    Feature Delivery Methods This graph compares HOW each loan origination vendor is planning to deliver the proposed engineer to order LOS system. The bars show how much of each competing system is going to be delivered Fully Supported "out-of-the-box", how much will be delivered using the Report Writer, a Configuration option or 3rd Party product, and how much is dependant on Custom Programming & Scripting. The scores used in this loan origination comparison are based on responses to loan origination system questions only, i.e., no vendor, pricing, or support responses are utilized. View sample 3-D Bar Chart comparison here.

    Supportability Index A proposed engineer to order LOS could look very good on paper, but once implementation begins the reality could be very different. The ease with which a loan origination system can be implemented and maintained over it's expected life is controlled in large part by the amount of custom programming and scripting required to build & maintain the system. The Supportability Index is based on responses to loan origination Software System Features only. This graph compares the potential support effort inherent in each proposed engineer to order LOS system. View sample 3-D Bar Chart comparison here.

      Identify BOTH Software Features Availability and Deliverability

      Unlike other RFPs that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex account & loan origination system features, RFP Masters are not constrained to the use of summary-level "Yes" or "No" answers. This RFP Master uses a Feature Support Matrix (FSM) that identify BOTH feature AVAILABILITY and DELIVERY Method. This loan origination software RFP Master function is useful during both the account & loan origination software selection AND the system implementation phases of large projects because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.


      Determine the Risk & Supportability of Proposed

Software Solutions

      Unlike other RFPs, an loan origination software RFP Master can illustrate potential support problems (and risk) inherent in vendor software proposals. The Feature Support Matrix (FSM) used in each RFP Master categorizes the inherent risk posed for each criteria, and uses that information to calculate the SUPPORTABILITY INDEX for each vendor RFP response. For example, a feature delivered "out of the box" FULLY SUPPORTED is less risky than one delivered through custom programming, even if the programming is free. This RFP Master function is useful during both the loan origination software selection AND the implementation phases of a large account & loan origination system because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.


      Workflow Topics Included.

      The ability of the proposed account & loan origination software to successfully integrate with existng business process workflows, or implement new workflows, is critical to a achieving the high productivity increases and ROI expected of the new system. This RFP Master examines all pertinent Workflow features in detail.


      Vendor Response Input Validation.

      Vendors must answer each RFP question by choosing from a pre-defined list of possible responses. See below for an example of this drop-down list. This forces all vendors to respond to each account & loan origination software question in a consistent, standard manner. Eliminates the days of time typically wasted trying to compare the inconsistent or incomplete vendor responses obtained by using traditional, non-quantitative RFP questions! Ensures vendor account & loan origination software proposals are easy to compare and evaluate!


      Color-Coded, "Apples-to-Apples" Comparison of Proposed Systems

Loan Origination Software Comparison

      These comparison matrices automatically change vendor response cell background color to GREEN, YELLOW, or RED, to reflect how favorable each response is to your needs! Compared to the tedious task of reviewing hundreds of mono-color Yes/No answers, these colored responses allow problem areas to be spotted more easily, and risk assessment is made much more accurate. All required response comparison matrices are included and ready-to-use! Quickly and easily compare account & loan origination software system proposals side-by-side, feature by feature, in detailed comparisons you control! Keep your project on-schedule and under-budget.


      Evaluation Ratios

      Use an extensive set of ratio calculations to compare loan origination vendor proposals quickly and efficiently.


      Weighted Grade Score Graph

      Compares the Weighted Grade Point Score calculated for each proposed engineer to order LOS. This is calculated as follows: The loan origination vendor response to each RFP question is assigned an unweighted "raw" score. This raw score is then multiplied by the weight factor you entered previously (default = 1) for that engineer to order LOS RFP question to calculate the weighted score for each response. All of these individual scores are then totaled for use in this comparison. This score is essentially a measure of how well a loan origination software system fits your business and software needs, prioritized by the weight (importance level) you assigned to each question in the RFP. In essence, this score measures the SUITABILITY of each proposed engineer to order LOS system to your overall requirements. . NOTE this score measures just software functionality, and does not include any measure of vendor background, expertise, support, or programming ability.


      Feature Delivery Method Comparison:

      An analysis of how each loan origination vendor is proposing to deliver the system feature/function contained in their loan origination proposal. The graph below shows the percentage that is Fully Supported "out-of-the-box", the percentage to be done via Report Writer, a Configuration Parameter, or Third-Party add-in, versus the percentage to be done via Custom Coding (Scripting / Programming). This information is very useful in terms of identifying RISK, since a Fully Supported (and tested) loan origination feature presents far less risk than that same loan origination feature done as a "custom programming" task. Also, see the Supportability Index, which sums up these detail risk factors.


      Loan Origination System Supportability Index Graph:

      The Supportability Index is a forecast of how much engineer to order LOS support and maintenance may be required to keep each proposed software system running at full potential over it's lifetime. This score is determined by how much custom coding is required to implement the proposed loan origination software, and which business processes depend on the customized software.


      Overall Comparison Graph:

      This graph compares both the Weighted Grade (Suitability) Score, Supportability Index, and the Vendor Capabilities Profile side-by-side for easy reference. It is important to see how much custom coding is in a proposed engineer to order LOS system that also has a high Weighted Score, along with the Vendor Profile. The more custom code, the higher the risk posed by that loan origination system. Therefore, the more custom coding, the more expertise and capabilities a vendor should have.


      Vendor Profile Score Graph:

      The backgrounds, expertise, capabilities, and certifications of each vendor is obtained in the Vendor Global Issues section of the loan origination RFP. The engineer to order LOS vendor responses to this section are totaled separately from the software functionality topics, and this data is used to calculate the "Vendor Profile Score". The higher the score, the more CAPABILITIES a vendor is probably going to be.
