Asset Management

End-to-end lease and loan management.

The LeaseWave system manages the entire lifecycle of the contract (from proposal through end-of-lease) and the entire lifecycle of the asset (from build through disposition).



LeaseWave has out-of-the-box integrations with industry-leading CRM systems. It also ships with integration-ready interfaces that readily connect with other CRM systems. This integration need not be just a one-way push of information but rather a multi-level exchange of data that goes both ways, affecting decision-making, status management, trigger points and workflows in both the CRM as well as in LeaseWave.


Originations Management

Originations management is fully workflow based and is configurable to meet the needs of any type of leasing model, accommodating the entire array of go-to-market strategies prevalent in the asset finance industry. Whether your business is direct, indirect, vendor-based, broker-based, small ticket, mid-market, large corporate or a combination of all these channels, LeaseWave can manage the entire originations process.


Credit Processing

LeaseWave facilitates the entire credit evaluation and approval process, including financial spreading, credit report analysis, score carding (manual and/or automated) and overall credit review of the customer's financial information. Parallel to this process, based on the progress of the credit decision, LeaseWave also manages the preparation needed for the sale of portions of transactions where risk has to be shared across various investors.



Pricing can be handled both within LeaseWave using its own pricing engine and through integrations with industry standard third-party systems, allowing for a wide array of complexity sophistication in modeling across the leasing spectrum, ranging from small ticket to middle market to large corporate transactions.


Document Management

LeaseWave has industry-standard document management features. Documents/packages are auto-generated using templates that are user-defined and include security features that tightly control what information can be changed by which role in each instance of a document. The templates themselves can be set up against any entity in the system, providing for complete flexibility in creating documents at any desired level. LeaseWave also integrates directly with industry-standard enterprise document management systems.


Asset Management

LeaseWave is a true asset-based system, capable of managing thousands of assets on a single schedule. The entire lifecycle of the asset, from creation to disposition is comprehensively managed both from an operational as well as a financial and accounting perspective. This includes progress pays, deposits, interim rent, depreciation schedules, partial payoffs, asset-specific extensions, repossessions, refurbishing and remarketing.

Asset relationships

  • Relate assets in parent–child/children relationships for operational efficiencies
  • Break up relationships as needed (as during partial terminations)
  • Group assets (independent of parent/child relationships) for operational efficiencies
  • Clone entire groups / families of assets
  • Use business rules around the formation and break up of families / groups
  • Define a quantity against an asset if it represents more than one, and split when needed

Inventory repository

  • Leverage capabilities as an asset-based leasing system to track equipment lifecycle independent of underlying lease(s)
  • Maintain assets in inventory and lease, re-lease and remarket them as needed
  • Refurbish, mark-up/down assets in inventory prior to re-leasing or remarketing
  • Unlike in other asset finance software, define start/end dates for depreciation on off-lease assets
Takedown-Management Takedown

Takedown Management

LeaseWave supports complex installation processes. For single or multiple takedowns (where customers are looking to draw down against a line) or progress-payment based interim funding (where billing for certain assets commences even as others are being installed), the system automate the entire installation process. This functionality is closely tied to asset delivery managed by the system's Certificate of Acceptance / D&A module.

Discounting-Syndication Discounting &

Discounting & Syndication

LeaseWave supports the discounting of contracts whereby the rental stream is collateralized (partially or fully) and a note is set up on the lessor's books. Discounting can be managed on contract-by-contract basis or for a pool of leases/loans. The system's syndication capability allows for the sale (partial or full) of the rental stream (with or without the residual) with the relevant portion of the contract taken off the books.
