Compliance Systems Exists as a Part of Great Lakes Business Forms

Compliance Systems first began as part of Great Lakes Business Forms.



Compliance Systems Founded

Compliance Systems (formerly called CSi) was officially founded as a separate business entity.



Document Selection and Compliance Logic Systems (CLS)

Designed as an intelligent data collection that provided compliance validation every step of the way, CLS allowed financial institutions to create and maintain their own product and policy disclosures, like Truth in Savings and Home Equity Early disclosures. Institutions could now take complete control over new products and eliminate timing issues that so often presented hurdles to last-minute changes in product definitions or institution policy.

Selection Logic (DSL) was introduced In parallel with the development and launch of CLS. DSL uses data to determine the documents required to perfect financial transactions and relates entities and collateral with the relevant documents, helping institutions mitigate risk at the root level of the transaction. Previously, lenders had to manually maintain document package lists by investors and products.



Dynamic Documents

We pushed the development of the first truly dynamic documents long before other providers saw a problem that required solving.

In 2002, documents were static images that typically required solution providers to place data on them using a rectangular coordinate system—better known as x,y coordinates. CSi was the first to provide a merge technology, eliminating the need for the partner to maintain the x,y mapping.



IntelleDoc Solutions Compliance Engine

The Compliance Engine is part of our core technology, and it’s at the heart of everything we do. It parses and analyzes data based on business rules and the output option requested by the partner system.



Configurable Document Systems

We piloted the development of Configurability.

Documents created with our technology are, by definition, dynamic and custom-generated for each transaction, so Configurability is a natural extension of our dynamic document technology. Configurability allows financial institutions to modify, append, or replace text provisions within documents so that they can adapt to market, business, policy, and regulatory developments while maintaining warranted compliance with Compliance Systems.



CSi Data Schema

The CSi Data Schema is another example of development specifically intended to support our partner integration efforts.

Years ago, we recognized the need to support the MISMO data schema in order to enter the mortgage market. We took that idea even further, though, by envisioning a complete data schema to support not only mortgage, but also deposit, consumer lending, and commercial lending as the best strategy to bring partner products using CSi technology to market more quickly.

The CSi Data Schema creates a single data set, based on a single standard, to define all transactions across multiple channels of customer contact. It reduces the number of data elements that require application development by partners, and it reduces the length of time required for partner development.



Transaction Risk Management

Our Transaction Risk Management Solution, powered by our Simplicity technology and a suite of powerful technology components, equips your financial institution to mitigate the inherent business threats to which you are exposed with each transaction you conduct and better target your resources on activities that add to your bottom line. Content configuration and powerful data analytics help you reduce compliance and operational risk so you can spend more time cultivating customer relationships.



CSi Simplicity

CSi Simplicity™ expanded our configurable functionality and allows financial institutions to designate custom language, default data, logos, bar codes, etc., to be applied to standard documents automatically. These were always a pain point for financial institutions in terms of both time and cost to manage such customizations.



Data Collection Logic

Data Collection Logic leverages the compliance rules and business intelligence built into our dynamic documents to help build data collection screens for user interfaces. Data Collection Logic not only ensures a premium user experience for the collection of regulatory information, it streamlines the development process for faster time to market with application changes.



Simplicity Runtime

Simplicity Runtime is one of our latest technology components. It’s a data management and compliance software that runs with our partner’s banking platforms. That data collection is based on existing business and regulatory rules already integrated into Compliance Systems technology.

Our partners have traditionally struggled with the problem of data analysis in the development of their own systems, as their own data collection and application user interfaces also depend on an ongoing knowledge and analysis of regulatory compliance and business rules. Simplicity Runtime allows Compliance Systems and an integrating partner to unite each organization’s areas of expertise and devote its resources to its own respective strengths.

Simplicity Runtime can decrease the time and costs required for a business partner to get a quality platform solution on the market and to maintain that solution in the face of ongoing regulatory changes.
