Calyx Software, the mortgage industry's leading provider of loan originating and processing software, announced the latest release of WebCaster, its affordable Web site service that enables mortgage professionals to market their business online.
The enhancements include the addition of 12 new site designs, providing more than 60 different template options.
Calyx's WebCaster product offers a wide array of site designs to provide brokers with a professional Web site that complements their brand identity most effectively. With the addition of twelve new templates, mortgage professionals can now develop a unique style to reflect their specific business image.
Additionally, the latest version includes the integration of the Consumer Handbook on Adjustable Rate Mortgages (CHARM) booklet, that is a mandatory disclosure to be presented at the time of application to borrowers who apply for a mortgage loan online. Additional enhancements have also been made to the short loan application to include further background information about borrowers and the type of loan needed. The new features added to WebCaster simplify the loan process and provide more accessible prequalification applications.
WebCaster is specifically designed to work with Calyx's loan origination system (LOS) software Point, and offers WebCaster Desktop, a feature that notifies originators as soon as prospects submit loan applications on their WebCaster site. Those applications are then securely transferred directly to Point or Point Data ServerTM for subsequent processing. This feature can be downloaded from the WebCaster Administration site at no additional cost to WebCaster subscribers.
"The way that a loan originator does business can be significantly streamlined through the use of online applications because Calyx WebCaster is such an affordable solution," said Ted Hicks, Manager of Product Design and Research at Calyx Software. "By following a few simple steps, a mortgage broker can have a custom designed Web site that provides around the clock service to clients, leading to increased revenue for his or her business."
