    Feature Delivery Methods This graph compares HOW each mortgage POS vendor is planning to deliver the proposed POS 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 mortgage point of sale comparison are based on responses to mortgage POS system questions only, i.e., no vendor, pricing, or support responses are utilized.

    Supportability Index A proposed POS system could look very good on paper, but once implementation begins the reality could be very different. The ease with which a mortgage point-of-sale 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 mortgage point of sale software system features only.

Easily document the severity, category, and requirements type of missing functionality using GAP analysis, and then calculates a score, for each GAP. The GAP process creates a prioritized, detailed list of mortgage POS system requirements useful in all later phases of the mortgage point of sale software evaluation/selection process, i.e., in RFP creation, Software Demonstrations, Price (BAFO) negotiation, and software system implementation. View details at Fit/GAP Analysis Details.

point-of-sale mortgage requirements questions


 

      Identify BOTH Mortgage Software Features Availability and Deliverability

Unlike other RFP templates that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex mortgage POS 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 POS RFP Master function is useful during both the mortgage point-of-sale software selection AND the system implementation phases of large projects because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable POS software functionality and vendor invoicing.

Nichification sample questions


 

      Determine the Risk & Supportability of Proposed

POS Software Solutions

Unlike other RFP templates, an mortgage point of sale software RFP Master template 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 software selection AND the implementation phases of a large POS system because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.

      Effectively Manage Implementation

Enhancement Cost Tracker

This POS RFP template provides an "Enhancement Cost" column for cross-referencing vendor invoices with the estimated cost of each custom custom script and/or source code modification proposed by the vendor. This makes the mortgage point of sale RFP an ideal tool for managing vendor invoices effectively. The uses of this are many: preventing payments to vendors from exceeding usable system progress, preventing vendor over-billing, and prevents proposed tasks from being omitted, and as an implementation audit tool.
 


 

      Workflow Topics Included.

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

      WEIGHTED GRADE POINT SCORING

      These comprehensive and CUSTOMIZABLE Weighted Grade Point Scoring functions are used to determine how well MATCHED a vendor mortgage POS proposal is to your specific prioritized mortgage POS system requirements


 

      Weighted Grade Score Graph

Compares the Weighted Grade Point Score calculated for each proposed POS system. This is calculated as follows: The mortgage point-of-sale 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 mortgage POS software 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 mortgage point of sale 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 POS software 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 mortgage POS vendor is proposing to deliver the system feature/function contained in their mortgage point of sale 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) mortgage POS feature presents far less risk than that same mortgage point-of-sale feature done as a "custom programming" task. Also, see the Supportability Index, which sums up these detail risk factors.


 

      POS Supportability Index Graph:

The Supportability Index is a forecast of how much mortgage point of sale software 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 mortgage POS 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 mortgage POS system that also has a high Weighted Score, along with the Vendor Profile. The more custom code, the higher the risk posed by that mortgage point of sale 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 POS RFP for mortgages. The mortgage POS 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.


 

      Cost Savings Analysis:

Calculates and illustrates Yearly Savings, Payback Period, Return on Investment (ROI), Internal Rate of Return (IRR), and other decision making ratios pertinent to a software/platform selection project.
