Wolters Kluwer Adds Paycheck Protection Functionality

Netherlands-based Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions has added a new feature to its Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Supported by TSoftPlus, which is designed to help banks, credit unions, and other lenders support small businesses with payroll funding during the COVID-19 crisis.

According to the company, Loan Application Importer allows lenders to import their loan applications quickly and efficiently into TSoftPlus without rekeying the data, saving time and reducing errors. This functionality makes it possible for lenders to process the backlog of hundreds of thousands of PPP loan applications they may have received, and provide urgently needed payroll funding to small businesses in communities during the global pandemic.

“We are thrilled that just over a week after launching the PPP loan functionality in TSoftPlus, hundreds of banks and credit unions are relying on our technology and compliance experts to get small businesses the funding they need during this unprecedented crisis,” said Steve Meirink, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions. “Just as importantly, we are proud to be playing a key role in making a difference to so many small-business employees.”
