EmplowerCLS for Law Firms

  • >Do you prepare commercial loan documents for your lender clients the old-fashioned way – by "cut and paste"?
  • If you currently use document assembly software – or your word processor's merge code capability – are you frustrated that you need to become something of a programmer before you can generate documents?
  • Do your lender clients pressure you to lower your loan documentation fees or bill on a flat-fee basis?

The seasoned team of legal, banking, and programming professionals at MDC Software Solutions, LLC was prompted by these questions – and more questions like them – to create a new commercial lending solution that enables legal counsel and their commercial lender clients to obtain a competitive advantage.

How can EmpowerCLS give you a leg up on the competition?

Out-of-the-Box Productivity
 
Our simple and elegant data collection interface and state-specific templates allow users to quickly produce commercial loan documents.

Reduced Data Entry Costs
 
Users shouldn't need to enter data more than once. Because we store party, collateral, loan terms data, and loan documents in a relational database, you can “clone” prior loans. This will save data entry time and reduce the likelihood of errors.

Flexibility
 
Even the best document generation software can't anticipate all of the unique needs of commercial lenders and their customers. And so, our integrated, richly-featured, text editor permits users to make those inevitable one-off changes within EmpowerCLS.

Synergy
 
If law firms and their commercial lender clients both use EmpowerCLS, they are empowered to leverage each other's strengths. For example, a lender could use its data processing staff to enter party, terms, and collateral information at a cost that is likely lower than the rate charged by a law firm. Then, the lender could make the draft documents available for review and editing by outside counsel, all within the EmpowerCLS database. Such a process would allow legal counsel to provide value where needed, while the client uses fixed-cost employees to provide data entry services.

Document Delivery Options
 
Our software allows users to export documents in Microsoft Word format. This makes it easy for attorneys who represent commercial borrowers to make comments electronically during the review process. When the loan is ready to be closed, the documents may be exported in Adobe Acrobat format into an encrypted, password protected compressed file for electronic delivery to the closer's location.

Office Management Tools
 
As clients continue to expect the same level of service at the same or lower cost, time management becomes ever more important. Our reports enable users to efficiently manage the document preparation process.
Simplicity

Do your data entry personnel find themselves frustrated by the process of conforming your standard templates to the specifics of a documentation process? Are you concerned with the cost to your client of having to enter party, collateral, and financial terms data in multiple places in several documents?

  • Data need only be entered once
  • Our document assembly "engine" assures data is integrated dynamically into all documents where it is used.
Security

Do you want to ensure that confidential customer data is restricted to persons who have valid passwords and that administrative, data input, and review functions can be assigned to your staff on a task basis? EmpowerCLS allows you to enjoy the security of knowing that your loan data cannot be accessed by anyone without proper credentials.

  • Access to EmpowerCLS functionality is task-based and requires the proper user security rights for the respective task
  • Data is stored in a user-name/password protected database, with sensitive information stored in an encrypted format
Clarity

Let's be honest. While essential to any loan process, no one really enjoys reviewing loan documents. EmpowerCLS makes this tedious process more bearable by providing clarity to the review process

  • Loan data fields are highlighted in the document viewer to allow efficient verification that loan terms were properly input by the user
  • Loan documents are printed on letter-size paper with ample white space, 9-point font size, and numbered section headings to aid review
  • Shorter sentences, bullets points and numbering in body text, and minimal use of "legalese" to aid comprehension
Accountability

Would you like to check on the status of a pending loan with a few mouse-clicks, rather than make several phone calls or trips down the hall? Do you find it difficult to evaluate the productivity of your staff? EmpowerCLS makes it easier for you to hold your staff accountable by providing them access to loan process information online and in printed reports.

  • Online work-flow tools allow you to track the status of each loan
  • MDC-provided reports allow those with proper access to view the following information online or in hard copy or to export to a spreadsheet for consolidation with similar data from another source:
  • the number of loans processed using EmpowerCLS by type
  • the number of loans assigned to each of your client's loan officers
  • statistics on user productivity
  • loan documents which have been changed using EmpowerCLS's edit functionality
  • loan, administrative, and other activities conducted within EmpowerCLS
Economy

Do you look for ways to reduce your costs so that you can make a profit while giving your clients the comfort of a fixed fee? Have you considered the difficult-to-document – but no less real – cost of inefficiencies in your current work-flow system? EmpowerCLS's features will help you increase your profitability by reducing your costs.

  • Use of our online loan review process could result in noticeable savings on paper, toner, and document storage and destruction costs.
  • The EmpowerCLS interface and templates – while easy to use and understand – are designed to produce law firm-quality documents.
  • Your ability to provide the quality service you want – and your clients expect - more quickly will help you retain your hard-won client base.
