The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association is now accepting member nominations for its 2021 Operations & Technology Excellence Award. The award recognizes equipment finance organizations that have successfully implemented an operational excellence initiative and/or a technology innovation project.
Nominations must be received by June 21 and up to two winners will be selected. Submissions may include — but are not limited to — a new initiative, business model, customer experience improvement, consolidation, efficiency enhancement or digital transformation project. The application includes a new category for COVID-19 fast-tracked projects or technology improvements that equipment finance organizations implemented due to the new working environment created by the pandemic.
“Coming out of a year of unique technology and operational challenges, now is the perfect time to celebrate the accomplishments within the equipment finance industry,” Tawnya E. Stone, CLFP, vice president of strategic technology at GreatAmerica Financial Services and chair of the ELFA’s award subcommittee, said. “We have all made improvements and implemented innovations that will move not only our own companies but also our industry forward. You can’t be recognized if you don’t submit — so don’t delay. The submission process is easy and will be kept confidential.”
Details on award entry eligibility, requirements, the application and judging are available here.
