There's so much to learn from each other.  Whether you're active on LinkedIn or other social media platforms, or you belong to applicable user groups and forums, there are opportunities to grow professionally and personally.


At Nortridge, we're excited to introduce our own online community. Read on to learn more about it in Mark Gleason's article below.  We invite all Nortridge clients to sign up and become active participants.


We've also just launched Webinar Wednesdays.  Every other Wednesday, NLS users are invited to tune in at 1 p.m. (Pacific Time) for sessions that cover either "Tips & Tricks" or "New Features." Both types of Webinars aim to help you use NLS more effectively.


As always, I'd love to hear from you.  Please feel free to connect with me any time.

Thank you,

Introducing the Nortridge Online Community - Participate! 
By Mark Gleason

Get the information you need at the Nortridge Online Community. This new community provides a forum where your Nortridge Loan System questions are answered by the Nortridge team as well as your peers in similar industries. We'll also post documentation, system updates, and Webinar Wednesday recordings.  And we invite all participants to share with us the features you'd like added to NLS.


We encourage every NLS user to join and participate. Create a discussion to get answers from the NLS team and the rest of the online community. Share your expertise by answering current threads.


The community is open to current NLS users and can be accessed here.  With almost 400 customers and thousands of daily users of NLS in every type of lending business, the NLS knowledge base is broad and deep. Nortridge staff members are also active participants, so this is a place to ask questions and get answers.

Nortridge Loan System allows users to specify same-as-cash on all types of loans including fixed amortized, beginning period amortized, simple interest, and Rule 78 loans.


Same-as-cash loans typically feature a set, introductory period at the start of the loan where the loan is interest free.  If the loan is paid in full during the designated time period, then there's no interest charged.   Click here to watch a brief webinar that shows how to use the same-as-cash function on NLS as well as how the accounting is recorded.
