ALFA Systems meets the requirements of companies operating in the leasing, asset finance, vehicle finance and consumer finance industries. Since Version 1.0, more than 30 companies in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and Australia have selected ALFA as their core processing platform. ALFA covers the full business lifecycle, from web-based origination and pricing, through in-life processing and customer services, to end-of-agreement asset disposal - all in a single, robust, high-performance application. ALFA is used to finance more than five million assets worldwide, worth an estimated $100 billion.
âWhatâs really exciting about ALFA Systems 4.5 is the range of additional capabilities that address the most important issues facing the industryâ, said Andrew Denton, Chief Marketing Officer at CHP Consulting. âThe asset finance sector has a global outlook, and our customers and prospects require a system to support their businesses on this scale. At the same time, the industry has an ever-increasing focus on the management of the asset and associated services - particularly in the vehicle sector - as well as strong growth for e-business channels and a growing compliance burden.
âAll these issues demand more from a companyâs technology platform and, with this new release, weâve delivered an improved platform already proven to do this on three continents.â
