ActiveDocs Limited, a world leader in the provision of document automation and compliance applications, today released a case study that describes the implementation of ActiveDocs Opus by CoBank, one of three wholesale banks in the USA’s $191 billion Farm Credit System that serves the lending needs of farmers, farm cooperatives and infrastructure cooperatives nation-wide. CoBank deployed ActiveDocs Opus across multiple areas of their core lending and leasing business.

Catherine Larsen, ActiveDocs VP Sales, North America, said: “This case study provides a unique insight into large-scale automation in wholesale banking that runs on the out-of-the-box ActiveDocs Opus product. Complex business rules were built into the automated templates and it has enabled CoBank’s employees to produce contractual legal documents without the need for input of legal specialists. It has been a pleasure to work with CoBank on these implementation and template automation projects.”
