ICBA and Wolters Kluwer Financial Services Partner to Offer Community Banks ‘One’

Honolulu (March 5, 2007)—The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) announced an expanded Preferred Service Provider relationship with Wolters Kluwer Financial Services which will offer ICBA member community banks the comprehensive ComplianceOne™ solution. ICBA made the announcement at the 2007 ICBA National Convention and Techworld in Honolulu.

A comprehensive solution that is capable of pulling together all aspects of a financial organization's major business lines, ComplianceOne gives community banks the tools they need to create complete loan, mortgage, deposit or IRA packages. ComplianceOne's enterprise-wide access to customer information allows community banks to open new accounts and complete transactions more quickly through a common database structure.

"One of the biggest challenges facing community bankers today is how to address all of their key business initiatives with disparate processes and systems within their organizations," said Dan Clancy, ICBA senior vice president of services. "By offering ComplianceOne, ICBA is helping our community bank members address that problem by changing the way they integrate compliance, documentation and data across their business."

"ComplianceOne gives community banks the best of both worlds by automating their compliance and operational risk management processes through a single solution," said Brian Longe, president and chief executive officer for Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. "By joining an extremely easy-to-learn and use front-end interface with the most comprehensive compliance capabilities available in the industry, we're offering community banks a best-of-class solution that supports all their major business lines."

ComplianceOne is a highly configurable solution that gives a financial organization access to a wide range of functions, letting them choose and activate which ones they need when they need them. Among the in-demand functions are: dynamic documents, imaging, e-signatures, bar-coding and credit bureau access. In addition, ComplianceOne helps ensure a loan or deposit transaction meets all regulatory obligations.

By leveraging Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' PCi Wiz family of products, ComplianceOne helps ensure a loan or deposit transaction meets all regulatory obligations associated with the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), fair and predatory lending requirements and Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and anti-money laundering requirements, including USA PATRIOT Act and Customer Identification Program requirements.
