ELFA Reveals Agenda for 2021 Operations & Technology LIVE!

The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association unveiled the agenda for ELFA Operations & Technology LIVE!, an interactive virtual conference on Sept. 14. The conference will provide direction and support for equipment finance companies using technology to improve business processes, enhance customer satisfaction and increase operational effectiveness.

“We think everyone in ELFA will benefit from attending Operations & Technology LIVE!,” Jennifer Martin, chair of the ELFA Operations & Technology Committee, which is involved in planning and hosting the conference, said. “This year’s theme, ‘The Future of Work,’ is not just about technology; it’s about answering the questions we all have regarding what’s in store for our workplace and our workforce. Anyone who’s leading through these rapidly changing times, anyone who’s hoping to return to the ‘old’ office but in ‘new’ ways and anyone interested in how their company may evolve, should attend. We look forward to connecting and exchanging ideas with as many members as possible on Sept. 14!”
