United Trust Bank and Aprao have collaborated to promote the benefits of digital solutions in the Development Finance sector | Read Press Release

Aprao’s relationship with UTB started with an article written by Aprao CEO Daniel Norman. Daniel’s article examined why so many property developers and house builders were still using Excel to present their appraisals, despite its many drawbacks. Our collaboration means that Developers, House builders and Intermediaries can share their schemes on the Aprao Appraisal & Feasability software with any one of our 24 regional BDM’s.
