Calyx Software Introduces Point & PointCentral 8.0

New Release Prepares Users for Mobile Apps

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2012) - Calyx Software®, the preferred mortgage solution provider for banks, credit unions, mortgage bankers and brokers, announced the launch of Point® and PointCentral® 8.0. This latest release paves the way for Calyx Mobile™ to bring much needed mobility to loan originators for productivity on the run. Point and PointCentral 8.0 not only enhance the user experience for the upcoming mobile apps, but they offer additional features for even greater convenience to users of Point and WebCaster®.

With Point and PointCentral 8.0, several modifications have been made to prepare users for mobile productivity. The software, along with the account management system, MyCalyx®, has been optimized for the mobile applications functionality. Sophisticated technology securely shares data across applications for more effective workflow and streamlined processes.

Users have been enthusiastic to learn about Point's new Pipeline View screen which offers a centralized location to view and manage loans grouped by status, data folder or user. Users can choose to see automatic group settings or create manual views so they can see specific loans regardless of status. This screen can be set up as the default screen for Point for each user depending on need or preference and will be shared automatically with the Calyx Mobile Apps available in November.

This release also offers a new feature for WebCaster and Point users that enables new application notification and downloads directly from within Point. Users can customize the feature to determine the type and scheduling of notifications as well as other helpful parameters. Direct import of new applications into Point saves valuable time in getting new files set up and in process to improve service levels to borrowers.

In addition to updates to several screens and forms needed for compliance, Point and PointCentral 8.0 include 11 extra options for the "advanced search" button featured prominently on the left side navigation panel. These new options allow users to search for loans based on criteria such as investor, borrower SS#, loan amount, or type of loan.

"We are excited that this release drives our clients toward the mobile technology so many of them have been asking for. Getting our users ready for the upcoming mobile apps is paramount with 8.0," said Jody Collup, director of marketing at Calyx Software. "We're pleased that 8.0 provides such a springboard to help our clients increase their productivity and get the most out of the software that is so important to their business."
