Calyx Software, a well-known provider of loan marketing, originating and processing software, said Wednesday morning that it had rolled out a new hazard insurance category in the Calyx Network, connecting users of Calyx Point loan origination software with participating hazard insurance vendors. Details on available participating insurers were not provided. Through Calyx Point, the new hazard insurance integration allows a loan officer can generate a hazard insurance quote for the borrower, using tools embedded in the services menu; borrower data is automatically incorporated from the loan file into the insurance quote form, eliminating the need for re-keying information. Once the hazard insurance quote is generated, the borrower can purchase coverage online or over the phone at any time of day, Calyx said. "By adding a new hazard insurance category, obtaining a hazard insurance quote is now easier than pulling a credit report,” said Keith Kemph, national sales manager, interfaces, of Calyx Software. "The new category provides Calyx Point users with a user-friendly feature and function that helps improve their customer service and simplifies insurance processes." For more information, visit
