, Oppono is committed to providing approvals within 12 hours.

The problem? Oppono’s process for underwriting was falling short of their commitment, and was lacking the technology necessary to collect information from its brokers for fast pre-approval.

The Solution

A clear and concise application submission journey.

The majority of brokers working with Oppono want to skip the jargon and get right to the necessary forms they’re looking for.

Working with Oppono’s in-house team, we crafted a navigation architecture that focused on the broker’s needs first, allowing them to find and submit applications for mortgages, secured lines of credit, and business equity loans with just a few clicks or taps.

Technology

The fastest pre-approvals possible.

Oppono had a clear goal; provide brokers with the fastest pre-approvals in the industry.

The web-app’s interface was built to take brokers and borrowers through a seamless journey from form submission to pre approval, providing multi step forms that are easy to comprehend.

Built to scale, shift, and change.

How quickly could we optimize performance? How seamlessly could we deploy new iterations of the product? These were the two most important questions we asked ourselves when planning the infrastructure for this Oppono’s web app.

Our team built Oppono’s web app using a modern and sophisticated tech stack that enables our teams to publish new content, add new features, and deploy new versions of the web app in great synergy.
