IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO, December 20, 2016 — To better meet its growing consumer lending needs, Warren, Penn.-based Northwest Bank recently selected Docutech, a leading provider of compliance and documentation technology, to provide their robust loan document and electronic signature capabilities. Docutech’s flagship solution, ConformX™, will help streamline Northwest Bank’s consumer loan processes and improve efficiency.
Northwest Bank executives highlighted Docutech’s industry leading service and expertise as key factors in their decision to work with the technology provider. However, the major selling point for Northwest Bank was Docutech’s dynamic process for assembling and delivering documents to borrowers quickly and easily. With the help of ConformX, Northwest Bank gains the ability to generate, distribute and track closing documents for consumers with just a few clicks.
“Having been familiar with Docutech’s position in the industry for several years now, we were extremely pleased to see the addition of consumer loan documents to the company’s current offerings and knew we wanted to work with them as soon as possible,” said Chip Pfohl, consumer loan manager for Northwest Bank, “As a result of our relationship with Docutech, we have already gained greater flexibility within our individual document sets and are now having to maintain a much smaller inventory of documents overall.”
ConformX, which is integrated into Northwest Bank’s existing LOS, enables the lender to generate documents with no additional data entry, since the loan data is pulled directly from the database. The software is designed to automatically create mortgage docs and offers eDelivery or paper-based fulfillment options, reducing operational costs and improving productivity.
