I shopped for better value (price and feature) systems, and didn't find any.

Pros: Point has been a mainstay of Loan Origination Systems for years. I've used several of the biggest name products (Encompass, Genesis, LendingQB) and Point offers some of the best feature/price balance available.

It does NOT try to be all things - it's an LOS. Other sytems attempt to include CRM, and advanced marketing, and rules and engines, but for a small mortgage brokerage, there are better 3rd party tools to do all of that, and Point does a good job at playing well with others. Combined with a hosted server, it's very secure, easy to navigate, and integrates with all the major players in the space.

It does have all of the necessary loan origination tools, it updated regularly to keep pace with changes in the industry, and it FEELS like you're entering data directly onto a paper loan application, so there is very little learning curve.

Cons: The interface hasn't been updated since 2004 - maybe longer, so it looks like software from the Windows XP era. It also doesn't know how to handle custom forms other than Word, or custom views or custom much of anything else. It's an installed application, with a lot of function, but if you're looking for something cloud-based, or infinitely flexible, this isn't it.

WARNING: Potential for expensive software failure ... unresolved.

Pros: Old, ancient, familiar software. Interfaces well with Fannie Mae DO ... and credit reporting vendors. INKit e-signing is convenient yet potentially dangerous to Mortgage Broker's income.

Cons: Unstable ... data entered correctly does not always flow through to the critically important Loan Estimate (LE) ... yet their INKit system will then send out an incorrect Loan Estimate (LE) that could cost the Mortgage Broker $1,000's of dollars ... and worst of all ... they take zero responsibility for the accuracy of their software ... and choose to define the problem as "unkown" ... before telling the Mortgage Broker "too bad you lost money" using our product ... their corporate culture is as old & ancient as their software ... search for an alternative.

Overall: I use it in my daily business as a Mortgage Broker.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Tech support used to be great. I've waited two-weeks to get a reply from tech support. When they do respond, it is often nonsensical , or they outright lie about the issue at hand.

The program itself is full pf problems: printing issues, mis-calculations, data that should transfer to other forms does not. Support and management do not listen to user suggestions. They only seem to be interested in serving larger companies.

Overall: I've been using this software in my mortgage company for over 10-years. We used to be satisfied with it, but not any longer.

Recommendations to other buyers: Avoid.

My experience with calyx point is very good. Im using it almost everyday at work.

Pros: what I like the most with this software is that it keeps records from my clients and help me organize my files. it is awesome that i can separate their profile to different folders i wish to have as long as it is connected with my computer's jungle disc.

Cons: what I like the least with this software is that it cannot filter if the clients name is already there by just saving it. i have to go to advance search tab and type the client's name in order to know if they are already there.

Overall: some of the benefits I get from this software are having my file organized and being able to have one file organizer and share it with the team.

I still have to learn much about navigating to this program though it is helpful in keeping info.

Pros: Since we are in a real estate business, getting the ratio of a client based on their income which are automatically computed in this program makes it easier for us to know how much will their closing cost be and so help the client prepare ahead of time.

Cons: It is a bit difficult to navigate on this software if you are not very much familiar. It took me weeks to familiarize myself.

Overall: The best thing that we get here is the ratio of the client whether they are qualified for a mortgage loan and how much they can be qualified for. It is automatic once you enter all the details given by the buyer.

Pros: I like the ease of use and the ability to customize fields to customize the loan origination system to your business.

Cons: I do not like the non-cloud based system. The system also does not have a good indexing system for file names.

It got the job done.

Pros: I found it very easy to navigate and to know exactly where to input your information. I do like the ability to separate borrower profiles in different folders.

Cons: This software has been a staple in the mortgage industry throughout the years. I'm disappointed that the interface ability is still very poor in my opinion.

Overall a good system

Pros: There is always something to learn with this system. I haven't even scratched the surface of what this system can do.

Cons: Learning the system was a little difficult because there are a few quirks, but once you learn them the system it isn't a problem.

Overall: This system generates clean documents. This can't be said for other LOS.

Pros: Very clear on setup and where to information is explained in detai. The software is easy to use and very professionally detailed.

Overall: I ask my client about detail information the entry was right where I could put the information in use. No guessing where the information has to be retrieve. I am used to this software only.

my experience was hard the first time working on it.
