What is a Closing Book?

A closing book is used to summarize and organize all relevant documents generated through a transaction. The closing book contains large volumes of documents that are converted into a single PDF file which is fully searchable, indexed and bookmarked. Once completed the closing book can be distributed electronically or in paper format.

A closing book can also be referred to as closing binders, record books, closing transactions, transaction deal bibles, closing bibles… the list goes on. A lot has changed in the world of document production in recent years and there are now tools to help make the process of preparing and delivering closing binders much easier. Using closing book software can enhance customer satisfaction, save hours of work, reduce costly printing and distribution costs - and not to mention, it’s much more environmentally friendly!

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s how simple it is to create a professional closing binder with Bundledocs…
