"Calyx Point is very crucial to the success of our company, VAMortgageCenter.com. It offers the tools to track and organize our client's data between our loan officers, processors, and underwriters, saving us hours of time, but more importantly, headaches. Combining this with the ability to interface with third party applications seamlessly, Calyx Point is our Loan Origination Software of choice."
"I've been in the mortgage industry for 30 years and Point is the easiest software that I've used"
The National Bank of Georgia
"Our mortgage Lenders love Point and can't live without it!"
Vantage Point Bank
"I've been using Point for about 8 years and it's still user friendly. I really like the upgrades in the current version with the new right side bar and layout of the Good Faith Estimate."
Mutual Savings Credit Union
"We've used Point for about 7 years, and find it very cost effective for us to use. The disclosures in Point have always kept us in compliance, and it directly interfaces to the secondary market systems and the credit agencies we work with."
TwinStar Credit Union
"We switched from Encompass because of the tremendous cost savings and we were impressed with the flexibility of PointCentral."
The Lending Company
"Calyx always works; it's just so stable. Employees that have used other systems are excited to learn that we can modify any of the fields that appear on multiple pages and they will automatically update throughout the file. And with PointCentral's server platform, anybody with authority can access files 24/7 and we never have to worry about the security and integrity of our loan documents--and that's huge."
Residential Capital Mortgage
"Calyx works well for us in terms of web applications, origination and reporting. As a hard money lender, we wanted to customize a lot of things — make our own forms without RESPA language, closing docs, etc... and Calyx is very well–equipped for all of that. So, all–in–all, we are pleased. Calyx has definitely been an upgrade to our business."
Principal, Investor Relations
Hard Money Bankers, LLC
"We have always used Calyx Software but we also used to have a second back-end system. Now we only use PointCentral as our system of record. We have saved a ton of money on third party hosting and secondary systems since we implemented PointCentral with WebCaster. It's also been a tremendous time saver now that we can manage our own updates so easily through the admin sites and push software updates through MyCalyx. Calyx has definitely gone the extra mile to help us determine the most efficient and cost-effective system for us."
Residential Mortgage of Colorado
"I've used Encompass and it's complicated because you need to know the fields to understand where to show information. PointCentral on the other hand, is user friendly and that is huge for processors. Our organization values how easy it is to track the status of our loans for HMDA reporting. PointCentral makes everything simple. These days, that's not easy to do."
Golden Equity Mortgage
"PointCentral is so easy to use. The whole system flows very smoothly from start to finish and it's very easy to train new employees even if they've never worked in the software before. The flexibility we get with the pre-built rules and those we've created ourselves ensure our workflow is seamless and accurate."
Brian Cormier, LO & Sales Manager
IC Credit Union
"PointCentral enables us to easily share files and as a manager, I love that I have all the reports I need for management and oversight. We can keep up with document changes and I know that whatever documents I send out are legal, which is really significant for us. My processors and originators have been using Point for years and even though Calyx keeps us updated with compliance and software upgrades, we still have the easy-to-use screens we've always known."
"We use PointCentral as our system of record. We like that we do not have to use a an additional secondary back-end system. The banker screens and secondary marketing screens flow with the actual process of the system. I've been using Calyx for 12 years and I love that it's had so many great updates but it's still so easy to use."
Pacific Oaks Federal Credit Union
"We've been with Calyx since 2003 and are completely sold on the benefits of PointCentral. It's pretty impressive especially if you have multiple offices. We can work from home or from anywhere in the world and have access to the same files we would from within the office. We would have never been able to do that before PointCentral. From a management standpoint, I love that I can view the entire pipeline and correct issues within any file from any location. The conditions feature of the banker screens ensures that we have checks in place to meet lender or investor guidelines. We can easily manage everything from user access to business rules through the administration website. PointCentral has drastically simplified compliance."
First choice Lending Services, LLC
"PointCentral does it all, from the start of a lead to the sale of the loan, it's the only software we need."
I recently participated in a private on-line training class with one of your Calyx consultants. The consultant's thorough knowledge of Point and her and backup of the people at MSI, along with a great teaching rhythm, kept the class interesting. She pointed out the new features in the software and the impact of the new fields. Using real life examples, she demonstrated the impact of several different scenarios and the result of each action she took. The consultant was very good at weaving questions into the discussion throughout the class as we were on the topic (instead of waiting until then end). I have a background in training and I think that was one of the best classes I have ever attended. I was impressed!"
New West Lending
"I came to Union Square Federal Credit Union on March 23, 2009 from a local bank here in Wichita Falls. The first item on my agenda was to order Calyx Point and Webcaster for our mortgage department. I have used Calyx since December 2003 and am extremely pleased. The updates Calyx provides are always timely and easy to implement. Interfaces with my closing docs provider always allows for efficiency to order our initial disclosures and subsequent closing docs. I would recommend CALYX Point to any business who engages in the mortgage loan business."
Ralph Dunkelberg, III, VP Mortgage
Union Square Federal Credit Union
"The customer service personnel in Texas did a lot of work during the GFE issues earlier in the year. I have had the pleasure of calling on them for support for that issue as well as others. They have done a superior job supporting me on various issues. They are patient and knowledgeable. And most importantly, they want to find a way for Calyx to work for the customer even if any troubleshooting issues are not directly related to Calyx. They helped me when the problem was with Fannie Mae DO after Fannie Mae had blown me off. And they helped me with a computer setup issue when my rogue mouse was causing the problems. Yet, they patiently helped me. They have been great."
"I wanted to let you know what great job your instructor did training us for 1½ days on Calyx and Point Central. She was patient, listened to our questions and guided us through many areas of Point and Point Central. Her assistance will vastly improve our efficiencies and make us much better lenders. I also wanted to mention that she has a great attitude and is definitely an asset to the Calyx team. I would highly recommend her!"
Rick Barber, Group Vice President, Mortgage Lending
Gateway Bank of Southwest Florida
"Our branches are up and running with the PointCentral solution. It is starting to pay big dividends already and we look for increased efficiencies throughout the year."
Mike Bonito, VP Consumer Lending
Evans Bank, N.A.
"At least half of my 20 years experience in the mortgage and real estate industry has been spent with Calyx Point and I refuse to even consider any other system. I've tried other systems and they don't measure up to the user friendliness and the superior level of customer support I receive from Calyx. I have successfully used the program as a Processor, Underwriter, and Loan Officer. I store my client contact information in the system to keep close tabs on my clients by the tracking system, data base, and interactive mailers that I utilize (like birthday wishes and various promotions).
Thank you Calyx for keeping a high level of integrity throughout the years!"
C2 Financial Corporation
"I've used Calyx Point for almost 10 years and it is far superior and more user friendly than any other system I have used."
Zac Polk, National Support Manager
1st Alliance Mortgage, LLC
"As the Administrator I have control over who has access to what information and I can restrict information and functionality as needed very easily over an internet connection. In the current competitive market and the current regulatory environment it would be difficult for our shop to keep up without the seamless combination of Webcaster, Point, and PointCentral."
Jerry Phillips, Vice President
"The templates are easy to use, the hands-on classes are priceless, and the staff is warm and inviting. It's not until you have your system operational that you realize how far Calyx goes in preparing and supporting its customers."
