Alfa announces Alfa Start, the new preconfigured software platform for US equipment finance


Alfa has launched Alfa Start, the preconfigured software platform for US equipment finance organisations of all sizes.

Through a predefined configuration and process catalogue, Alfa Start allows US equipment finance providers to take full advantage of the market-leading Alfa Systems platform, rapidly delivered at entry-level cost.

Built on Alfa’s extensive experience supporting the top providers of equipment finance in the US, Alfa Start delivers best-in-class business processes, required by operations of all sizes.

More than 30 back-office business processes are configured across a standard product set, each supported by predefined workflows, business rules, document generation and user roles.

Operational processes are backed by business-ready core configuration, incorporating best-practice behaviour for companies, products, fees and billing, contract and asset settings.

A suite of out-of-the-box integrations, including sales tax and payments, enables trouble-free assimilation into existing technology landscapes, alongside rapid deployment of integrations with current systems.

Alfa Start customers benefit from the always-on Alfa Cloud Software-as-a-Service solution, with proactively managed infrastructure, enabling test environments to be provisioned from day one.

Alfa Start can be deployed as-is or modified to suit customer needs; the fewer changes are made, the faster the delivery – offering equipment finance operations a powerful project accelerator, maximising value and minimising risk.

Emily Hammond (pictured), Alfa’s Head of Product, said: “By choosing a preconfigured instance of Alfa Systems with business-ready core configuration, US equipment finance providers can be live in production with their new Alfa Start platform in as little as 24 weeks, quickly leveraging the proven functionality and performance for which Alfa Systems has become renowned.”
