November 02, 2011

If you're in the banking industry, chances are you've been bracing yourself for more than a year now, boarding up all the windows and trying to build a haphazard shelter to protect you from the approaching storm named Dodd-Frank.

It may not be a literal hurricane, but Dodd-Frank a 2,000+ page bill passed by congress last year that aims to help re-build the economy may cost banks at least $22 billion to meet new compliance requirements, according to a July 2011 Bloomberg Government report. And that's enough to make you want to gather up all the kids, the dog, and your mother's china in the station wagon and head for higher ground.

But there might be a better option. Most of our users already know that HotDocs can help save time and manpower and minimize document errors but did you ever think of HotDocs as a possible tool to ease the burdens of Dodd-Frank banking regulations?

So, we think HotDocs might be just the shelter from the storm you've been looking for.
