Regulatory Compliance CompliDox is the only 100 percent traceable loss mitigation solution in the field services industry and replaces traditional door hangers with an automated, cloud-based, data driven, servicer branded, professional document.

Mortgage servicers control the document content using the CompliDox Web portal. Via a simple API integration between CompliDox's servers and a vendor's work flow system, hired local contractors request documents, which are generated on the fly and are then ready to be printed for face-to- face delivery. Since the entire process is digitized, contractors never have to hand write anything. The platform's unique management system allows servicers to target documents to specific geographic regions, even down to a specific ZIP code, to address the fracturing compliance Loss Mitigation requirements that are now being rolled out on a local, state, and national level. Additionally, use of servicer's logo combined with injection of customer specific data into any part of the document allows for an unmatched level of customer targeting and customization that is not possible with door hangers. Central management and real time updating of document content ensures all customers are treated exactly the same and eliminates any possible mistake of delivering wrong or out dated information to a customer and violating their consumer's rights.
