Automating documents which are complex or used frequently could save significant time and money, particularly if it enables the bank to bring work back from firms to the in-house team, or enables the business to prepare their own documents directly with less support from the legal team.  Use this benefits calculator to test the possible benefits.

How does your bank currently use document automation?

Most lenders will already be using some form of document automation in relation to customer facing lending transactions at the home loan and small business banking level, but what about other areas such as:

  • procurement documents
  • employment agreements
  • property documents
  • marketing checklists and other compliance documents
  • corporate lending (term sheets and transaction documents)
  • variation letters
  • releases of security and guarantees
  • waiver letters
  • internal forms and correspondence? 

Potential automation benefits for banking

Banking documents, which are some of the most complex legal documents you can find, require powerful automation technology.  LawHawk selected HotDocs' platform as our engine as it has more than 1,000,000 users, many in global banks such as HSBC and RBS (and BNZ in New Zealand), and can handle the complex legal documents that banks commonly produce.  Banking achievements using HotDocs' platform internationally include:  

  • Achieving 100% accuracy for facility letters in a global bank;
  • 175 work hours saved per day processing 100 page credit documents; and
  • 500,000 loan packets produced each month by a commercial lender.

Another HotDocs customer, a large law firm, achieved a 94% reduction in processing time for real estate documents.

LawHawk wants to enable similar benefits for banks in New Zealand.
