Mortech, a Zillow Group business that offers technology solutions for mortgage bankers and secondary market teams, announced Tuesday that its product and pricing engine (PPE) and secondary marketing solutions are now integrated into Calyx’s Point and PointCentral (Point) loan origination software (LOS).
The integration allows Point users to access Mortech's mortgage product and eligibility information and compare loan pricing scenarios from more than 400 investor sheets all within the Calyx interface.
“In today’s competitive market place, closing loan transactions quickly and efficiently is critical and lenders are increasingly looking for technology solutions to help streamline the loan process,” said Doug Foral, General Manager at Mortech. “By aligning the Mortech and CalyxSoftware offerings, we are providing our customers with the mortgage automation solutions they seek to optimize their day-to-day workflow, bringing simplicity to the complex mortgage environment and ultimately, delivering a technological solution to allow our customers to close more loans more quickly.”
Mortech also noted that the integration will give consumers instant access to its pricing, including loan specific rate, profit and adjustment information, along with automating the lock request process by seamlessly transferring borrower scenario data between its Marksman PPE and Point. In addition, the integration is expected to reduce the chance of error by removing data re-entry, and improve loan-processing automation through multi-system interoperability.
“At Calyx, we’re continually enhancing our software and adding quality technology partners to our network to offer a competitive edge to our mortgage banking and broker clients,” said Dennis Boggs, executive vice president of business development at CalyxSoftware. “Integrating Mortech’s product and pricing engine into our platform will simplify the searching process for our users and provide them access to pricing from Mortech’s extensive portfolio of supported wholesale and correspondent programs.”
Editors Note: An earlier version of this article showed that Mortech and Calyx were "merging" their mortgage pricing and loan technologies. The companies are in fact "integrating" mortgage pricing and loan technologies.
