We utilize the Internet to provide business process optimization (BPO) and information services that streamline the purchase and financing of business equipment across a broad array of vertical industry segments. LeaseQ supports three users:


1 Businesses Seeking Equipment Financing – the LeaseQ website enables any business seeking equipment financing to link to leading finance companies, shop for financing, compare finance plans and rates, choose the best leasing option, lock-in financing rates, and begin the finance process easily in a few minutes.


2Equipment Dealers - LeaseQ enables equipment dealers to take control of the entire sales process (including financing) and close a sale while the business customer is still in the dealership. We provide a lead management and lease processing system that allows the dealer to link with leasing companies, banks, and other financing sources on behalf of a business seeking financing, get instant lease quotes in 60 seconds, and easily manage all the paperwork required to secure financing on behalf of the customer.


3Finance Companies – LeaseQ significantly lowers the cost of sales by delivering highly qualified lease applications to leasing companies. A free underwriting engine, real-time-credit processing capability and BPO management system enables leasing companies to create an Nth number of risk tiers with variable lease pricing for each vertical market segment, generate instant lease quotes, and manage the lease application and lease closing process all online.
