Why an online application matters to the funding experience.
With all this digital transformation happening around us, is the equipment financing business behind the curve? Are brokers even more behind the curve? The short answer is “Yes.”
By the numbers: In a recent survey* of over 3,000 equipment sellers:
- 73% would not consider a finance partner unless they had a digital application experience
- 79% rank “digital customer experience” as a top-5 decision criterion when choosing a finance company
What they’re saying: “I don’t understand why buying new mowers requires more paperwork and three times the conversations that buying a $500,000 home does. It also takes longer for the approval—a real one–in some cases.” –Owner of a multilocation landscaping company in the Southeast.
The clear takeaway: If you’re not pursuing and leading with better digital online customer experiences, you’re not going to win as many vendors as you’d like.
