The last time I applied for a mortgage, I had forgotten how many different pieces of paper and documents I needed to find and hand over to the bank. At the time, I couldn't help but think how irritating this was, and how that surely they had all this data to hand already – especially as I was an existing customer with the bank. What I hadn't really thought about was the process and technology behind the application and reams of paper I was relinquishing. Not until I recently met a company based in the Moorgate WeWork, London. Having written a few of these blogs already I realise that I use terms like "the company" or "that company" a lot, so from now on I will simplify this by using "TechCo" (short hand for "Tech Company").
