Six Reasons to Consider Lending and Leasing as a Service for HVAC Lenders

Written By Andrew MacDowell, Director, DecisivEdge™

HVAC Lending is a complex business.  The challenges of increasing competition, equipment obsolescence, and repossession are offset by a strong demand as homes expand in total square footage and temperature volatility drives the need to constantly improve HVAC technology. These dynamics call for the need to ensure your lending platform has the features and functionality required to service growing demands of your customers and dealers.  

There are many lending platforms on the market to choose from, but which ones are the best?  The answer to that question will vary depending on who you speak with.

A few key features to consider when searching for a new lending platform:

  1. It automates many, if not all manual processes.
  2. It is flexible and provides HVAC lenders with a platform that can adapt to new markets/conditions.
  3. It has the capability to integrate with your existing decision engine.
  4. The user interface is crisp, clean and displays only pertinent information  required.
  5. It can be delivered in the cloud.
  6. With comprehensive functionality for dealers, the solution provides seamless integration between lenders and dealers.

Once you narrow down your platform search, make sure you and your team are diligent about selecting the right technology partner to implement the solution. You will want to ensure the prospective implementation partner has the expertise to achieve both technical and servicing requirements.  Click here to read a great article by DecisivEdge™ President, Sukumar Narayanan, on how to select the right technology partner,
