Crestmark Equipment Finance Selects ASPIRE™ From LEASETEAM, Inc.

OMAHA, NE March 10, 2014 — LeaseTeam, Inc., the premier solution provider in the equipment and finance marketplace, is pleased to announce Crestmark Equipment Finance has selected LeaseTeam’s single system end-to-end lease and loan management solution.

Crestmark Equipment Finance services two business channels: middle market, asset-based high technology and small ticket vendor-driven business. To support these two separate business models and continued growth, they needed a solution that offered tremendous flexibility from a partner with expertise in both business models.

According to Jeffrey Emrich, Chief Information Officer for Crestmark Equipment Finance, “Our niche is to provide a customizable experience for our customers. To do this we needed a platform that could easily handle different types of transactions. It was essential to select a platform that was flexible enough to handle both our asset-based company as well as our small ticket vendor business, as each business channel has very different work flows.

Jeff Emrich continued, “After going through a thorough business and solution assessment, we were convinced ASPIRE was the solution we needed, both now and into the future. We were also impressed with LeaseTeam’s expertise. The support has been great.”

“We’re very excited to add Crestmark Equipment Finance to our growing list of ASPIRE customers,” said Jeff Van Slyke, VP of Business Development LeaseTeam. “TIP’s diverse business model necessitates quick turnaround times, for their small ticket business, and structured /customized service for their middle market business. ASPIRE’s flexible architecture created a natural fit for meeting these requirements. ASPIRE‘s true end-to-end capabilities provide the efficiencies, transparency and visibility that is required to be nimble, and its open architecture provides the opportunity for a customized user experience. There’s an opportunity for them to do a lot of innovative things and we’re excited to be part of that.”
