Tempe, AZ, United States, 2012/05/14 - Enhancements enable ChannelOnline’s community of value-added resellers (VARs) to now automatically offer equipment financing through ChannelOnline with LeaseStation’s totally integrated IT lease system solution - LeaseStation.com.
LeaseStation, an IT equipment finance company, and CNET Content Solutions’ ChannelOnline today announced enhancements to their integrated leasing system solution for ChannelOnline customers. The enhancements enable ChannelOnline’s community of value-added resellers (VARs) to now automatically offer equipment financing through ChannelOnline with LeaseStation’s totally integrated IT lease system solution.
ChannelOnline, a sales-cycle automation solution, provides resellers with a web-based service that automates quoting, payment options and e-commerce transactions and gives resellers total management control over the complete sales cycle. The ability to offer equipment financing through LeaseStation gives resellers using ChannelOnline an additional source of financing for their clients.
“Developing a seamless solution that is fully integrated with ChannelOnline’s system is key to providing valuable financial products to every ChannelOnline reseller and their end user customers,” according to Robert Parker, CEO of LeaseStation.
“LeaseStation is a trusted leader in IT equipment lease management, and we are pleased to be partnering with them to facilitate this valuable service through ChannelOnline,” said Debbie Andrews, Vice President of Products and Marketing at CNET Content Solutions. “We are always looking for ways to provide additional efficiency and value to the resellers using ChannelOnline, and we are confident the LeaseStation integration will enable increased product and service sales for our clients.”
The first phase of integration that was delivered in February 2012, enabled ChannelOnline users to offer LeaseStation financing to their customers directly from their internal quotes and on their e-commerce stores.
The new features announced today give the reseller more control over the leasing process and real-time communications with all aspects of the leasing process. A few of the enhancements include:
• Easier to read screens and notifications;
• More control over the setup process;
• Ability to share transactions with LeaseStation;
• Complete syncing of lease status changes through credit approval to funding;
• Ability to enter PO information directly into ChannelOnline to release an order;
• Ability for the customer to commence the lease credit application process directly from a quote.
The full integration, which enables users to execute the entire leasing process, including final acceptance and PO capture within their ChannelOnline store, is set to launch in May 2012.
