Wolters Kluwer Financial Services and Baker Hill Strengthen Alliance


Pair Will Interface Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' ComplianceOne Solution With Baker Hill's OnePoint and Bank2Business

MINNEAPOLIS and CARMEL, Ind., July 10 / -- Wolters Kluwer Financial Services and Baker Hill, an Experian company, announced the two companies are creating an interface between Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' ComplianceOne® solution and Baker Hill's Bank2Business® credit origination solution and OnePoint® relationship management platform.

Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' ComplianceOne solution allows financial organizations to create a complete loan, mortgage, deposit or IRA package from a compliance, work flow and data perspective on a single delivery platform. Organizations accessing ComplianceOne from Baker Hill's Bank2Business and OnePoint solutions will utilize ComplianceOne's loan documentation functionality. By doing so, organizations will be able to seamlessly transfer customer data from one system to another, eliminating redundant data entry and reducing the number of errors typically associated with re-keying such information. ComplianceOne and the Baker Hill systems' work flows are complementary.

Wolters Kluwer Financial Services and Baker Hill have also formed a cooperative marketing agreement under which Baker Hill will refer its clients to the ComplianceOne solution and Wolters Kluwer Financial Services will refer its clients to the Bank2Business and OnePoint solutions. These complementary solutions will enhance the clients' lending experience by minimizing the effort typically required by separate loan origination and document preparation systems.

"The interface between ComplianceOne and Bank2Business and OnePoint continues the tradition of Wolters Kluwer and Baker Hill working together to deliver integrated solutions that benefit financial organizations," said John Bryant, executive vice president of Banking for Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. "We're excited to be part of an effort that helps our clients increase their operational efficiencies and grow their businesses."

Wolters Kluwer Financial Services and Baker Hill have worked together over the course of the past several years to create interfaces between Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' Bankers Systems software solutions, including the ARTA lending and deposit documentation systems and the Rembrandt lending system with Baker Hill's Bank2Business and OnePoint solutions.

"We are pleased that our relationship with Wolters Kluwer is growing," said Joe Kuntz, president of Baker Hill. "The benefits of expanding our relationship will allow us to continue to enhance the offerings that we provide our clients."

Through an easy-to-use interface, the ComplianceOne solution leverages the common database structure and robust rules management capabilities found within Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' Expere solution. Expere draws upon a central content repository to deliver data through a state-of-the-art document generation engine. The rules within Expere are based on legislative and regulatory requirements for all 51 U.S. jurisdictions, an organization's specific business practices and policies, and Wolters Kluwer Financial Services' Bankers Systems' product line.

Baker Hill's OnePoint solution is a fully integrated business banking relationship management platform that helps a financial organization's business banking team cover more ground by working together. With the OnePoint solution, the entire team has a common view into a customer's total relationship and its impact on the financial organization. Data is shared, communications are improved, administration is streamlined and senior management gets a complete picture of the sales pipeline. Bank2Business is a hosted service that uses browser-based technologies to automate the business lending origination process. It manages the complete application process -- from inception through document preparation, to boarding and loan servicing.
