A compliance management system (CMS) isn’t a product; it’s a process.

A collection agency’s CMS needs to be part of its larger, company-wide shift to include compliance in all day-to-day operations. The overlap of compliance with operations is especially critical when it comes to a CMS. If there’s confusion, disagreement, or no cohesion, it doesn’t matter how sophisticated or robust your CMS is: it will fail. And when the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau investigates your agency, you must be able to use your CMS to prove that the operations of your agency – and your vendors – are functioning appropriately.

That’s why we compiled the key points from our webinar “Building the Foundation of a Solid CMS” into one user-friendly report, To the Point: Compliance Management Systems. Rozanne Andersen of Ontario Systems and Wendy Badger of ECMC Group outline the key operational functions the CFPB looks for in a CMS, and how your whole organization can work towards a larger culture of compliance.

"I found the “Building the Foundation of a Solid CMS” webinar incredibly informative.  It will really help with my efforts to move our company in the direction we need to go as regards compliance.  Thank you very much – kudos to all."
