What do You need To Know About Leasing Automation?
Leasing automation is nothing new. However, despite years of technological innovations, the leasing industry has not truly benefited yet.
Why is that, you ask? Simply because the commercial leasing process is different. And much more complex to automate.
What is Lease?
A lease can be defined as an agreement between a lessor and lessee that dictates how long an asset will be rented, as well as other lease-related conditions.
Let’s dig a little deeper.
An executed lease involves several complex terms which have an objective, often quantifiable meanings. Things like leasing contracts commencement dates, end dates, etc., are instances of this. Although all leases will inevitably contain some subjective language, both the lessee and the lessor try to eliminate these instances whenever possible. Consequently, most of the terms in a typical commercial lease are objective and straightforward.
A lease, then, can be thought of as a way to organize all these terms into a single, legally binding document.
What can Leasing Automation do?
Leasing automation offers complete automation and instant credit decisioning to increase revenue and intensify client relationships. The technology is customized to precise business processes and offers fast and advanced financing. Automation can help businesses:
- Instantly approve credit applications for small to midsize business customers
- Offer flexible lease and loan financing options directly to your customers.
- Grow customer lifetime value by offering an effortless leasing experience.
- Offer an unmatched customer experience with intuitive web and mobile Interfaces
The closer analysis illustrates how a pioneering leasing-tech upgrade stands to benefit industrial- and business- equipment financiers. For instance, an equipment maker utilizing legacy technology to process financing applications, select risk-appropriate terms, make credit decisions, and collect installments may find that it’s losing ground to competitors. A solution to this problem might be found in a leasing automation platform that does all the heavy lifting so you can focus your resources on big-picture issues.
