Bankers Systems Makes Tailored Privacy Documents Faster And More Convenient With New On-line Tool

ST. CLOUD, MN, July 27, 2000—Bankers Systems, Inc. (BSI), the leader in compliance solutions for the financial services industry, announced today that customers will soon be able to generate tailored privacy documents on using docCreator, its newest on-line innovation.

DocCreator allows financial institutions to initiate tailored documents—beginning with privacy disclosures—over the Internet. To use the docCreator technology, financial institutions simply log on and answer a series of questions about their privacy policies. DocCreator then uses the information to facilitate the development of privacy disclosures that are tailored to the business needs and policies of that financial institution. In addition to providing faster delivery of the privacy disclosures, docCreator offers institutions a number of ordering options to meet their operational needs. Customers can choose from:

  • Printed disclosures to hand to customers or include in mailings
  • Web documents to use on the financial institution’s web site
  • Electronic documents to use in the customer’s proprietary software or embed into their data processor’s platform
  • Electronic format to integrate into Bankers Systems’ Arta and Rembrandt documentation software

"DocCreator is another example of how Bankers Systems uses technology to provide our customers with compliance solutions in the way they want to do business," said John Bryant, Vice President of Marketing at Bankers Systems. "For professionals who prefer the convenience of the Internet, it provides them with greater efficiency, faster turnaround, and convenient access—24 hours a day, seven days a week."

As the financial services industry begins to pick up the pace in providing on-line options to consumers, it is also beginning to embrace the Internet for business operations. Many institutions recognize it as a safe, efficient way to do business and are ready for even more on-line uses.

"In a recent survey, 38 percent of our customers were interested in an Internet tool to create tailored privacy documents from Bankers Systems," said Bryant. "By launching docCreator for privacy disclosures, we’re not only making that tool available to them but developing the foundation for on-line documentation for many other types of compliance transactions."
