Merchants Leasing goes Live with LeaseWave® from Odessa Technologies
Philadelphia, PA December 19, 2012 - Merchants Leasing, a division of the Merchants Automotive Group, Inc. announces they have gone live with the LeaseWave technology platform from Odessa Technologies, Inc. Merchants, a top ten national fleet management company started in 1962, specializes in providing total fleet management solutions to businesses and government agencies. Merchants is a family owned business headquartered in Hooksett, NH with more than 275 employees.
“Merchants distinguishes itself by providing customized services in an otherwise generic and very commoditized marketplace. The challenge was to leverage the power of technology to automate our highly customized services. Obviously this is not very easily done in any industry, let alone one as complex as ours. But through the implementation of LeaseWave, this is exactly the challenge that we have overcome. We are excited about the opportunity this holds for our future,” says Glen Villano, Chief Executive Officer at Merchants Leasing.
"LeaseWave is a fully browser-based system and the only leasing suite built entirely on Services Oriented Architecture, offering the best-in-class platform for automation and integration with third party tools," says Kevin Schroeder, Odessa Vice President of Automotive Leasing & Fleet Management. “LeaseWave is engineered specifically to be configurable and customizable to tailor-fit each client’s business, not just at implementation, but on an ongoing basis as requirements change. This gives our customers unprecedented flexibility in rendering and managing their products and services."
