Kennet Equipment Leasing, a UK-based equipment finance company that is part of the Star Asset Finance network, implemented Leasepath’s true cloud platform across its entire enterprise. Kennet previously experienced significant bottlenecks in its origination workflow due to a variety of factors, including a lack of integrations of its CRM and lease origination solutions. As a result, goals for the Leasepath implementation project were to simplify key business processes, modernize core systems and align disconnected business units by centralizing all data into a single cloud solution.
“Our goal was to provide our customers and sales teams the best possible experience when applying for equipment finance,” Tim Tainty, operations director with Kennet Equipment Leasing, said. “Leasepath will allow us to streamline our processes to provide an even better experience to our customers.”
Leasepath and Kennet partnered in an effort to drive faster processing of applications even while maintaining Kennet’s selling and shared services approach. And with the full power of the Microsoft Power Platform and Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales included as a part of the Leasepath suite, Kennet has the ability to self-direct its workflows and even build new capabilities alongside Leasepath.
“Kennet wants to provide the best tools to enable our team to do their best work,” Paul Slapa, group commercial director with Star Asset Finance, said. “Leasepath allows us to innovate and explore new opportunities for growth, giving us a head-start on adopting new practices, ideas and technologies that could benefit our customers.”
“It was a pleasure working with the excellent teams at Kennet to bring the core tenets of an intelligent workplace to life, including a digitized, modernized and simplified operating environment supported by great technology,” Jeffrey Bilbrey, CEO of Leasepath, said. “Moving off a vanilla Salesforce solution to the more powerful Microsoft Dynamics environment tailored specifically for asset finance needs by Leasepath means more efficiency for not only Kennet, but for their customers and business partners too.”
